The Meghalaya Board of School of Education (MBOSE), Tura today declared the results for SSLC and HSSLC (Arts stream). Students can check their scores on the official websites — mbose.in, megresults.nic.in. The board has, in a notice, said there will be no display of results in MBOSE Office, Tura/Shillong and even in the examination centres due to the COVID-19 situation.

While the CBSE, CISCE and several state boards announced the cancellation of examinations due to the surge in Covid-19 cases, the MBOSE decided to conduct SSLC, HSSLC examinations.

Ongoing MBOSE examinations will continue unaffected.”, said Chief Minister Conrad Sangma in a tweet.
