MP Board Class 12th result 2021: The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) announced that results for class 12 students will be released on July 29. The results will be announced at 12 noon. Students may check their results at mpbse.nic.in, mpbse.mponline.gov.in or mpresults.nic.in.
While the examinations were not conducted for class 12, owing to the surge in Covid-19 cases, the results for students will be declared on the basis of alternative assessments. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had previously stated in an announcement that the basis for evaluating students and forming results is to be decided by a group of ministers, in consultation with experts.
Previously, Class 12 examinations were to start from April 30 but were postponed due to the pandemic. The authorities then discussed ways to conduct the examinations in offline mode, during the month of July. However, the examinations were eventually cancelled due to the second wave of Covid-19. While in the previous year the board managed to conduct all examinations for class 12 students and formed results based on the examinations, the state of the pandemic in 2021 did not provide conditions conducive for conducting examinations.

“Class 12 board exams will not be conducted in Madhya Pradesh this year. Children’s lives are precious to us.”, said Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in a tweet. The announcement further stated, “We will worry about their career later. When the burden of COVID-19 is on the children, we cannot put the mental burden of examinations on them.”
Last year, 8.5 lakh students appeared for the higher secondary examinations, of which 68.81% passed. Female students outperformed male students, although the pass percentage for both had gone down. Last year, the MP board for the first time in 30 years, declared the results for class 10 and class 12 separately.
