The Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha has declared the results of Class 10th examinations 2016.
The results were formally announced by School and Mass Education Minister Debi Prasad Mishra and department secretary Ranjana Chopra at the office of the Board of Secondary Education in Cuttack. Of the 6.1 lakh students who wrote the examination, nearly 83 per cent passed.
While 2,46,240 girls cleared the examination, 2,43,482 boys were declared passed. All the students in 715 schools have passed while in 21 schools none of them could clear the examination.
Instead of publishing division and top 100 list, the students were graded A1 (above 90 marks), A2 (above 80 and below 90), B1 (70-80), B2 (60-70), C (50-60), D (40-50), E (33-40) and grade F (less than 33 per cent marks). The students securing F grade will have to take the examination again. The system was started in 2014.
“I extend by congratulations to the successful students and those who have not been successful they should remember that failure is a temporary phase. These students should not lose their balance, and should accept this failure as a challenge and move forward,” said School and Mass Education Minister Mishra. The Minister said the students unhappy with their marks can apply for re-addition by applying online between May 2 and May 11 on the website http://www.indiaresult.com/.
This year, the results could be declared early due to several technological innovations that BSE adopted. BSE president DP Nanda said this year the students filled the forms online for the examinations bringing down the possibility of students not receiving the admit cards.
From this year, BSE also did not send hard copies of the duty-sheet of teachers involved in the evaluation process of answerscripts to the schools as it was time consuming. The information on teachers and their assigned evaluation centres were uploaded on the website http://www.odisha.indiaresults.com. The headmasters of various schools were asked to log onto the website and get the details.
Apart from this, copies of answer sheets and marks awarded on those were sent online to marks tabulation centre, reducing the time gap in sending the same physically. Though this process was adopted in the last Supplementary HSC Exam, it is new for an annual HSC Examination.
