When asked if 79 candidates will be awarded the first rank, WBBSE President Kalyanmoy Ganguly said, “I can say this much that these students have been awarded 697 marks. And there is no merit list this year unlike in past.”
Ganguly also said students unsatisfied with today’s results will be able to sit for tests once the COVID- 19 situation improves but when that happens, the original result will become invalid.
Meanwhile, The West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) will announce the class 12 board result or the Uchha Madhyamik result on July 22 at 3 pm. The results will be available on websites, SMS, and apps only after 4 pm.

According to a notification published on the official website, all schools can collect admit cards, mark sheets and certificate of Madhyamik Pariksha (SE) from their respective camp offices at 10 am on July 20. However, only parents are allowed to collect these documents from the schools while following strict Covid-related protocols. Students will not be allowed to visit schools to collect mark sheets keeping in view the current Covid situation.
A notification by the WBBBSE says, “Provisional results of Madhyamik Pariksha, 2021 have been published by WBBSE with a view to providing immediate information to the examinees. These cannot be treated as original mark sheets. West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) is not responsible for any inadvertent error that might have crept in the results of Madhyamik Pariksha 2021 being published through this website.”
After demands from people to cancel WBBSE class 10 and 12 board exams, the West Bengal govt canceled both exams on June 8, 2021. There was a lot of uncertainty on the cancelation plans as Class 10 board exams were supposed to be scheduled on June 1, 2021 but were later canceled.
A committee was formed to decide the assessment pattern after Madhyamik 10th examinations were cancelled. The evaluation pattern is based on 50-50 criteria with a 50 percent weightage on class 9 final exams and another 50 percent on internal assessment scores.
The number of girls was higher than boys this year. While 6,13,849 females appeared for the exams, the number of boys who appeared was 4,65,850.
