Mumbai: Putting an end to a long wait, two national boards have announced the dates of the results. The Class 12, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) results will be declared on Sunday (May 28), while the Indian Secondary Certificate Examination (ICSE) and Indian School Certificate (ISC) results will be out on Monday.
A press release issued by CBSE stated that Class 12 results can be accessed on Sunday morning on www.results.nic.in, www.cbseresults.nic.in and www.cbse.nic.in The Council of Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) announced the ISC, ICSE result dates on their portal on Friday night. "Results will be announced at 3 pm on Monday," it said. Last year the results were declared on May 6.
Results of both boards were delayed this year as the exams began at least a week later than usual because of the assembly elections held in five states. While the boards usually wrap up their exams by the first week of April, this year, the CBSE and ISC exams continued till April 26.
As a result, the evaluations began late as well. There were more reasons to worry for the CBSE students as the board was also caught in a row over moderation of marks. The Delhi high court had ruled in favour of moderation, after the board decided not to do so this year.
Although it was considering challenging the high order, it finally decided not to as it could cause further delay in declaring the results. "We are glad that the moderation of marks policy will continue, and the results will be not be delayed further," said Avnita Bir, principal, RN Podar School, Santacruz. Last year, the Class 12, CBSE results were announced on May 21.
