CBSE may declare class X and XII results late this year
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) may declare the board exam results of class X and XII late this year. The CBSE Board exams for 2017-17 were delayed due to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election.
A total of 16.67 lakh candidates from 16,354 schools across the country have appeared for Class X exam, while around 10.98 lakhs candidates from 10,677 schools are sitting for their Class XII exams.
The CBSE board is trying its best to declare the Class X exam results before May 20 and the results for Class XII by the end of May. According to officials, delay occurs in publishing results mainly because the Board needs to wait for results from other regions. The maximum marks is 100 for each subject. Out of the total 100 marks, the theory exam will be of 50 marks, and 50 marks are allocated to internal assessment/practical examination. A candidate needs to score 33 per cent marks in both board exam and practical exam to pass the subject.
