The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will likely declare the board results for class 10 and 12 by the third week of May. The students can check their results from the CBSE’s official websites, cbse.nic.in and cbseresults.nic.in. Central Board of Secondary Education secretary Anurag Tripathi told PTI that the board results for class 10 and 12 are likely to be declared by the third week of May. Evaluation of answer sheets of board exams commenced on March 14, the official said.
Tripathi said following the instances of the paper leak last year, a special app called CMTM app (Confidential Material Tracking and Monitoring) was launched this time, and it was made compulsory for all centre supervisors to send geo-tagged and time-tagged pictures of exam day processes. These were monitored very closely at the headquarters and regional office-level. With over 3,500 teachers not turning up for evaluation, their respective school managements have been issued show cause notices and will have to shell out a fine of Rs 50,000 for failing to comply with the board’s orders.
