CBSE class XII results to be announced today
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to announce the results of the Class 12 Term I later on Friday. Students can verify their grades by visiting the board's websites at cbse.gov.in and cbseresults.nic.in. The CBSE board examinations were held semester-wise for the first time. While the Term I examinations were held last November-December, the Term II exams will begin this April.
Why does this story matter?
Over 36 lakh students took last winter's CBSE board examinations, which were held for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. This academic year's exams were held in semesters—with practical exams in both—and each semester was worth 15 points. This year's results will also be given in the form of marks earned by candidates, but no student will be labeled as "pass" or "fail."
How to check the results?
Visit the CBSE website at cbse.nic.in. On the home page, go to the 'CBSE 10th Term 1 Result 2022' or 'CBSE 12th Result 2022' link. You will then be required to enter the login information, including roll number, date of birth, and school number. Thereafter, the CBSE board exam results will appear on the screen. The grade cards can be downloaded from the website.
Detailed results would be available on DigiLocker
Students can also visit digilocker.gov.in and enter their registered mobile number to log in. Then, go to 'CBSE' under the 'education' section of DigiLocker. Select "Class 10 passing certificate and Class 10 mark sheet" or "Class 12 passing certificate and Class 12 mark sheet." Enter the year, name, and roll number. Once available, download the CBSE Term 1 mark sheet from DigiLocker.
Class X results will follow
CBSE will also disclose the Class X results once the Class XII results are announced. If the CBSE reveals the Class XII results by Friday, the Class X results will be revealed either on Saturday or latest by Monday, The Times of India reported. Earlier, the CBSE Class XII result was supposed to be revealed on Wednesday (March 9).
Changes in rules for exams
The CBSE stated that the time of each test will remain three hours, as in previous years, despite the number of marks being slashed in half. Some school principals had thought that the length of the examination would also be reduced. Earlier, the practical tests were held in a single session, with each paper worth 30 points and a time limit of 3 hours.
CBSE board exams were canceled in 2020-21
In light of COVID-19, the CBSE examinations for students in Classes X and XII in the preceding academic session, 2020-21, were canceled. The grades were assigned using a different grading procedure. As a result, the board created a strategy to divide the tests into two terms. For the academic session 2021-22, several state boards have notably elected to follow the CBSE format.Share this timeline
