CBSE 12th Result 2017: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the results for Class 12th after uncertainty prevailed for over a week leaving students anxious. This anxiety for students may well be over, but now they must start rushing to ensure they get admission to the colleges they desire as well as prepare for the competitive examinations they have applied for. The students can check the results on the board’s website and the CBSE has advised them not to visit its office. So, while the wait is over, students will definitely not get a chance to rest on their laurels. Anxiety and panic gripped students after the Delhi High Court had earlier this week ordered the board to continue with its moderation policy which was scrapped last month. Students who appeared for the examination can now check heir results at cbseresults.nic.in, in case cbse.nic.in does not work. Check out here CBSE 12th Result 2017 top 5 points:
