CBSE 12th result 2017: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to declare the class 12th results soon this month, although there is no official notification from the board regarding this as yet. According to IndiaResults.com, the board will declare the class 12th results on May 24 and 10th results on June 2. But not many would know that the scores this year may well take a dip as compared to the scores like 99.4 percent and thereabout that were secured last year by the candidates. This is likely to happen after 32 school boards this year decided not to inflate their class 12 marks in a meeting organised by CBSE on April 24 – CBSE does not want their students to lose out to state boards that allegedly inflate their class 12 results, says Indian Express report. As a result, CBSE expects a drop in results this year after many years after the passing of the resolution not to inflate marks.
On May 17, just a few days before the declaration of the CBSE class 12th board results, Chairman of CBSE, R K Chaturvedi asked the Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University, Yogesh Tyagi to give ”appropriate weightage” to CBSE students during admission to undergraduate programmes this year. CBSE has taken this step to protect its students from boards which may not abide by the resolution. In a letter dated, May 9 CBSE asked Delhi University to make changes in the admission policy so that concessions can be provided to the students of CBSE, according to an Indian Express report.
Board examinations this year were conducted a little late due to the State Assembly Election, due to which the results have been shifted to the last week of May. CBSE successfully conducted the class 12th board results from March 9 to April 29, while class 10th results were conducted from March 9 to April 10. While the maths examination paper was deemed difficult, other papers were according to the expectations of the students.
2017 has been an eventful year for CBSE. Many changes were practiced by the board to keep school affiliated to it in order.
