This year, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), which conducts the exam, declared the results two weeks earlier than usual due to the Live Ink Character Recognition (LICR) technology.
LICR captures and digitises marks entered on the top sheet of answer scripts and transfers the captured data to the council’s cloud-based servers directly from the evaluation centres.
