The results for ICSE or Class 10 and ISC or Class 12 board examination will not be announced on Monday and may take another 10 days for the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations to declare them as the evaluation of answer sheets is yet to be completed, a top official said.
A number of Indian Certificate of Secondary Education and Indian School Certificate exam were rescheduled due to the assembly elections that were held in 5 states early this year resulting in the delay of the announcement of results.
“The evaluation work is still very much on even today,” Gerry Arathoon, CISCE chief executive and secretary, told Hindustan Times over the phone from Sri Lanka.
“We will announce the exact date of results on the council’s website a much in advance. We cannot give you the dates as of now. We are working on it. And once the evaluation work ends we will announce the result dates,” Arathoon added.
Last year, it was announced on May 6 and the year before that they were declared on May 18.
Nearly 2,50,871 candidates - 1,76,327 for the ICSE and 74,544 for ISC - registered for the exams this year.
There were at least 8 papers that clashed with election dates in the 5 states and were conducted on a later date. The ISC examination was advanced by a week while ICSE exams were delayed by 10 days.
As per the revised timetable, the ICSE exams began from March 10 and ended on April 21 and the ISC exams were held from January 30 to April 26.
The ISC exams were to begin on February 6 and the ICSE were to start from February 27, as per the initial schedule announced in December 2016.
