The Kerala Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) or Class 10 board examination results will be announced on Friday, officials said on Thursday.
State education minister C Raveendranath will hold a press conference in the state capital Thiruvananthapuram at 2pm to announce details of the results. Students can check their results at www.kerala.gov.in, keralaresults.nic.in and keralapareekhabhawan.in
This year 4,55,906 regular students and 2,588 private students appeared for the SSLC exam that was conducted in March at 2,933 centres in the state and 9 centres in Lakshadweep and the Middle-East region.
This year, the results were delayed after the mathematics question paper was leaked and the exam was rescheduled. At least 11 questions of the model exam were repeated in the final triggering a controversy.
The embarrassed government later cancelled the exam conducted on March 20 and rescheduled it for March 30. It later announced a vigilance inquiry into the paper leak. During the investigation, it was found that an alleged nexus between 2 teachers, who set the question paper, and a private tuition centre in Malappuram led to the leak.
State education secretary Usha Titus, who submitted a report to the government, recommended many changes in the present system and favoured an expert committee to overhaul the examination sector.
Last year, the results were declared on April 27 and the pass percentage was 96.59%.
