Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) will declare the results of Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations on the same day on Friday in a departure from the ongoing practice of announcing both separately.
According to MPBSE chairperson SR Mohanty, the decision to declare the results both of Class 10 and Class 12 together was taken to make students stress free.
“Earlier, the result of Class 12 used to be declared first and after a gap of a week, the result of Class 10 was declared. Thus for about a week the students of Class 10 remained in stress and the news of the failure of students in Class 12 used to disturb them a lot,” Mohanty said.
Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will declare the results and felicitate the meritorious students.
The state government will pay the tuition fees of those who score more than 85% in the Class 12 exam to help them continue higher education. Students who score less than 85% marks will be given the facility of an interest-free loan to pursue higher education in the best institutes of India.
Nearly 13 lakh students took the Class 10 exam and 5.50 lakh students wrote the class 12 exam.
The evaluation of the answer sheets was done in two phases and evaluators were asked to check them carefully. If a student applies for a revaluation and their doubt is legitimate, the evaluators will have to pay a fine.
Teachers were paid Rs 11 to check a Class 10 an answer sheet and Rs 12 for Class 12.
