Putting an end to much hearsay, the CBSE board officially announced on Monday night that Class 10 results would be declared after 10am on Tuesday.
Students, so far buoyed along by news report that suggested a different date, are relieved to know that results will finally be out on Tuesday.
“It was so annoying to keep waiting and hearing all these different dates,” said Harsha Khara, 15, a Class 10 student. “Now it’s finally coming out and I’m waiting to know how I’ve performed.” Khara is among the first batch of students for whom the Class 10 board exam was optional. He was one of the nearly 16,000 students in the state to have opted to take the board exam, with nearly 6,000 students preferring to take the school-based exam instead.
Either way, all 21,000-odd students in the state will receive the same report cards and be graded along the same pattern when they find out how they have done. “I’m looking forward to the new report card they had spoken about,” said Khara.
This year’s report cards will include information on students’ curricular and extra-curricular performances. “There will be a lot of information in the new report cards which will be good for parents to know,” Vineet Joshi, the board’s chairperson had earlier said.
The board will only release the results for the Chennai region, which includes Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Puducherry, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Daman and Diu. The board has not specified when the Class 10 results for the country’s other regions will be announced.
