The final result of Class 10 is based on 60% summative assessment (SA) and 40% formative assessment.
The students who fall in E1 or E2 category (students in this category are eligible for improvement of performance) they can reappear in any or all the five main subjects, excluding the optional subject, for improving their CGPA, in July.
Baldeep Pandher, principal of Green Land Senior Secondary School, Jalandhar Bypass, said, “This year we could download the results easily as the board had given three websites from where the result could be downloaded. I am glad that our students are performing well and results are improving every year.”
A student, Prabhdanvir Singh, a student of BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar, said, “I am very happy with my score (CGPA 10). I was so nervous when the result was announced and I had to wait for an hour to know about my result as their was some problem in the system.”
The result was declared in the afternoon, but due to too much load on the server, the website couldn’t be accessed by many. All the schools and students when tried to check the results, the website crashed. It was after two hours that the schools in the city were able to access the results.
