The Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH) withdrew the results of the Class 10 board examinations over an incorrect merit list, hours after announcing it on Monday.

In the original merit list issued by the board, Monika Rani of Fatehabad was declared as the topper with 493 marks out of 500, followed by Rupesh of Bhiwani with 491 marks. The third position was shared by 4 candidates, all of whom scored 490 marks each, it said.

“Due to some technical error, the Board of School Education Haryana is rectifying the result of Secondary Examination, March-2017,” the education board said in a statement.

Its chairperson Jagbir Singh said the computer changed the three-digit 100 score into two digit, giving D grade to top scorers due to some problem.

“A fresh list of toppers will be declared by later Monday evening,” Singh said adding 2 employees of the board have been suspended for negligence.

The board’s chairperson said the merit list stands cancelled as of now.
