The Uttarakhand Board of School Education (UBSE) will be announced the results for Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations on May 26 at 11am on its official website, officials said on Tuesday.

“We are looking forward to a better result this year as compared to last year,” the board’s secretary Neeta Tiwari said.

More than 146,160 students appeared for the Class 10 exam and 130,094 candidates wrote the Class 12 exams that began on March 5 and ended on March 24. Nearly 2,000 teachers checked the answer sheets of the students.

The board set up 1,309 examination centres in Uttarakhand and 230 were identified as “sensitive”. A majority of the “sensitive” centres were in Nainital, Chamoli and Haridwar districts of the hill state, officials said.

There are more than 17,000 government schools across all 13 districts in Uttarakhand.

Last year, the results were encouraging as 73.67% students cleared the Class 10 exam and 78.89% candidates were declared successful in Class 12.

The government, which wants the pass percentage of students to go up to 80, has made several efforts to increase the figures.

The board adopted the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) pattern. It also decided to introduce multiple choice questions for the first time this year to better the statistics but its success can only be ascertained after the results, an official said.

“Various problems are encountered by schools situated in remote areas. Lack of teachers and infrastructure are a few issues due to which the pass percentage could not be increased over the years,” the board’s former secretary VP Simalti said citing reasons for the low pass percentage of the students.
