West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) has declared the results for Madhyamik 2019 or Bengal’s Class 10 board examination on May 21.

Here is the direct link to check West Bengal board Class 10 exam results.

Students will also be able to check their results on the official websites of the board namely wbbse.org and wbresults.nic.in.”

This year the result has been declared much ahead of what it was in 2018. Last year, Madhyamik results were announced on June 6. The pass percentage last year was 85.49%.

In 2019, Bengal’s Class 10 board examination started from February 12 and continued till February 22. This year the number of aspirants stood at 10,64,980, a dip by 18,408 than what it was in 2018. Of the total of 10,64,980 aspirants this year, 6,03,311 (56.65%) were girls and 4,61,669 (43.35%) were boys.

Following reports of question paper leaks during the previous years, in 2019, WBBSE took a number of precautionary measures including changing the norms of opening question paper packets.

This year, the invigilators opened sealed packets of question papers in front of students and then distributed the same among them. The decision was taken following the incident in 2018 when the headmaster of Subhasnagar High School in Jalpaiguri district of north Bengal was charged with opening question paper packets 35 minutes before the scheduled time.

Restrictions were also imposed on invigilators carrying mobile phones to the exam halls. They had to deposit their phones to the venue-in-charge (who will be a government officer) at least 30 minutes before the commencement of the exam.

However, despite such precautions several incidences of question papers being leaked were reported from different corners of the state. Criminal Investigation Department (CID), West Bengal also made a number of arrests in this connection.

State education minister, Partha Chatterjee claimed that such incidents were deliberate attempts by a a section to malign the state government’s image. He also sought a report from WBBSE on such incidences of paper leak, following which CID took over the investigation.
