Good luck Mumbai students, ISC and ICSE results will be declared online today
Mumbai city news: Schools are expecting high scores, since students said they found the papers easy this yearUpdated: May 29, 2017 13:33 IST
The wait is finally over for more than 18,000 students from Maharashtra who appeared for the Indian School Certificate (ISC) and Indian Secondary Certificate of Education (ICSE) exams held in April. The results will be declared online today at 3 pm.
Nearly 2 lakh students from across India appeared for the exam.
Students can access their results by clicking on the ‘Results 2017’ link on the Council of Indian School Certificate website - www.cisce.org or through SMS.
This year, results have been delayed by nearly a month as the exams began late owing to assembly elections in five states. Last year, the results were announced on May 6.
The delay led to stress among students, who were worried about missing out on admissions to higher education institutes. “This is the first time that the results have been delayed. I want to apply to Delhi University and was anxious as to whether I would be able to do so on time,” said Shruti Pawar, an ICSE student from Malad.
Mumbai schools are expecting high scores, since students said they found the papers easy this year, said principals. “We are expecting a 100% result like every year. Scores might shoot up as students found the papers easy,” said Zeenat Bhojabhoy, principal, Jamnabai Narsee School, Vile Parle.
However, Bhojabhoy added that she was worried about specially abled students who appeared for the exam. Echoing her sentiments, Alice Vaz, principal, Ryan International School, Kharghar said, “The exams were student-friendly this year. We hope our students, especially those with learning disabilities get a good percentage so they can seek admission to the college of their choice.”
Students will get a digitally signed statement of marks and certificates through a Digi Locker facility, in which the documents are safely stored. Students can access it through a login ID and password. Even migration certificates for ISC will be sent there.
This year, students can also apply for rechecking of papers directly, using the council’s portal. This facility will be available for only seven days - from May 29 to June 6.
Schools can write to the cisce helpdesk - firstname.lastname@example.org or call the toll free number 022-267226106 if they have any doubts.
