Cuttack: The results of the annual Matric examination will be declared by the second week of May. This was informed by Board of Secondary Education (BSE) president Jahanara Begum on Wednesday.
“The evaluation of Matric answer sheets was completed today successfully. The biggest difficulty which we faced was the boycott by the block grant teachers. Though the evaluation process was quite slow on the first day, we could accelerate from the following day and complete it as per the schedule,” said Begum.
“The result processing has already been started and the final processing for the publication of result will begin next week. We will be able to declare the results by the second week of May if everything as it is now, goes well,” she added.
The BSE president further said that steps are being taken for declaration of error-free results this year.
The annual High School Certificate Examinations (HSCE) was held between February 23 and March 8. As many as 5,90,363 students had appeared the examinations in 2818 exam centres.
The BSE had engaged 13,285 teachers for the evaluation of the answer sheets which began in 57 centres across the state on March 20.
