New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare the results of Class 12 board examination 2017 on its official website on Sunday. Candidates can check their results of the exam held between March 9 and April 29 at cbse.nic.in or cbseresults.nic.in after they are declared.
Nearly 11 lakh – 6,38,865 boys and 4,60,026 girls – candidates registered for the CBSE Class 12 exam this year against 10,67,900 – 6,21,259 boys and 4,46,641 girls – last year. It was an increase of 2.82% over the last year’s numbers. The number of centres and schools registered for the Class 12 exam were 3,502 and 10,678 respectively.
The Central Board of Secondary Education, which sets the curriculum and organises school-clearing examinations for millions of children across the country, has decided to continue with its five-point moderation policy for this year. Sources said the scores this year may dip slightly compared to last year’s since marks will not be spiked.
“Results will be declared in light of the high court’s directions and keeping our declared five-point moderation policy in mind. There will be strictly no spiking of marks and the decision taken in the April meeting will also be followed,” a source said.
