The Class 10 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exam results will be announced on Saturday.
This is the last batch of students who had the option of appearing for a version of the exam set by the school. From the next academic year, all students will have to appear for the common board exams.
Around 16.6 lakh students from across India wrote the CBSE exams held between March 9 and April 10. They can access their results on the following websites: www.results.nic.in, www.cbseresults.nic.in and www.cbse.nic.in. Schools will get an email with all results.
After the CBSE Class 12 results announced last week showed students fared poorly, CBSE Class 10 students in Mumbai were dreading the results. “It was evident that the board took corrective measures to prevent inflation of marks in Class 12 exams. If the same is done for Class 10, it will bring the scores down,” said Avnita Bir, principal, RN Podar School, Santacruz.
With more students scoring over 90 in ICSE results, there is a lot of pressure on CBSE students. “Students from all boards will be in the same pool for Class 11 admissions, so we hope that there is a uniform marking policy across boards,” said Bir.
