The Chhattisgarh Board Of Secondary Education (CGBSE) is likely to declare the results for class 10 and 12 board exams within a week at its official website, cgbse.nic.in. Earlier, talking to indianexpress.com, VK Goel, Secretary, CGBSE had said that the result for both the classes can be expected by mid-June.
Over 3.84 lakh students have registered for class 10 and over 2.66 lakh students registered for class 12 board exams with Chhattishgarh Board. The evaluation of answer scripts had been completed by May 25 and the result will be declared after marks of internal assessment are added and the result is processed. It will be available at cgbse.nic.in and results.cg.nic.in, once declared.
From this year on, the board had mandated that candidates will not get any extra answer sheets. Class 10 students will get a 32-page and class 12 students will get 42-page long answer sheets. For other classes this year, no exams could be conducted.
