www.cbse.nic.in 2017 result class 12| CBSE 12th result 2017 will expectedly be announced at cbse.nic.in on May 24, the date many reports are pointing to. The silver lining is that one CBSE official was quoted saying that CBSE class 12 result will surely be published before May 27, 2017.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to declare the results of Class 12 Board Examination within this week. The expected date for the declaration of the results in May 24, 2017 however, the board has not yet updated anything as such on its official website. Though this year the CBSE exams were postponed due to Assembly Elections held in five states, but, the Board will declare the results on time to avoid any delay in admissions for various undergraduate courses in the universities.
Out of all this, the key fact is as per the senior officials of the Board the result won’t be delayed beyond May 27. Last year, the results for class 10 were released on May 21 while class 12 results were declared on May 28. The Board examinations of the CBSE board began on March 9 and continued until till April 29, 2017. This year, nearly 10.98 lakh candidates appeared for the Class 12 exams out of which 4,60,026 were girls and 6,38,865 were boys. The highest number of students registered for the class 12 boards exams were from Delhi which is 2,58,321.
CBSE class 12 marks likely to dip, bringing down DU cutoffs
The average marks in this year’s Class XII results of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools are likely to decrease by up to 10% following the board’s decision not to ‘moderate’ or ‘standardise’ — CBSE’s terms for inflating marks. This follows a resolution adopted at a meeting of school boards, called by CBSE on April 24, not to increase marks through moderation.
CBSE as well as the state boards have been inflating marks in the past. As first reported by TOI, CBSE gave as many as 16 extra marks in the Class 12 Maths exam in 2016 in the all-India set of papers and 15 marks in the Delhi set during the process of ‘standardisation’.
In nine subjects, marks were ‘standardised’ by more than 10%. As a result, a student with 77 marks in mathematics may have ended up getting 93 marks. In 2016, the pass percentage for CBSE had touched an all-time high of 83.05% and over 80,000 students scored 90% and above.
The move comes ten months after a reporter of CNN-News18 exposed the discrepancies in the system of standardisation of marks practised by the CBSE and the ISC, two of the country’s largest board exams.
CBSE tells Delhi University: Don’t let our students suffer
As per the latest update of May 17, 2017 the Central Board of Secondary Education chairman has asked Delhi University Vice-Chancellor to award “appropriate weightage” to CBSE students for admission to undergraduate programmes this year so that they do not lose out to candidates from other state boards that inflate their Class 12 results.
