“The tabulation work is almost done. I will declare the publication date of the state board Class X results on Monday,” said school and mass education minister Samir Ranjan Dash on Sunday.
The Class X examination was conducted by Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha. This board will publish the results too.
Examination was started on April 29 and continued till May 7. The exams were held in two terms only for the 2021-2022 academic session to help examinees improve their scores as they faced several hardships owing to absence of physical classes in the past two years. It was that decided if term two in April could not be held due to the pandemic, marks would be given as per the previous term.
As one more hour has been added to the working hour of the Odisha Legislative Assembly during the Monsoon session the session will function till 7 pm.
“The House will now function for six hours with the afternoon session starting from 4 pm and it will continue till 7 pm instead of 6 pm,” said Speaker Bikram Keshari Arukha.
Students, parents upset over delay in board results
Delay in publication of this year’s Class X and XII CBSE, ICSE and state board examination results has irked students and parents, triggering a concern over their plan for higher studies.
Although the boards had introduced revised assessment systems to make the evaluation process easier in the post Covid-19 pandemic time, the delay seems to have failed the initiative.
Instead of waiting for the results, several private schools have started classroom teaching for Class XI following admission of students from the same as well as other institutes.
“Students appeared for the board exams this year amid several difficulties. They have been eagerly waiting for the results as a lot of things depend on the board exam scores. If the results are not declared on time, their upcoming academic session would also get delayed, ”said Satya Narayan Mishra, a parent, who has already admitted his son, once an ICSE board student, to a CBSE school in Class XI.
“The number of subjects and answer sheets under CBSE is much more than that of the state boards. So it will take time to evaluate and declare the results,” said a teacher of a city-based CBSE school.
Also, teachers cited conducting two board exams — in January and April — as the reason for the delay in publication of results.
“After the Class XII board exams, a huge number of students prepare for JEE and NEET. Many opt for various other fields. How can you decide what to study and where in the next level without having the board exam results?” asked another parent.
