The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) Odisha on Saturday announced that the results of the 2024 matriculation examination will be declared on time.

Adequate measures have been taken by the BSE for the evaluation of answer copies and already the process for the subjective answer copies has started from March 14.

BSE President, Srikant Tarai informed that for the first time the students can download digital certificates within seven days of publication of results.

Earlier, students were collecting the certificates from schools after one month. Now the students can get hard copies of certificates within 15 days from their respective schools, said Tarai.

BSE officials informed that over 5.62 lakh students appeared for the matriculation examination this year.

"Elaborate arrangements have been made for the evaluation process which is likely to start tomorrow at 55 centres across Odisha. Around 16235 teachers will be engaged for the evaluation of various subjects which will be supervised by senior BSE officials," the officials informed.

“As several teachers will be engaged in election duty, valuation and result publication, it would be a herculean task to complete all tasks. The evaluation process may take some time as some teachers will have to go for election-related training work. The BSE has switched to the traditional mode of evaluation,” informed BSE vice-president Nihar Mohanty.

The matriculation examination for class 10 students was conducted from February 20 to March 4, 2024. BSE officials informed that arrangements have also been made to transfer subjective marks directly from the evaluation centres to processing server online.
