The results of the annual Matriculation Examination conducted by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) will be published as soon as possible, said the board’s vice president Nihar Ranjan Mohanty on Monday.

Addressing the media, Mohanty said, “As compared to other boards, we will publish our results soon. We are aiming at publishing error-free results. Though there is a directive to publish results within 45 days, the exact date cannot be announced at this point of time.”

“The evaluation was carried out smoothly at 55 examination centres. Except for two-three centres, the evaluation process concluded on April 13. Now we are correcting the discrepancies,” Mohanty added.

Sharing details about the evaluation process, Mohanty said, “The first two phases- conduct of the examination and evaluation have been completed. The third phase is defect compliance and processing. We are now working on defect compliance and then tabulation and processing will be done. Then only the results can be declared.”

Asked about the evaluation of students who suffered due to question paper printing mistakes, the senior official said, “Around 3000 to 5000 students were affected due to the glitch in social science set-B question paper. We came up with a special mechanism and the issue has been resolved. Necessary steps have been taken to ensure that no student suffers due to the glitch.”

The dropout rate can be ascertained after the publication of the results, Mohanty added.

Notably, the annual High School Certificate (HSC) Summative Assessment-II examination 2023 was conducted from March 10 to 20.

More than 5 lakh students appeared for the matriculation or the Class 10 high school certificate examination in 3,218 examination centres across the state.
