Cuttack: Results of the annual High School Certificate (HSC) examinations will be announced on April 27, the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) informed on Monday.

Talking to media persons, BSE president Prof Dakhshya Prasad Nanda said the results will be announced at 9 AM at the Board’s headquarters office here in the presence of School and Mass Education minister Debi Prasad Mishra and commissioner-cum-secretary of the concerned department, Ranjana Chopra.

“For the students, the results will be available in two websites www.indiaresults.com and www.bseodisha.nic.in after 10 AM. Besides, the students can also know their results from their mobile phones. To know the results, they will type ORI10 (space) roll number and then SMS it to 58888,” Nanda said.

He further said if the students find any discrepancy in the marks they have secured in any subject, they can apply for re-addition or rechecking.

“For re-addition or rechecking, the students will have to apply online through www.indiaresults.com from May 2 to 11 (till midnight),” he added.

Asked how the Board has managed to announce the results before schedule, Nanda attributed it to the good work done by the district administration, police administration, the teachers engaged in the valuation and last but not the least, the entire staff of the Board. “It is not a one-man show. It is team work which has made it possible for the Board to announce the results before schedule,” he pointed out.

He said adoption of new methods by the Board this has helped in the early announcement of results.

“This year, we had made arrangements to send the subjective marks of the students from the valuation centres to the result processing firms online. By adopting this new method, we have not only saved time, but also ensured that there will be error-free results,” Nanda informed.

Notably, a total of 6,01,348 Regular and Ex-Regular students had appeared in the examinations in 2882 centres, which had begun on February 22 and concluded on March 4.

The evaluation of answer sheets had begun on March 11.
