The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE), Odisha on Friday informed that results of the Plus-2 examination will be released in the second week of August. The decision was taken based on the recommendations of the expert committee constituted by Odisha government earlier. The expert committee has suggested objective criteria for alternative assessment of the examinees of Annual Higher Secondary Examination, 2021.
While the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination) have already come up with the evaluation formula for Class 12 exams, all eyes are now on the criteria the Odisha CHSE Board is going to adopt. The Vice Chairman of Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE), Tusharkanti Tripathy on Thursday (June 17) made a big revelation in this regard. According to Tripathy, matriculation or the Class 10 examination would play an important role in the calculation of Plus-2 Board Examination marks.
