Results of the State Board Plus Two public examinations will be declared on Thursday (May 14), just a day after the State goes to polling in the general elections and when tired teachers return after a hectic poll duty from centres located in different parts.
The directorate of government examinations surprised many on Tuesday by declaring that the results of the Board examinations will be released at 9 am on May 14. “School students can get their marks at the same time from their respective schools,” an official release issued by the state government said. The results can be accessed on a host of websites and through phone and e-mail as well.
Earlier, there were intense speculations about the date of the results leading to anxiety among the student community. Initially it was learnt that the directorate of government examinations was under pressure from the school education ministry to declare the results before the elections were held to create positive vibes among voters. However, later officials had indicated that the results will be published only around May 18 by when the results of the general elections would be announced and the teachers who were deputed for poll duty would have returned to their homes.
The decision to sandwich the results of the public examination between the time when the State goes to the polls and the results of the elections are declared has made critics wonder about the need for exhibiting such urgency.
Officials, however, discounted any ulterior intentions behind the decision and said since the results were ready they decided to publish “to end the anxiety of students and parents as the admission season has already begun.”
Officials said the students can register for free at the website of the school education department, www.pallikalvi.in, to get their marks via SMS. BSNL subscribers can send a message in the following format: Send HSC to 54373 to get the results on their mobile phones.
