Results of the Class 12 board exams in West Bengal are scheduled to be announced today at 3pm. Students will be able to check the results on websites and apps from 4pm, officials have said.
The results of the Class 10 board exams were declared on July 20. This year 1,079,749 students had enrolled for the exam. All students passed the exam, including 82,000 candidates who could not make it through last year.
The Mamata Banerjee administration, on June 7, cancelled both Class 10 and 12 board exams for the year 2021, because of the prevailing Covid-19 situation. All educational institutions are closed in the state.
“The Class 12 board exam will be evaluated giving 40% weightage to the marks a student procured in four subjects of Class 10 board exam, 60% weightage to marks obtained in Class 11 annual exam and taking into account the marks of the student’s projects and practicals in Class 12,” Mahua Das, president of West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education, said.
