'Results Declared Early to Facilitate UG Admissions': CBSE

In a first, the CBSE announced the class 12 results way ahead of schedule following a Delhi High Court order to complete the process before the undergraduate admissions begin.

The Central Board of Secondary Education announced the results within 28 days, around three weeks before the usual schedule, as the exams had begun on 15 February had concluded on 3 April.

Speaking on the CBSE move, a board official told PTI: "The Delhi High court had asked all boards to finish the result process before the undergraduate admissions begin so there is no hassle about pending results and students being stuck."

The CBSE was also ahead of the ICSE board which announces the results before it every year.

The board had advanced the commencement of the examination by a fortnight this year.
