The education board has added several new abbreviations in their academic mark sheets this year. Here is the complete list:

RT (Repeat Theory): Students with RT need to appear for theory compartment examinations .

RW (Results Withheld): This a new abbreviation has been added due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a few papers were cancelled for which 400 students’ result could not be calculated. The RW therefore states that the results have been withheld and will be declared later.
