In a first CBSE results 2018 to be available on Google
The CBSE results 2018 are expected to be declared soon. This time the CBSE results would be available on Google as well as the official website.
This would mean that the results would be visible directly when students search for the results. Earlier after searching on Google, students would log into the hosting portals. Now the results would be available directly.
CBSE announced its partnership with Google. "We are collaborating with Google for smooth dissemination of results through an easy and secure platform," Rama Sharma, Senior Public Relations Officer, CBSE, had said in a statement.
"With over 260 million students enrolled in more than 1.5 million schools across India, we believe having reliable, seamless, and safe access to education-related information is crucial," said Shilpa Agrawal, Product Manager, Google Search. "That's why today's updates are just the first step of many to improve access to information about important exams and other exam-related content in Google Search in India," she added.
Meanwhile the results are expected on time. An official of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has said that the re-test of the Class 12 Economics paper, held on April 25, nearly a month after it was leaked, will not delay declaration of results. The results are expected to be declared by May 30.
"The results will be declared on time as the evaluation is in advanced stage despite re-exam of economics paper. We have rigorously followed up with schools to send more evaluators than the required number," a senior Board official said.
There were also reports of the CBSE's Class 10 mathematics paper being leaked, but the board decided against its re-test, saying class 10 was just an "internal segment" of school education system.
The reports of leak of the CBSE papers had caused disappointment among students across the country last month. In Delhi, students held protests accusing the CBSE of negligence and demanded immediate action against the guilty.
According to Delhi Police, the class 12 economics paper was leaked on 23 March - three days before the scheduled date of the examination.
Investigators made arrests in several parts of the country in connection with the case, including in Jharkhand and Himachal Pradesh.
They claimed to have arrested the main conspirators behind the leak from Una in Himachal Pradesh. The three people were staffers of a school in the town. The results once declared will be available on cbse.nic.in.
