.........BHUBANESWAR: CBSE XII results announced by the Board on Sunday was marked by confusion and resentment among students in the city. While the results of many students had been withheld, there was no official at CBSE’s Regional Office here nor anybody took calls of the aggrieved parents or the media.
While the CBSE office here usually remains open on Sundays during national-level entrance examinations, the absence of personnel on the premises on the day the results were announced was unreasonable.
“When at least 70 students of our school informed that their results were withheld, we tried to contact the Board office, but there was no response,” Public Relations Officer of a City-based school said. Sources in the CBSE said the results of those students, who had changed their ‘optional’ subjects a few days before registration, were withheld. “It takes time for the Board to update the subjects that a student will be appearing. However, the delay was restricted and all the results duly published by late evening,” a CBSE staffer said. There was a mild chaos at some schools where students and their parents held the administration and CBSE responsible for the delay in publication of results.
