The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has urged all school education boards in the country to declare the Class 12 Board exam results by May 31 so that the admission procedure to IITs is not delayed.
In a meeting with 37 state education boards and the Central Board of Senior Education (CBSE), the ministry agreed to adopt several measures, including a standardized question pattern and marking system and a common code for roll numbers.
CBSE and IITs had not received class 12 results from three state boards this year—Odisha Council of Higher Secondary Education, Mizoram Board of School Education and Tripura Board of Secondary Education—by the third week of June. The scores from open schooling boards from Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and the CBSE International Board were also not ready.
Without class 12 marks, CBSE was unable to release the JEE(Main) rankings which is essential for the joint seat allocation process by IITs, NITs and other such institutes.
