Contrary to reports, Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) won’t announce the result for matric board exam today. According to reports in several regional newspapers, the result for Bihar Board Matric exam 2017 will be declared in the coming two-three days. The board will most likely report the result declaration date today. The further delay in the result could be attributed to the Board’s last minute decision to award grace marks to students who fail in one or two papers.
The board had sent the proposal to award grace marks to the state government and got approval on June 14. According to the proposal, the board will award grace marks up to 8 marks to students. Also, students who miss a division by a couple marks will be awarded grace marks up to 5 marks.
It is relied upon that the choice to award grace marks would help support the pass percentage this year. There are theories that the matric result this year is poor, almost similar to intermediate results and hence this step has been taken by the board to enhance the overall performance. A year ago, just 44.46% students had passed the Bihar Board matric exams.
There are additionally reports that the board, this time, is conducting physical verification of toppers so as to avoid the sort of fiasco seen amid the intermediate results. However, there has been no official confirmation in such manner from the board yet.
