New Delhi: The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), which conducts Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Class 10 and Indian School Certificate (ISC) Class 12 annual exams, will be announced on May 6, two weeks earlier than previous years, officials said.
The results will be declared online and can be accessed from the official CISCE website cisce.org.
"The Council will announce the results at 3 PM on May 6", according to a statement by CISEC Chief Executive and Secretary Gerry Arathoon.
Click on the live link 'ISC' on the website. When a new window opens, the candidates have to go to "Reports" and then on "Results" tab to check their scores. The candidates should take a print out of the scorecard for future reference.
The results will also be available via SMS. To receive the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) or Indian School Certificate (ISC) results by SMS, the candidate will require to type ICSE or ISC followed by their seven digit unique ID code and send the message to 09248082883.
The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations, which conducts the exams, has for the first time used Live Ink Character Recognition (LICR) technology, which has helped in fast compilation of results.
"We are the first Examination Board in the world to introduce usage of LICR technology," Gerry Arathoon said.
LICR captures and digitizes marks entered on the top-sheets of answer scripts, and instantly encrypts and transfers the captured data to the Council's cloud based servers directly from the evaluation centers.
"This significantly reduced the time required for compilation of results as the system automatically totals the marks awarded by the Examiners and also applies the question-paper rubrics, hence eliminating any possibility of manual totaling and manual rubric application errors," the statement said.
Last year the results for ICSE and ISC exams were declared on May 18. Over 1.5 lakh students had appeared for both the exams in 2015.
Total number of boys who passed Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Class 10 in 2015 was 86,551, while their number was 36,830 in Indian School Certificate (ISC) Class 12.
The pass percentage for ICSE 2015 was 98.49 and for ISC 2015 it was 96.28 percent.
The council offered 61 subjects in class 12 last year. For class 10 the number of subjects offered was 52.
According to the National Achievement Survey, conducted by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), CISCE outperformed other boards.
In the year, 2014 some of the teachers from the Council's affiliated school also bagged the National Award for teachers.
