Bihar Board BSEB 10th Result 2020: New measures adopted by BSEB have resulted in the increase of pass percentage and decrease in cheating by students, said board chairman.
Bihar Board 10th Result 2020: The Bihar School Examination Board, or BSEB, declared the Class 10th result on May 26.
Anand Kishore, Chairman, Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) said in an online press conference that “the results were released on time due to the extensive use of technology. In the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we used digital media to expedite the process".
Mr Kishore attributed the successful conduct of exams and declaration in results to both the extensive use of technology and numerous safety measures adopted by the BSEB. The overall pass percentage is 80.59%.
BSEB had used enhanced security measures, including answer sheets with photos of candidates, barcodes and 10 sets of question papers, in the BSEB 2020 Class 10 exams for the candidates so that the exam process is transparent, Mr Anand Kishore said. This year, the BSEB set a new record by having results pending for just four candidates. Last year, the number was below 200 - then a record - but before 2018, there would be thousands of such cases.
