Nearly 112,07,986 students have appeared for the Class 12 exams, this year. The exam was held at 1,384 centres across the state.
Amidst strict measures at exam centres, BSEB exam this year witnessed a number of other changes as well. This year the Board had changed the exam pattern. From this academic year, 50% questions in the board exam were objective type. The pattern was changed both for class 12 and class 10 students.
In addition to this, the Board also made changes in the exam pattern for intermediate students. Few days after the exam began, the Board decided to fix the time duration for attempting objective paper. As per the new rule, students were allowed to attempt the paper in the first hour of the exam. The OMR sheet was collected back from the examinees at 11:15 by the examiners in the first sitting and at 3:15 pm in the second sitting.
BSEB had conducted counselling for the board examinees from 15 December to 21 December 2017. The counselling was done over the phone by subject-matter experts who answered to queries related to exam. The board had also provided different telephone numbers for different subjects in order to ensure students don’t miss the opportunity due to ‘busy line’.
