Board of Secondary Education Odisha (BSE Odisha) has denied media reports suggesting that matric results will be announced on May 20. Board President Dr. Jahan Ara Begum told NDTV that,"till date we haven't announced any specific date, last week's press meet was held to clarify these rumors and Secretary, BSE said we will publish the results in the third week (sic),." Several media outlets have quoted the Board President saying that the matric results will be released on May 20.
Dr. Jahan Ara Begum has sternly denied the reports. "I haven't given any such information to anybody. It's unfortunate to associate my name with fake information and mislead people," she said.
Last year the matric result was declared on May 7 and 76.23% students had cleared the exam. The pass percentage among students of open schools was 41.93%. 36 schools in the State had registered zero result last year.
BSE Odisha will declare the result on the official portal orissaresults.nic.in. Result updates can be checked at results.gov.in as well.
Reportedly, more than 5 lakh students had appeared for the matric exam in the State this year.
After the matric result, Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) Odisha, which conducts the class 12/ +2 exam in the State, will announce the board results for arts, science and commerce streams. Last year the CHSE +2 results were declared within 11 days after the matric result.
