Nagpur: The evaluation work of SSC and HSC papers has been completed in the Nagpur division, following which marks have been sent to Pune headquarters.
The division, which comprises Nagpur, Wardha, Gondia, Bhandara, Chandrapur, and Gadchiroli districts, has so far been on track for all board-related work.
A senior board official said, “Teachers put in a lot of effort along with board employees. Evaluations were completed as per the timeline even though exams were delayed this year. All the major work has been done from the Nagpur division, and now we are in midst of the process which we call ‘reporting’.”
As per the official, this is the phase when the Pune HQ informs about anomalies in marks or any other query. The divisional board then has to resolve all those queries and then all that remains is to wait for the declaration of the results.
The official said, “Once all the divisional boards submit their marks and all issues are resolved, then a board meeting is held at Pune. The status of result preparation is reviewed and once completed, the board officials discuss possible dates for the result declaration.” These dates, or dates, are then reviewed by the education minister/principal secretary (education), he added.
“Once the minister approves the results date, we go ahead and officially announce the same,” said the official.
Unlike CBSE, the state education board always announces results date in advance through the official channel.
When asked about the results timeline, the official said it should be in the first week of June. “See it could be earlier too, as everything depends on how fast data is compiled by the Pune HQ from all other divisional boards. But it seems to be that we are looking at the first week of June for HSC and then SSC a week or so later,” said the official.
