Hattrick of being the First among Boards to Declare Results

With today’s result, the Bihar Board will become the fastest educational board to announce results in 2021. This would be the third year in a row that the BSEB is announcing the results first. Not only the BSEB inter results which will be announced soon, but BSEB matric results too are also expected this month.

The exams were held on schedule for over 13.05 lakh students despite the pandemic. This year, because of the pandemic schools across the country have remained shut and hence BSEB has introduced several changes in the exam pattern including offering choices or alternatives for every question asked in the exam, as well as, holding exams on the syllabus curtailed by about 30 per cent.

Passing Marks, Scrutiny Process

To pass, students need to get 33 per cent marks overall and pass each subject individually. Even if a student fails in one subject and has appeared for six subjects the marks for the additional subject will be added. Further, the board has a grace marks policy under which if a student fails in one subject by 8 percent or less or in two subjects by not more than 4 percent in each, he/ she will be given the needed marks and promoted to the next class.

For those unhappy with results, the Bihar Board will open scrutiny application process at biharboardonline.bihar.gov.in. The window for the same will be available from April 1 to 7 and a fee of Rs 70 will be applicable per subject for scrutiny.

Last year, BSEB also revised the marking scheme for intermediate exams in 2021. As per a previous statement, if a student fails in a compulsory subject, the marks secured in the additional subject will be considered for preparing the result. This scheme will help students to score an aggregate pass mark. There are a total of 5 papers in the board exam including two compulsory languages paper- Hindi and English.

In commerce, 93.26 per cent passed while in science, and arts, the pass percentage was 77.39 per cent and 81.44 per cent, respectively in 2020.

Whether or not BSEB is able to continue with its winning streak of increasing the pass percentage, would be worth a watch.
