After announcing the class 12 (inter) results on March 16, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is now set to announce its class 10 or Bihar Board matric results. The board was earlier expected to release the class 10 results by March-end, however, the class 10 results were delayed due to re-examination of mathematic paper in the Motihari district.
The Bihar Board 10th mathematics question paper was allegedly leaked on social media platforms before the exam on February 17. The exam will now be conducted on March 24 and 25 across all centres of the Motihari district. BSEB has already completed the evaluation process of all the answer scripts of class 10 or matric board exams, barring for these. Hence, it is likely that BSEB 10th result will be out by April first week.
