The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) will declare the class 12 or Higher Secondary results on July 22, Thursday. The exams were cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic and subsequent lockdown in the state. The students will be evaluated on the basis of their performance in the past three academic years.
