WBBSE 12th Result 2020: Addressing the apprehensions of the class 12th students and their parents regarding the announcement of the results, the state education minister Mr. Partha Chatterjee intimated that the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) might be declared after the lockdown is lifted. He stated that the final date for publication of the results for the WBSE Madhyamik Exams would be fixed only after the lockdown in the state is completely lifted and normalcy resumes.
The Hon’ble minister addressed the media and stated that the WBBSE would be publishing the results for the West Bengal Secondary Education, i.e., the Madhyamik Exams after the situation in the state normalizes. He added that conducting the pending exams for class 12th students is the top priority of the West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE). There are two separate higher education boards in the state of West Bengal. The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education is responsible for conducting examinations for students of class 9th and class 12th, while the West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education organizes the examination for students of class 11th and 12th.

Partha Chatterjee further added that the evaluation process of the answer sheets is ongoing in the state, and once that is completed, the results will be declared. His statement read, “The sorting, evaluation process of papers are going on the full swing after the exams were completed in February and the rest of the job won’t take much of time once normalcy returns. We will decide accordingly.”
When asked about the remaining exams of class 10th, which could not be conducted due to lockdown, the state education minister added that higher secondary examination for two papers could not be conducted because of the implementation of the lockdown, and these exams will be conducted after 10th June 2020.
On the matter of the plight of the higher education students and the exams, the minister added that the academic calendar of various state universities and the colleges affiliated with them would be decided by the respective universities after consultation with the higher education department of the state. The issue pertains to the fate of more than 19 lakh students who are presently studying in these educational institutions. Mr. Partha Chatterjee concluded his statement by saying that these students can expect a firm decision on their issues very soon. Though, in the meantime, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has released its academic calendar and exam guidelines.
It is pertinent to mention that the calendar and guidelines are only suggestive in nature, and it is entirely the prerogative of the university to conduct the examinations and classes as per their present infrastructure.
