Class 12 CBSE Results | Results To Be Declared On 28 May; Moderation Policy To Continue

The recent update on Press Trust of India confirms that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) results of Class 12 will be declared on Sunday, i.e. May 28.


CBSE chairman RK Chaturvedi shared, “Results will be declared on Sunday. We will follow the moderation policy as enshrined in rule number 59 of examination bylaws of CBSE.” 

The board has also said that it will continue with the moderation policy as directed by the Delhi High Court.

Here’s how students can check their results:

> Log on to official websites –,,

> Look for the tab “Senior School Certificate Examinations (Class 12) Results 2017 (All Regions)”

> Enter your roll and school number.

> Take a print out for future reference.

Earlier, there were reports that the result could be delayed due to the ongoing mark moderation policy issue. The board had planned to approach the Supreme Court against Delhi HC’s decision, but was advised against it by the legal counsel.

What is marks moderation policy? How can it impact CBSE 12th Results declaration?

According to moderation policy, evaluators are asked to revise marks of some students higher based on the set of questions they received during their exams and the perception of how tough their paper was, says a Hindustan Times report.

So if the board tested students on three different sets of questions papers for the same exam, a student who may have scored 80 percent on the question paper viewed to be the toughest could have her marks revised higher. Soon after the exams were held this year, the government said the practice will be discontinued with immediate effect for several boards, including CBSE.

Separately, evaluators increase marks for some students whose scores are just below the passing line, by giving what are called ‘grace marks’.

CBSE Class 10th Results 2017 are expected to come out on June 2.

This year, nearly 11 lakh students appeared for the CBSE 12th exams while close to 9 lakh students appeared for the 10th exams.


We wish all the students all the best for CBSE Class 12th Results 2017.
