GUWAHATI, June 3 - As the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the results for the Class X board exams today, candidates and their guardians in the region had a harrowing time to check their scores online due to technical glitches in the website which was restored only after 4 pm.
However, till the time of filing of this report, the regional office in Guwahati could not provide the region-specific statistics pertaining to the region, which include the eight north-eastern states.
The statistics that the Guwahati office could provide was the overall pass percentage of the region which was 65.53, the lowest among all the regions. The CBSE has ten regions - Delhi, Chennai, Guwahati, Ajmer, Panchkula, Allahabad, Patna, Bhubaneswar, Thiruvananthapuram and Dehradun. Thiruvananthapuram has fared best by registering a pass percentage of 99.85 per cent.
Results for the other regions were declared at 1 pm.
In Guwahati and other states of the region, the students and guardians struggled to log on to the website to get their scores. There was no prior intimation given as to when the results would be declared.
�We were really tensed since morning as we could not log on to the website. We told many of our family members to try to get the results through the website, but all failed. It was only around 4.30 pm that we could get it,� said a student of KV, Maligaon.
A guardian of another candidate alleged that even the CBSE helpline was not working. Officials at the Guwahati regional office of the board said it could be due to the huge traffic that the website went defunct.
A similar crisis was witnessed when the board had declared its Class XII results a few days back.
