The Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) announced the results of Class 12 board examinations on Monday evening. The Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) Class 12 results can now be checked at the board's website: pseb.ac.in
The PSEB had earlier announced the results of Class 12 board examinations on its official website pseb.ac.in but soon deactivated the results link, which led to utter confusion among anxious students.
The board even changed the earlier message of “Senior Secondary (10+2) Examination Provisional Result March 2018 NOW AVAILABLE” to “Senior Secondary (10+2) Examination Provisional Result March 2018 WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON”.
Issuing a clarification later, the PSEB said, ''Earlier released on the website was withdrawn due to some technical reason. Now it is available on the website.''
Several users had taken to social media to question this. "It is removed by PSEB or some technical error?" wrote one person on Twitter (handle: @harmanjeetpreet)
The examinations for Class 12 were held between February 28 to March 24. The results were declared after a long delay owing to the board conducting the tests of a few subjects which were held from April 17 to April 20.
This year, a total of 327,159 students appeared in the Class 12 exams. Last year, the passing percentage for Class 12 students was 65.33.
