The results have been welcomed by the students and their families, who are relieved to finally get some closure. The CBSE board has also ensured that the process for applying for the photocopy of the answer sheets is simple. The board has also asked all schools to hand over the duplicate mark sheets and digital certificates to the students after the results are declared.
In conclusion, the CBSE board has done a commendable job this year of ensuring the success of their students and providing them with a secured process for getting their results.
