From : Sonal Kalra (NIC HQ) with inputs from Vinod Taneja (UP), Ajay Chahal (HP), N.K.Prasad (Bihar) and Deepak Bhargava (Rajasthan)


In the decades spanning 60's and 70's, exam results, especially those of the State School Boards meant students and parents spending sleepless nights waiting for the early morning arrival of the `Gazette' carrying the result. With the change in the pattern of Education Boards all over the Country, the concepts of +2 results and entrance exams for various professional courses came into fore, not only enhancing the number and magnitude of examinations but also bringing tough competition in the academic scenario. Till a few years back, it was a common sight to see the students thronging notice boards trying to find their roll number in the list of successful candidates.

The emergence of Internet has seemed to transform the above scenario as it has made it possible for students to check their Exam Result in the comfort of their own homes, through the click of a mouse. Like past many years, this year too saw NIC providing the School Board through WWW, Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS), Short Message Service (SMS) and Email. The entire activity was huge, in terms of magnitude of resources involved as well as the number of target audience. For the CBSE results alone (Class X and XII), the Results website of NIC received over 26.7 million hits while 7.5 Million results were delivered.

In addition as large as 3.3 lakh marksheets were delivered to students in their individual mail boxes while large number of consolidated school wise results were also delivered to different schools on their email. Around 3.8 lakh results were also delivered through IVRS systems while 2.1 lakh results were delivered through SMS. To guage the response of students, teachers, parents and all others who checked out the School Board results in various States on the Internet this year, we asked the Informatics Correspondents at Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan to give us the first hand account of the `result-experience' in their state. This is what Vinod Taneja, Ajay Chahal, N.K Prasad and Deepak Bhargava reported...
