The result of about 1600 new schools is still under process. The result of these schools will be declared in a week's time. Accordingly, the result of about 6,000 students of these schools and some other schools will be shown as "results later."

The class 12 exams earlier scheduled for May 4 this year were cancelled on June 6 in the wake of Covid surge.
The board said compartment exams will be conducted by the board between August 16 and September 15 and the dates would be announced soon. The following category of students will be allowed to appear in these tests -- students not satisfied with their assessment done based on the CBSE marking policy, private, second chance compartment candidates, students who have registered for the 2021 exam for improving their performance in only one subject, first chance compartment candidates.
Also, dispute settlement procedures will be available.
"Disputes regarding compilation of results will be referred to a committee constituted by the CBSE. A detailed process would soon be intimated to the students should they have any disputes in respect of their result preparations," the board said.
