At last! The CBSE results for Class X and XII are out and a sigh of relief escapes the lips of parents, teachers, and students.

A total of 31,14,831 candidates had registered for both 10th and 12th CBSE Board Exam out of which 12,87,359 had appeared for CBSE XII Board Exam and 18,27,472 candidates for the Class X Board Exam.

On a whole, CBSE X results have shown a marked improvement of 4.4% over the last year, with the overall pass percentage being 91%. On the all India level, 13 students of CBSE class X have scored 499/500. Trivandrum hosted the highest pass percentage of 99.85% followed by Chennai with 99%.

Parents POV

Parents were surprised when the exam results for Class XII came out early on May 2, 2019, and claim to have spent sleepless nights for 3 days since then, as you can see in this video. Their long wait was over when the class X results were declared on May 6th at 2:15 pm by the CBSE.

Parents felt that children with potential can easily be recognized early as performers usually scored more than 80% in the school exams, thereby demonstrating their caliber. Such students should be motivated to strive harder and parent should goad them gently in a positive manner without applying too much pressure on them.

As for CBSE XII, 83.4% of the candidates who appeared for the exam cleared it successfully. Toppers gave full credit to the parents and teachers for supporting them fully and motivating them throughout their journey to the top.

The Secret of Success for Students

Almost all toppers attributed their success to meticulous planning, diligent hard work, and continuous practice. Working out practice papers from various online practice websites and portals helped them in the long run.

As Chennai topper Karthik Balaji puts it, “During the run-up to the exams, I was preparing for a few entrance examinations as well and this helped me keep in touch with all the subjects thoroughly. Before tackling any lesson, I made sure I was strong in the basic concepts required.” He also said that “If you pay attention in class, most of the work is done.”

Class X topper Gautham Raghuvanshi from Uttar Pradesh stated emphatically that “avoiding distractions from social media and gaming was the key to success”. His magic mantra was “Hard work, continuous practice, and talent“.

Success in CBSE exam comes with regular practice, dedication and hard work. It requires more perseverance and perspiration than intellect or intelligence. This has been constantly proved by the top performers who have excelled in these exams with consistent practice.

As the saying goes, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”. Students must work with determination and practice regularly to scale the summit of success in CBSE X and XII exams.

Hurdles Faced

The CBSE Class XII Physics and Accountancy paper had been reportedly difficult and lengthy and some parents had taken it up with the Board. Despite this, many students who worked hard got amazing grades in both subjects.

While we talk of the success stories, we should also take a look at the other side of the coin. Poor performers in Math and Science subjects are often filtered out in Class IX and asked to repeat the class or leave the school in order to ensure that the school gets a centum pass percentage.

According to Mr. Vasudevan, Principal of Prince Matriculation school, Chennai, these marching orders are given as “weak students find it very difficult to perform in Class IX if they do not score well in Class IX in important subjects.”  

So, in order to avoid such unpleasant situations, parents and teachers must start training students on core subjects like Maths and Science from class 6 onward with regular tests, practice questions, revisions, etc.

Utilize Performance Enhancing Sites

Online practice sites are one of the best ways to identify and improve weak areas and test your knowledge. The earlier these are recognized, the better.

Here at LetsPractise, we offer lesson worksheets, revision papers, past question papers and modular tests to help students to gauge and strengthen their academic skills.

The Board Exam of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is over. Now people are eagerly (or fearfully) awaiting the results, depending on how they performed.

It is time to see how much marks were earned for the labor.

Class XII Results

The wait is over for students who took the Board Exam for 12th standard. The results for the Class XII CBSE Board Exam were announced on Thursday, 2nd May 2019. This was within just 28 days of the exam.

If you were caught by surprise at this news, you aren’t the only one. Instead of notifying people a few days in advance, the Board only announced the release just an hour before it actually happened.

Click on this link to access the 2019 Class XII results on the official CBSE site:

  • Admit card ID

There are four boxes. Type in the information in the respective box and click ‘submit’. Your result should be displayed on the screen.

One reason results for 12th standard students have been announced quicker than those for the 10th standard is because of college applications and necessity to submit the 12th marks for admission into the university.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Feb 2, 2018, announced that all blackboards in India will be replaced by e-learning platforms by 2020. (Source: Times of India)

Astounding, isn’t it? Yet it is official. As the nation marches towards its Digital India initiative, E-Learning has achieved prime focus in the Budgetary session of 2018.

This was our dream. The Dream of all-digital teaching and E-learning enthusiasts.

What is E-Learning?

E-Learning is the learning system that uses electronic resources to impart education. It has done away with blackboards, chalks, and dusters and replaced them with computer screens, projectors, laptops or DVDs.

The IRJET – International Research Journal of Engineering and Technology – claims that the use of E-Learning can drastically cut time spent on classroom training by 52%. Similarly, the cost of classroom resources and staff training are also considerably slashed with e-learning.
The best aspects of E-Learning are that it is:

  • Self-paced
  • Open to inquiry
  • Always accessible
  • Ideal for practice

Lets Practise has been an early proponent of E-Learning.

Lets Practise aims at empowering educators and students to harness the potential of E-Learning effectively. Towards this, we have built a huge repository of over 4.5 Lakh Questions, that are mapped to the IGCSE, CBSE, ICSE and State Board formats.

Let’s look at what this means for all of us?

1. Schools will undergo a major transformation in the very methodology of teaching with the introduction of Operation Blackboard. Smart Classrooms and Virtual boards will revamp School Education by energizing to suit the needs of the next generation.

  • The launch of RISE-Revitalization of infrastructure and systems in education with estimated target spend of at Rs.1 lakh crore till 2022.
  • Operation Blackboard – Replacement of blackboards in all schools with e-learning platforms by 2020.

2. Fund allocation for schools has been increased and the quality of education is to be improved. This is to be achieved by treating education in a holistic and non-segmented manner from nursery to high school.

  • Budgetary allocation for literacy and education has gone up by 7.86%.
  • The Indian government aims at non-segmented education for pre-nursery to Class X. This will replace the SSA- Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and RMSA-Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan which are the present initiatives of the government.

3. The Digital Learning Initiative will bring in fresh air into our education system with its modern methods. Online learning is going to be an integral part of the student’s academics and this will widen the horizons of the student’s knowledge.

  • Operation Blackboard could come as a blessing for our children as e-learning platforms are much more student-connected, user-friendly and informative.
  • The concept of non-segmented education too is a huge step in ensuring uniformity of education across the step. It is to be welcomed and encouraged as it will relieve students of the pressure of studies and competition.

Apart from this, Smart Classrooms are full of fun and great for team activities. They are the right way to save precious ecological resources like wood and paper and are also easy to maintain. With such enormous benefits, Smart Classrooms are the right tools to empower the Indian education system.

LetsPractise welcomes this initiative of the Government of India. We are confident that with the push from the highest levels and adequate budgeting, we can achieve the lofty aims of our forefathers and nation builders. Education for all.
