CBSE Class 10 result: Anxious students?
Students are anxious about their CBSE Class 10 results this year, owing to a number of reasons. The first one being the fact that CBSE Class 10 board exams were made mandatory after 7 years, during which the CCE format of examinations was used. The second reason why students may be concerned about their results can be the huge commotion that happened around the alleged leak of the Class 10 Maths paper. The Board had initially announced that students of Class 10 may have to appear for a re-exam of Maths. However, this decision on the Board’s part was later done away with.
