On Monday, a fake message went viral on social media claiming that Class XII (general stream) results will be published on May 19. This caused so much confusion that the GSHSEB was forced to issue a statement clarifying the message was fake.
The GSHSEB stated that the dates of results, when finalized, will be posted on the GSHSEB’s official website.
In the press release, the board authorities have urged the people including teachers and school authorities to not fall prey to such ‘misinformation’.
On May 17, the board declared the results of Class XII (Science) students.
An advertisement by the board about the declaration of results on Sunday was published recently in newspapers. “Some miscreants photoshopped a copy, changed the date to May 19 in the advertisement, and replaced Class XII Science stream with Class XII general stream. This message was circulated in social media today, creating a lot of chaos,” said a source in the GSHSEB.
School authorities, teachers and education department officials were on Monday flooded with calls from anxious students and parents who wanted to verify the authenticity of the social media message, the source added.
The state education board on Sunday declared Class XII (science) stream results with a pass percentage of 71.34%. Over 1.6 lakh students appeared for the exams. The board exam results have been delayed this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown situation.
