New Delhi: The results of the ICSE Class X and ISC Class XII examinations will be announced on May 6, two weeks earlier than previous years.
The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations, which conducts the exams, has for the first time used Live Ink Character Recognition (LICR) technology, which has helped in fast compilation of results.
"The Council will announce the results at 3 PM on May 6. We are the first Examination Board in the world to introduce usage of LICR technology," according to a statement by CISEC Chief Executive and Secretary Gerry Arathoon.
LICR captures and digitizes marks entered on the top-sheets of answer scripts, and instantly encrypts and transfers the captured data to the Council's cloud based servers directly from the evaluation centers.
"This significantly reduced the time required for compilation of results as the system automatically totals the marks awarded by the Examiners and also applies the question-paper rubrics, hence eliminating any possibility of manual totaling and manual rubric application errors," the statement said.
The results will be available on the career portal of the council and its website as well as through SMS.
To receive the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) or Indian School Certificate (ISC) results by SMS, the candidate will require to type ICSE or ISC followed by their seven digit unique ID code and send the message to 09248082883.
