New Delhi, 22 July 2021 – The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has extended the deadline for finalizing class 12 results from 22nd July to 25th July 2021. Announcing the same, Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj informed that the teachers involved in the result preparation process were under stress. Therefore, to avoid committing mistakes, the Board had to push the deadline 3 days ahead of the scheduled time.
According to the latest update, to meet the deadline and help schools, CBSE had even kept its offices open on 21st July, a gazetted holiday (Eid-ul-Adha).
The Board has also conveyed that the results of the schools, where moderation is still left to be completed, will be declared separately.

On Wednesday evening, the Central Board shared a notice with school principals stating, “As of now, it has been observed that schools are finalizing their data with full capacity. However, as the last date is approaching fast, and teachers involved in result preparation are under stress, getting panicky and committing mistakes and sending requests to CBSE to rectify these.”
The notice further read “CBSE is well aware of the time constraints and problems faced by the schools and teachers. Accordingly, the CBSE has decided to extend the last date from July 22 to July 25. Further, it is requested that the schools may continue to work towards compiling the result by completing the moderation to avoid any last-minute rush.”
CBSE Result 2021 – Reason for Deadline Extension
On 1st May 2021, CBSE had released a special marking scheme/policy for students of Class 10 and 12. According to it, the results of Class 10 will be evaluated based on the students’ performance in unit tests, half-yearly examination, and pre-board examination conducted by respective schools.
For class 12 students, CBSE has set up a 40:30:30 marking scheme:
- 30% marks will be allotted to the annual exams of Class 10
- 30% marks will be for the annual exams of Class 11, and
- 40% marks will be for the Class 12 pre-board examination
With this new evaluation formula introduced this year, teachers responsible for the result preparation have repeatedly requested CBSE to allocate an extended period so that they can release the accurate result of students.
CBSE Result 2021 – More Updates
For the second time in a row, CBSE will not be releasing the merit list of students for the Class 10 and 12 results this year. This decision has been taken due to the ongoing pandemic and the changes in the evaluation criteria. If the circulated reports stand correct, CBSE may take another 8 to 10 days to process the results and finally declare them.
