Board examination results have been delayed across the country due to Coronavirus pandemic. The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is the first one to declare the result for 10 board examination.

“Bihar board became the first board to declare the results of class X and XII in the country as most of the boards have either not completed the examination or could not complete the evaluation of answer sheets because of the lockdown enforced in the country to contain the spread of Coronavirus infection,” said Bihar School Examination Board Chairman Anand Kishore. Bihar Education Minister Krishnandan Prasad Verma declared the results.
