Bhubaneswar: The results of the Higher Secondary Education (HSE)-2019, conducted by the Board of Secondary Education Odisha, are likely to be published in the third week of the current month, according to sources.
While the results were to be announced in the first week of May, it has been delayed due to the Cyclone Fani that hit the Odisha coast on May 3.
The uncertainty over publication of results have only added to the woes of students and their parents who were earlier fed up with leaking of question papers in social medias during the course of examinations.
According to the BSE Secretary Hazra, it has not been possible to upload marks in computer due to disruption in electricity caused by the cyclonic storm. Similarly, unavailability of internet has posed a problem in publication of results.
It may be noted that a total of 5,87,720 students, including Sanskrit Madhyama and State Open School Certificate pupils, have appeared for the Matric examinations, conducted from February 22 to March 8.
