Schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Bangalore were taken unawares with the board announcing results of Class X for Chennai Region late on Monday evening.
In fact, many of the school authorities got to know of the announcement only after queries by the media and said they were not intimated earlier by the board.
However, as the consolidated results were sent to the school email IDs, school authorities said access to results was easy.
Most schools in the city were jubilant once they got the results as their students had performed well. CBSE has a system of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), taking into account the performance in Class IX and Class X in scholastic and co-curricular areas.
