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 the fast compilation of results.
“The Council will announce the results at 3 p.m. on May 6. We are the first Examination Board in the world to introduce the usage of LICR technology,” says a spokesperson of CISEC.
“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 totalling and manual rubric application errors,” said the same spokesperson.
LICR captures and digitises 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 centres.
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 typing ICSE or ISC followed by their seven digit unique ID code and send the message to 09248082883.
