Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Chairman Vineet Joshi has said that the Class X results would be published earlier from this academic year.

CBSE was under much pressure to advance the Class X results as it were often published towards the fag end of the time allotted for admission to higher secondary schools and other pre-university courses.

Mr. Joshi said efforts would be made to advance the results by a couple of weeks to declare it by the middle of May.

Besides, a request will be made to the government of States like Kerala to extend the last date for submitting the applications for Plus-Two in higher secondary schools.
