Delay in ICSE Results for 2017 Cause Panic among Students

After the fuss created by some social media reports claiming that ICSE Results for exams held in 2017 will be released on May 15, Council for Indian School Certificate Examination came out with an official statement. It claimed, “Forty-eight hours prior to declaration of ICSE and ISC 2017 Examination Results, a notification regarding the same will be put up on the Council’s website”

The matter came to light when many parents and students panicked over reports that the result will be announced at 11 in the morning. To confirm these reports, many phone calls were made to the school administration, teachers as well as principal.

Students of Shri Ram School, Moulsari had to return disheartened from their school assembly hall after a long wait. While they waited for their results from 8 AM, a teacher announced that upon contacting the council, they learnt about postponement of the results. Students and parents were equally agitated. One of them said, “I’ve never been this apprehensive about anything before, and the uncertainty with the dates doesn’t help. And it’s not only me. Even my parents are pretty scared about the results, especially since no one knows when they will actually be declared. The mental preparation required before the results simply can’t be done without warning.”

Similarly, a parent was also annoyed at the confusion, Manju Sharma said, “It is always better to declare the date of the result a few days before the announcement so that students are prepared by the announcement day.”

ICSE Results for both class 10 and class 12 are expected to be released simultaneously. The exams were delayed due to assembly elections in 5 states hence, the delay in result announcement. ICSE results were out on May 6 last year which was a little earlier than previous years.
