The Bihar School Education Board (BSEB) has become the first among all the state and central educational boards to have conducted the board exams already. Most of the boards had postponed their exam dates because of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as curtailed the syllabus by about 30 per cent to make up for the loss of instructional hours. Schools across India have remained shut for the most part of the year as part of several measures adopted to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. BSEB, however, went ahead with its schedule that too without any syllabus cut.
As one of the pro-students measure, BSEB had offered 100 per cent choice in the exam. Implying, for every question, students had an alternative question to chose from. Every question had a choice. This was expected to help students who would not have been able to complete the entire syllabus. Now, when most boards are yet to start their exams, Bihar Board is ready to announce the result.
The evaluation process for the BSEB intermediate or class 12 exams has been completed while for matric or class 10 exams, the evaluation process is still on. As per sources, Bihar Board will declare the BSEB inter result between March 25 to the first week of April. The BSEB matric result 2021 can be expected in the first or second week of April, as per the sources.
Over 16.8 lakh candidates have registered to appear for the class 10 exam this year of which 8,46,663 are boys and 8,37,803 girl students. Concluded on February 24, matric exams were held across 1525 exam centres.
For intermediate, over 13.50 lakh students had registered of which 6,46,540 are females and 7,03,693 are male students. BSEB class 12 exams were held across 1,473 exam centres, as per the Board.
To pass the exam, students need to score 30 per cent in the subject as well as overall. In case a student fails to pass in the main subject then marks of the additional subject will be added while creating the result if the student had passed in an additional subject.

In inter, Neha Kumari, topped in science stream with 95.2 per cent marks, Sudhanshu Narayan Choudhary and Kausar Fatma both got highest marks in commerce stream with 95.2 per cent, and Sakshy Kumari bagged the top spot in arts stream with 94.80 per cent marks.
