Around 3.5 lakh students appeared in the class 12 exam this year which was postponed midway due to the steep rise in the coronavirus cases across the country.
The Punjab Board had decided not to conduct any press conference to announce class 12 results. The decision was taken in view of the situations arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Punjab PSEB Class 12 result was earlier delayed due to technical issues. It was supposed to be declared at 4 pm on July 20.
The board had earlier cancelled the pending class 12 exams. The PSEB said that for the cancelled papers, the evaluation will be done on the basis of the exams conducted already. The students will get the marks on the basis of the performance on their best three subjects, it added.
Notably, the Punjab Board also changed the passing criteria; now, students have to secure at least 20 per cent marks in practical and 33 per cent in the theory section to get a pass certificate.
