Every year during the month of May and June when the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declares the results of class 10 and 12 examinations, parents and students spend anxious moments checking different websites for results.
These results are declared in phases according to the various regions of CBSE, i.e. Delhi, Guwahati, Allahabad, Chennai, Ajmer and Panchkula. Class XII results were released recently and those of class X are expected any time now.
Information on class X results can also be accessed through the mobile by IVR (interactive voice response) or SMS.
To help parents and students get instant intimation about their results on their mobile phones CBSE has tied up with different government departments and service providers to give information on mobiles.
Results by IVR
Class X results can be accessed when they are announced globally through IVR, a technology that allows a computer to interact with humans through the use of voice and keypad inputs, by dialing 91 – 11 — 24357270, a number set National Informatics Center (NIC).
Some dedicated mobile numbers for accessing results are: 55456068 (Idea), 1255536 (BSNL), 56735 (Vodafone), 5550099 (Aircel), 12971 (Tata Indicom) and 505242411/53030815 (RCom).
However, these services will not be toll free and users will have to bear normal telephone charges. Results with subject wise marks would be conveyed in about 30 seconds through IVR.
Results by SMS
Students can also get their results through SMS by typing cbse10
Also, if students want to get results from their mobile service providers, they can send the SMS to 52001 for MTNL, 57766 for BSNL, 56735 for Vodafone, 5800001 for Aircel, 55456068 for Idea, 51234 for RCom and 582821 for Tata Indicom.
