GSEB HSC 12th Arts and Commerce Results 2020 are expected to be released by Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, GSHSEB or as is commonly called, GSEB. 12th science and class 10th or SSC examination results have already been announced by the Gujarat Board. An announcement regarding the dates of HSC Arts and Commerce or General is expected shortly.
The past trends suggested a marginal gap in declaring the 10th and General HSC results. The release of results will lessen the uncertainty regarding the possible dates. An official declaration of the date, however, is yet to be done. Gujarat officials, when contacted, suggested that the results are likely to be announced on or before June 15.
A Gujarat official confirmed that “Official notice would be released on the website, once the date is confirmed”. But there hasn't been any confirmation or declaration of date so far. Experts have pointed out that the results are expected to be released before the admissions begin to various universities in Gujarat.
Passing Criteria and Grace Marks for GSEB 12th Arts & Commerce Results
To be declared pass, GSEB requires students to have an aggregate and a minimum of 33% passing marks in each subject. An option of appearing for Supplementary exams, conducted by Gujarat Board is presented for students who fail to achieve the passing marks.
The decision regarding the awarding of grace marks lies with the exam board and is highly subjective. If a student is failing by 2 to 3 marks, he or she is likely to be awarded grace marks to ensure the passing grade. The 33% passing marks includes both the internal and external examinations conducted.
Delay in declaration of results
As per the observable trend, the Gujarat, GSEB HSC Arts and commerce results are normally the last in the state to be declared.
Normally, Science and the 12th General results are declared about 20 days apart. Last year, the GSEB HSC Science results were released on May 9th and the Arts and Commerce results on May 25.
Parents and students should note that results for most of the boards have been delayed due to the lockdowns amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
