The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) will declare the 2013 Secondary School Certificate (SSC) general stream examination results on June 13, possibly by 8am. The results will be available on the following websites: www.gseb.org and www.gipl.net. A total of 9.81 lakh students appeared in the SSC general stream exams held in March this year.
Students can also obtain their results by calling the phone number 079-26851422 (in Ahmedabad), 079-30516061 (in Gandhinagar) or the toll free number 1800 233 5500. GSHSEB officials said mark-sheets of the examinees will be sent to the schools at a later date which will be announced soon.
Board officials said the results can also be obtained by SMS. Vodafone subscribers can send an SMS to 51103. A student has to send his seat number and the subscriber will be charged Rs 1 per SMS. For example, a student with the seat number A 727577 should SMS, SSC A 727577, to 51103.
Since the board has also decided to take into account the school performance of the examinees, this would be reflected in their marks this year. Marks obtained in the examination will be scaled down to 70 per cent while 30 per cent weightage will be given to school performance.
Last year, the board had declared the results on June 2. Of the 9.10 lakh students who had appeared in the exam last year, 6.29 lakh had passed.
