CBSE results out today

Gulf News

More than 2,000 students from 24 schools in the UAE will receive the results of their key Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) today.

Counsellors will open a phone hotline at the Indian High School for inquiries from students needing advice on their next move.

A letter from Rama Sharma, a public relations officer of the CBSE in New Delhi to the counselling centre at the Indian High School reads: "The tele-counselling will start from the day the grades are announced and will continue for a fortnight. Queries should relate to career guidance, choice of subjects and psychological problems."

Ashok Kumar, principal of the school, said: "Students in the UAE get impatient when the CBSE announces results. That's when counsellors step in."

Kumar said students with below-average results often want to know what their future options are.

The results will be made available online at
