"The failed student without getting disheartened or wasting any more time should immediately sit down to prepare for the Supplementary Examinations, which are scheduled to begin from last week of May," BoSE president DP Nanda said.
"We shall also take care to publish the supplementary exam results by the June-end so that the students without wasting a year can take admissions in Plus II classes or any other post-matriculate courses in the ongoing academic year," he said.
At least 15 unsuccessful students had committed suicide within two days of publication of matriculation results last year.
"We make an appeal to all those students, who do not find their names in the successful candidates' list, to take the best use of the exam reformation system and do not get carried away emotionally as failing in one exam is not the end of everything," Nanda said.
The students finally get their matriculation results today from the printed booklets available in 40 selected High Schools, besides at the four Zonal offices and the Board head office in Cuttack.
