"The Council will announce the results at 3 PM on May 29," a statement by CISEC Chief Executive and Secretary Gerry Arathoon said. The results will be made available on the career portal of the Council and its website, as well as through SMS.

The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations, which conducts the exams, will introduce a DigiLocker facility to store digitally signed certificates and mark sheets. In another first, the Council has also made a provision for candidates to apply for rechecking of marks.

ICSE and ISC candidates will now also be able to have digital versions of their mark sheets and certificates for accessing them anytime and anywhere.

"Unlike the old practice when the candidates had to download the scanned image of the hard copy of mark sheet, all they have to do now is to open an account with http://digilocker.gov.in and give their mobile number and follow the steps thereafter," Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) Chief Executive and Secretary Gerry Arathoon said.

From this year, the council will also make digitally signed copies of the statement of marks and the pass certificates available to candidates via Digi locker in addition to the traditional hard copies, Arathoon explained.

Also digitally signed migration certificates will be made available to ISC candidates.

"The signed documents can be mailed in the same way the hard documents are presented for professional/career reasons. The documents will be stored in Digital Locker (Digi locker) of each candidate. Digital Locker is a service that provides dedicated personal electronic space in a government-owned public cloud storage where a candidate keeps his/her documents forever," he explained.

CISCE has partnered with the department of electronics and information technology to extend the Digi locker facility to Class 10(ICSE) and 12(ISC) examinations candidates in affiliated schools.

The service will be introduced from this year itself. Aadhaar card numbers of the candidate will be necessary for uploading the documents - registration certificates, admit cards, mark sheets and pass certificates on the system.

"This is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modis mission for a digital India, and we know it will be popular among the students as the present young generation is far more tech savvy than you and me," Arathoon said.
