The Exam Results web portal
Institution: National Informatics Centre (NIC)
Ministry of Communications and Information Technology
Government of India
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2002
Summary: The practice of using the World Wide Web as a medium to publish examination results is not new, especially in countries with a high rate of Internet usage. The concept picked up in India during the past 4-5 years with the increased proliferation of the Web and its reach into the Indian homes and cyber cafes. The National Informatics Centre set up the Exam Results web portal, a single point source for results of various examinations conducted in India, containing also a lot of useful information.
Important announcements, both prior to the declaration of the result and upon its launch on the Net are posted on the web portal informing students, who can then access their results using a simple browser based interface by entering their roll number at the requisite place.
Impact: The examination results declared by NIC on its various servers over the past few years have received a large number of hits from students, teachers, parents, school authorities and other interested stakeholders. In 2005, 30 million hits were received on this portal during the declaration of the CBSE Results (class X & XII) alone. While 3,300,000 mark sheets were emailed into the individual students' mailboxes, 3,800,000 and 2,500,000 results were disseminated through IVRS and SMS respectively.
The whole concept of declaring Exam Results over the Net has done more to promote the Internet awareness and usage than most other conventional promotion strategies. The sensitivity of the issue and the anxiety factor associated with the very concept of Exam Results made the exercise popular even in areas known to be having very low Internet penetration.
