NIOS Result 2020: Students Ask for Re-declaration of Results as Marksheets Show Absent for Exams that Didn’t Happen

While NIOS result 2020 for classes 10 and 12 were declared last week, dissatisfied students and parents ask for a re-declaration of results

New Update

NIOS result 2020 for classes 10 and 12 have been declared by the National Institute of Open Schooling. However, scores of students and parents claim that there are “mistakes” that have been made while declaring the results the board will have to rectify. Others have been demanding for the board to retract and re-declare the results as well.


“NIOS board should again declare results for April 2020 examinations. How can anyone give us marks on the basis others performance this is total injustice,” says Tauseef Akram.

Problems with the NIOS Result 2020 According to Parents and Students

Students claim that in their marksheets, “ABS” or absent has been displayed for practical examinations that could not be conducted due to the lockdown in view of the Coronavirus pandemic. “How one can be absent, if there are no exams held? I got absent in 2 subjects. Also due to the server issues I was not able to upload my assignments. And they have given me absent there too. Please look into these issues. I have mailed about these issues too,” said Yakin Diwan to DataQuest.


The same claim has been corroborated by several students and parents with marksheets and other documents. “I m 10th class student. NIOS declared that I have passed in four subject but in data entry it shows SYC and ABS in practical. NIOS has not conducted the practical due to lockdown because my practical was on 23rd March. How can they show absent?” said Ayush Gautam.

“They have not conducted practicals and they have given me Absent remarks on my marksheet for practical. This is so unfair and truly disappointing,” says Shaikh Saba, another student who is facing the same problem.

“There is a big blunder where a lot of centers have not put the PCP marks. The students are assessed for practicals based on PCP marks. The practical and PCP share 50% weightage. Even if a student gets zero in PCP, and gets 70% in practical (example in painting if a students gets 70% of 35 that is 50% weightage i.e. 24.5 marks) he/she would pass. My son has been marked ABS in two subjects because the center did not submit the score,” says Dr Darshan Trivedi.

What Students Can Do About Their NIOS Result 2020

Students said to DataQuest that they will submit formal applications to the main NIOS centre regarding “errors” that have been made in the NIOS result 2020. NIOS, however, has still not responded on the matter.
