Till year 2016, CBSE allowed general public to download CBSE results for class X and XII on the basis of school affiliation number and school code alone. However, this was a clear threat to privacy of individuals who appeared for the exams. This also compromised a school’s privacy. After complaints from students and schools alike, CBSE has modified the school wise results page this time. It has introduced roll number range as another mandatory field. This makes it difficult for anyone on the web to download school wise report on basis of affiliation number and school code alone. For people who still want to download the CBSE results from year 2017 onwards, they would need to have an idea of roll number range for the school. It hence becomes imperative to find the logic behind Roll number range for CBSE results 2017.
CBSE uses patterns for roll number for a student appearing for CBSE board exams for class X or XII. The logic/pattern is given below:
where XXX = District code
YYYY=Serial number of student from the district
In cases where the District is a huge one, two District codes may be assigned to it, latter of which is reserved and applied only if required. Also, the district code for same district might be different for class X and class XII. Given below are some samples for a better idea of what we stated.
For example, district code for Ghaziabad for Class XII is 566 as well as 567 since its a big District. District code for Noida for class XII is 585 as well as 565. Similarly, district code for Noida for Class X is 538.
Since total number of districts in India is 707, the first three characters of roll number (XXX) are enough to cover all districts. Last four characters (YYYY) are generated serially based on school applications in no particular order generally.
Hence, as you would have seen above, the serial number requires some guess work. You may alternatively check with one student of the school for his/her roll number and then try giving a logical Roll number range for CBSE results 2017.
We are trying to come up with some reference roll number range for some schools. Stay tuned.
Update Jan 2018: Many schools shared the roll numbers for the board exam students at time of receiving admit cards. That’s the right time to get hold of roll number range.
Hope it helps.
