Students awaiting their TN State Board HSC and SSLC examination result this year can get it by SMS as soon as it is put up on the official website. The facility will be available only on BSNL GSM mobile if they send in their registration number in advance by SMS to the telecom provider.
“The advantage here is that the SMS results will be available as soon as the results are released on the website. With the earlier SMS service there was some delay in getting the results. With the new system the registration can be made in advance so that the results are sent to the students by SMS as soon as they are put up on the website.
According to BSNL the system can support as many as 10 lakh users at a time,” said Director of Government Examinations K Devarajan.
The students will receive both subject-wise marks and total marks in the SMS. The service will cost `3. The BSNL has thrown open the service from Wednesday. Plus Two students have been advised to send their SMS at the earliest for the results that are to be declared on Friday.
To register for Higher Secondary (HSC) (Plus-2) results the students are to send the SMS in the format HSC <space> Registration Number to 53576, eg. HSC xxxxxx - where xxxxxx denotes the six-digit HSC registration number.
The sender will receive an acknowledgement message to confirm the registration. If the sender fails to get the confirmation message they will have to resend the message. The registration message is free of cost and subscribers will be charged only on getting the result.
To register for SSLC (10TH Std) results, the format will be SSLC <space> Registration Number to 53576, eg. SSLC xxxxxxx - where xxxxxxx denotes the seven-digit SSLC registration number. The result for the specified registration number will be intimated through return SMS.
The Directorate of Government examinations has also kept open the declaration of results by ordinary SMS service for students using telecom providers other than BSNL. The students can view their results on their mobile phones, at their respective schools, in the district collectorate offices and district libraries where Internet facilities will be made available.
