What if students are not satisfied with their results?
In case a candidate has objection(s) in connection to the marks they have been awarded, they have the option to make a written complaint to their respective schools stating the objection in detail. Schools will go through all the complaints in detail and forward only valid ones to the CISCE board. All these requests have to be sent to the board latest by August 1.
