Usually, every year as the board results are declared, CBSE takes out a list of students who have topped the board and as well as region-wise toppers. However, with some canceled examinations and postponed results amid the Coronavirus pandemic, it looks like the board is not stressing over the merit list.
News agency ANI reported CBSE has confirmed the list of students who have topped the charts will not be released this time.
