According to an official of the BSE ,since its inception in 1955 till date all the examination related data of students who have appeared their High School Certificate (HSC) examinations through it will be digitize .Most of the records pertaining to examinations conducted by the BSE, which will step into its 60th year today are stored in hard copy in the shape of tabulation registers in the confidential section. Most of these are gradually on the verge of decay.Securing storage of data it will be of a great help to students seeking duplicate certificates and mark sheets which would be available within no time after deposit of the requisite fees.
“The Board of Secondary Education was established in 1955.In the initial days the number of students appearing matriculation examinations was comparatively less than today. The number of students appearing for the matriculation examinations has gradually increased with time and it has crossed six lakh in 2015.
Records of all the students since 1955 till date who have appeared their matriculation examinations through BSE is available with BSE in hard copies.With age the hard copies are vulnerable to decay & it will not be possible to provide mark sheets, certificates of earlier years but digitization will solve the issue. So BSE is taking the initiative to digitizing the entire data of students stored in tabulation registers which contain marks secured by the candidate, in which division he/she has passed, the examination centre through which he/she appeared the examination etc, so that when students ask for it in the future it is not difficult for the authority to provide the same.
As per official one crore students would have passed HSC examinations through the BSE in the 60 years span of its existence so it will be a herculean task to digitize data of all these examines which will require time and money.
