The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has begun to send out SMSes on the registered mobile numbers of Class 10 and Class 12 students advising them to download the DigiLocker app on their phones.
With the help of the app, students who have appeared for the CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations 2020 can access their marksheet as soon as the results are declared.
According to a Times Now report, the board, via SMS, sent a direct link to students to download the DigiLocker app. Those who do not wish to download the app on their phones can access DigiLocker online on digilocker.gov.in.
"Dear Student, your DigiLocker account has been created by CBSE. Please install DigiLocker app from https://getapp.digilocker.gov.in to access your digital CBSE marksheet/certificate. To login, use CBSE registered mobile number, OTP and enter last 6 digits of roll number as security pin," reads the SMS that has been sent to students.
A report by Jagran Josh mentioned that CBSE has already created default accounts for students on DigiLocker. To access their accounts, students will have to register on the app using their registered mobile number.
CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 board examination results are expected to be released by 15 July.
The Times Now report mentioned that the marksheets available on DigiLocker app will be accepted for admissions to Class 11 and institutions of higher education.
