According to media reports, at least 2.3 lakh students had appeared for the board exams under JAC this year at 1,410 centres.
The Class 12 exams were held from 8 March to 27 March.
The results were expected to be announced by the first week of May, however, there was a delay due to a sudden outbreak of coronavirus across the country.
JAC had earlier fixed 20 March for evaluation of examination papers. However, the spread of COVID-19 virus and nationwide lockdown from 25 March proved to be a deterrent for JAC. The board deferred evaluation till 1 April, but it had to further delay the process as lockdown was extended in wake of rising cases of the infection.
Earlier, Singh was quoted as saying by the Indian Express that the evaluation process of Class 12 answer sheets was completed in the first week of July, and that the board will declare the Class 12 results by July end.
However, reports confirmed on Thursday that the Class 12 result will be announced on 17 July.
Last year, in the JAC Class 12 Science stream, 57 percent students cleared the exam, whereas, in the Commerce stream, the pass percentage was 70.44 percent. A total of 93,781 students in Science registered for the exam of which 92,405 had appeared.
