The result will now be declared in last week of May.
CBSE has not announced the exact date of CBSE Results 2017 for Class 12 but there was a speculation that the result would be declared on May 24 for the CBSE 12th Exam 2017.

What is CBSE Marks Moderation Policy
CBSE has opted for moderation policy to due to the difference in the difficulty level of a various set of question papers, to compensate the candidates for difficulties experienced in answering questions. It is done to maintain parity of pass percentage through the years.
- As per the latest news, CBSE is likely to stick to its five-point moderation policy.
- A senior official said that "Based on the legal opin ion received by the ministry (on Wednesday), it was decided that the board will not move the court. It has also been decided that moderation will be done based on the rules set (in the examination bylaws of CBSE). However, there will not be `artificial' inflation of marks."
- A Moderation Committee finalizes the specific parameters which would decide how grace marks are given. This is usually done based on computerized statistical parameters
- If a student has scored more than 40 marks in most subjects but is short of two marks to pass in one, the computer automatically awards the student the two grace marks.
- If a student has scored 89% overall, the computer pushed the score to 90% so the student gets placed in Grade A1.
