While there was a total of 56 per cent girls who appeared for the Madhyamik, there were only 44 per cent boys who appeared for the same. The same thing was noticed among students of Uccha Madhyamik where girls outshone boys. This year, a special feature was introduced. Examinations for both Class 10 and 12 were conducted in Santhali (Ol Chiki) script wherein total of 832 students took the examinations in Santhali.

The WBBSE undertook several measures to prevent mass cheating during the board exams. In order to avoid any paper leak, certain restrictions were also imposed. Students were not allowed to carry mobile phones, digital watches and caluculators inside the examination hall. Also, sealed packets of question papers were wired with a microchip which would alert the officials if any question paper was opened before the starting of the exam.

Apart from the usual, several Class 12 students could not take certain exams because of the communal riots which broke out in Asansol and Raniganj areas of West Burdwan district in Bengal.
