Many students have messaged us with a common problem that they have forgotten their CBSE roll numbers.
CBSE roll numbers are required if you want to get a duplicate mark sheet or a dupicate pass certificate. However, because they have forgotten their roll number, they are unable to get the said certificates.
To resolve this problem – the quickest and the safest option is to contact your school. Schools usually maintain a batch wise result list and getting your roll number would be pretty easy.
Also, you can try and contact your classmates who will be able to confirm the roll numbers they had and then you can approximate what series roll number was there for you.
If this fails, then you can try and contact your college who would usually keep the photocopies of your marksheet/pass certificate in their office records.
However the safest option is still to get your roll number through the school result list which CBSE generates every year. It is also available online when the results are declared and a copy is kept by the school.
If all else fails, you can write to CBSE Helpline and discuss with them the situation and they will guide you on what steps you can take to recover your roll number. You may need to prove your identity and your request will take some time to process.
