New Delhi: Finally the prayers of the students got some response.
The Union government and the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) informed the Supreme Court on Thursday that the remaining exams for classes 10 and 12 will be canceled.
The exam was scheduled to be held between July 1 and 15.
The decision of canceling the remaining exams was taken due to concern for the safety of students amid the pandemic.
The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), also said they agreed “in-principle” with the government’s decision to cancel the pending exams of Class 10 and 12.
How will the students be evaluated?
All the exams of CBSE class 10 has been cancelled.
As for class 12, the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who appeared for the Centre and the CBSE, said Class 12 students could either opt for an assessment scheme to be notified by the CBSE shortly or appear for the remaining exams whenever they are held as soon as the atmosphere becomes more ‘conducive’.
Mr. Mehta said the assessment for the remaining exams for Class 12 would be done taking into account the marks scored in the “past three exams”.
He also said that the assessment results would be declared by July 15.
The Solicitor General told a three-judge Bench led by Justice A.M. Khanwilkar, “The remaining exams for Class 10 CBSE students have been canceled. As for Class 12, the students’ assessment will be done on the basis of the past three exams.
If a student feels he has not performed satisfactorily and may do better in the remaining exams, he can opt to appear for them whenever conditions become conducive… Then those marks got, whether higher or lower, will be treated as final. A notification will be issued shortly. We wanted to show Your Lordships before issuing it.”
The court, however, told the CBSE to modify its notification and give more details about the assessment scheme.
It also asked the CBSE to specify the date for declaration of the assessment results in its notification, which may be issued by June 26 at the latest.
The Bench directed the CBSE to file a detailed affidavit to “give more clarity” and then listed the case tomorrow, June 26 at 10.30 a.m. for passing further orders.
