New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday approved of the marking scheme proposed by the CBSE and CISCE to formulate result of students of Class 12 this year since their regular exams have been cancelled due to Covid.

Rejecting a plea by some parents and students who had sought an option of physical examination initially, a vacation bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari called the education boards’ proposal “fair and reasonable”.

Notably, around 1,152 students filed a joint petition seeking direction to the CBSE for cancellation of Class 12 private, compartment examinations. They also demanded parity with regular students.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) had responded today in the Supreme Court of India to concerns raised by some students and parents on their evaluation schemes.

“There is no reason to interfere with the CBSE and ICSE schemes,” the court said rejecting a plea for cancelling the compartment exams for Class 12.

It also accepted the CBSE’s plan to hold the compartment exams between August 15 and September 15.

In an affidavit filed before the court, CBSE had said a panel would be set up to deal with disputes on the computation of results. It also said an online facility for registration would be made available for optional exams for those not satisfied with the assessment policy and that the marks scored in these will be treated as final.

The court had earlier said that both the CBSE and CISCE schemes must be uniform and must give students an option for physical exam before the declaration of Class 12 results by assessment.

The results of the main exams conducted by both the boards will be declared by July 31.
