According to NDTV, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is considering two ways for marking Class 12 students. The first option is to assign grades to students based on their performance on final exams in grades 10 and 11 and internal tests in grade 12.
Another option is to give board test marks from Class 10 and internal assessments from Class 12 equal weighting.
The Board agreed to cancel these children’s examinations on June 1 after a high-level meeting led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM Modi has instructed authorities to ensure that the Class 12 results are prepared “fairly and on schedule” using “well-defined criteria.”
According to a government statement made following the meeting, students who are dissatisfied with their Class 12 results and wish to sit for the test will be given the option to improve their scores if the situation improves.
The CBSE will respond to the Supreme Court on June 3rd. The court is now hearing two petitions over the Class 12 board exams. The decision by the CBSE to postpone the Class 12 board examinations came only two days before the Supreme Court’s next hearing on the matter.
The government will make a final judgement on whether to hold Class 12 board exams in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak within the next two days, the centre said the Supreme Court on Monday.
