AP govt apprises SC of cancelling Class 12th examination, SC disposes of plea


New Delhi, Jun 25 (ILNS) The final hearing on the matter pertaining to cancellation of CBSE Class 12th examination took place today.

A Divisional Bench of Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari presided over the Bench.

Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave appeared for the State of Andhra Pradesh and submitted that, “I had a discussion with CM yesterday, I advised and they accepted we have decided to cancel the exam and we will follow the approach expressed by Court.”

To which the bench replied that we appreciate the pragmatic stand taken by State. We wish you would have appeared earlier”

The Bench then reiterated the directions given on 24th June to all the states boards that internal assessment results are declared on or before July 31st as directed in CBSE and ICSE.

“Accordingly, the petition’s disposed off, Since respective States have decided to cancel examination we don’t wish to examine any other issue in this writ petition or connected intervention application.” The bench said.

A plea was filed in the apex court by Advocate Mamta Sharma on behalf of students and parents where she contended that due to the unprecedented health emergency and surge in Covid-19 cases, it was not possible to conduct the examination.
The petition also said that it was the duty of the state to take care of the health and safety of students and at the same time, not to hamper their higher education and career prospects. It said the Covid-19 situation was more severe this year in comparison and the respondents should adopt the same criteria of assessing the grading/marks of Class 12 students as last year.

On June 1, the government announced the cancellation of CBSE Board exams for Class 12. The decision was taken at a high-level review meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Hours after the development, Indian School Certificate board exams for Class 12 too were cancelled.
On June 19, CBSE came up with its evaluation formula for the Class 12 results. This 30:30:40 formula gave 30 percent weightage to the students’ performances in Class 10 and Class 11 each, while 40 percent would be given to the Class 12 performance. ILNS\ABV\RJ
