New Delhi, Jun 19 (ILNS) A section of students studying under the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have approached the Supreme Court, seeking cancellation of Class XII private, compartment and repeaters CBSE Board Examinations, 2021.
The intervention application, filed by the compartment students, has sought direction to the board to arrive at a formula for performance evaluation of Class XII private, compartment and repeater students, in line with the assessment formula adopted by CBSE and other Education Boards for regular students and to release the results in a time-bound manner.
The plea stated, “Owing to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country, it is not advisable to conduct physical mode examination for Private/Patrachar/second chance Compartment candidates, as it would endanger their life and expose them to an environment that may not be safe.
“Most importantly, when the dates for various entrance tests like CLAT, NEET etc have already been notified, keeping the date of the aforesaid board examinations in abeyance, would take away the equal rights of Class XII Private/Patrachar/second chance Compartment candidates of CBSE, to compete with other students equally, at such national level entrance tests,” the application added.
