SC to give final order on CBSE Class 12, CISCE Class 12 board exams on Monday


New Delhi, Jun 19 (ILNS) The Supreme Court will continue hearing on a petition seeking cancellation of Class 12th state board exams and on the evaluation criterion for students, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on Monday.

A Vacation Bench comprising Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari was scheduled to hear the petition at 11 am today.

The petition was filed by Advocate Mamta, seeking cancellation of CBSE and ICSE Class 12 board exams. Besides, a petition seeking cancellation of Class 12 State Boards, HSC and NIOS physical exams was filed by Child Rights activist Anubha Srivastava and seven others.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) were to submit the evaluation criterion for the students of Class 12 to SC today.

Earlier on June 17, CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021 for result calculation was submitted to the Supreme Court. In the detailed criteria as shared, marks scored by students in their Classes 10, 11 and 12 would be considered in the ratio of 30, 30 and 40 percent.

On June 1, the Board had cancelled the CBSE class 12 board examination amid the continuing upsurge in COVID-19 cases across the country. The decision to cancel the CBSE Class 12 board examination 2021 came after the high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi held on June 1, 2021.

The apex court had expressed its satisfaction regarding the Central government’s decision to cancel the class 12 board exam.

The Court had further directed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) to come up with the well-framed objective criterion based on which the students of the class 12 board will be evaluated this year. ILNS\ABV\RJ
