The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Friday said it will not approach Supreme Court against Delhi High Court’s order on continuation moderation policy and will declare the CBSE Class 12 results soon, media reports said.
On Thursday Union HRD MInister Prakash Javadekar said that the CBSE would declare the results of Classes 10 and 12 on time.
“CBSE results will be declared on time, the date will be told by CBSE. No need to worry about the court’s order, justice will be done for all,” Javadekar said.
His comments came in the wake of a Delhi High Court order asking CBSE to continue for this year its moderation policy that it had decided to drop in an April meeting.
The moderation policy refers to a practice in which students are given extra marks in subjects regarded unusually difficult, or when there have been differences in the sets of question papers.
The Board conducted the Class 12 exams from March till April. Over 10,98,891 students appeared for the class 12 exams at various test centres across the nation. The CBSE Class 10 Results 2017 are expected to be released on June 2.
