A day after Delhi high court ordered the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to continue with the moderation policy this year, Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar was all set to meet the board officials on Wednesday to take stock of the situation.
The board has not yet declared the All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) Class 12 Results 2017, or even declared the date for the declaration, keeping close to 10 lakh students waiting.The board examinations for Classes 10 and 12 were held from March 9. While 886,506 candidates had registered for Class 10 examination — 15.73 percent more than last year — a total of 1,098,981 students enrolled for Class 12 exams, a 2.82 percent increase from the year before.
As confusion over the marks moderation policy prevails, the CBSE is tight-lipped about when it is going to release the Class 12 results.
Meanwhile, students across the country are worried about their future. “It makes us much more tensed. College admissions will get delayed and this will become a problem,” says Gayathri U, a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya DRDO, Bengaluru.
The Delhi High Court had on Tuesday asked the CBSE to continue with the moderation policy and showed likeliness that the bench might order the policy to be scrapped from next year.
CBSE schools association head in Karnataka, M Srinivasan, told that the results were unlikely to be declared on Wednesday as the results would be have been tabulated without moderation and would have to be re-tabulated after the court order.
