The Supreme Court on Friday accepted the draft notification issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in connection with the assessment scheme for the Board examination cancelled for Class 10 and Class 12 due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The CBSE filed an affidavit in the top court detailing the assessment scheme. According to the notification, for students who have appeared in the examinations in more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best three performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations have not been conducted.
The CBSE further told the Apex Court that CBSE Class 10 and 12 results would be declared by 15 July.
The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) also told the bench its exams have also been cancelled and they will publish the assessment soon.
A three-judge Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna also disposed of all litigation on the subject matter pending in other courts.
The Bench further stated,
“We accept the notification issued by CBSE. Any other petition considering the subject of conducting exams for Class X and XII by CBSE scheduled for July 1 to July 15, 2020, stands disposed off by this order. ICSE in principle will issue similar notification.”
“We make it clear that this order does not deal with any other issue which may arise for consideration in some other proceedings pending before the High court or this Court except the subject matter of conducting examinations for classes 10 and 12 for Academic Year 2019-2020 by the CBSE and ICSE respectively,” added the top court.
