The CBSE Class 12 exam results have been withheld by the board and an urgent meeting was called which was attended by The Human Resource Development Minister (HRD) Prakash Javadekar.
The Union HRD ministry decided to seek legal opinion on a Delhi high court order asking the board to continue with a marking policy that it recently decided to nix.
"Legal opinion is being sought on the issue and various options are being explored. Things will become clearer by the end of the day," said a senior HRD official.
More on the CBSE report:
- The fate of at least 1.5 crore school-leaving students hangs in balance as chaos over moderation of marks grows. No clarity on the CBSE results and the stress level increases.
- Moreover, in the meeting, it was decided that CBSE would be releasing the results as per the 'Marks Moderation Policy' or 'Grace Marks'
- Earlier, the Delhi High Court (HC) following a PIL filed by parents asked CBSE to follow the grace marks provision
- The board officials have said that the result for class 12 board exam would be declared by the end of this week.
A glimpse on 'Grace Marks' policy:
- It is a common practice adopted to bring uniformity in the evaluation process.
- In other words, marks scored by students are changed to align with the marking standards of different examiners.
