New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday lifted a condition in a clause in the CBSE’s grading policy from last June that said grades obtained in the later exam will be used as final for the assessment of grade 12 students.
A bench of judges AM Khanwilkar and CT Ravikumar said the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will allow the candidate to accept the higher of the two grades in the subject for final explanation of their results for the final degree were achieved year.
The top court, hearing a plea from some students who took the CBSE exams last year to improve their grades in Grade 12, found that a complaint regarding the provision in Clause 28 of the Directive of 17th that according to this guideline, the marks obtained in a later examination are considered final.
As such, we have no hesitation in lifting the condition set out in Clause 28 that grades obtained under the policy on a later review will be considered final, the bank said.
The Supreme Court found that the petitioners lodged a complaint that this condition had been introduced as a departure from the previous rules, where the better of the two grades achieved by a candidate in a subject had to be taken into account for the final statement of results.
It found that the CBSE had not given any justification for such a departure.
Last year, the CBSE class exam 12 was canceled due to the pandemic.
The bank that ruled on the plea said that the difficult situation faced by the students meant that the directive had to be adopted and that this alone justified a more favorable arrangement for the students.
Initially, the attorney appearing for the CBSE said that these students were assessed according to the improvement test and can no longer benefit from the policy.
“How does this affect you? Give us the reason why this is not possible,” the bank noted.
At last month’s hearing on the matter, the Supreme Court had said that the CBSE should consider the issue of those students who had attended the exams last year to improve their grades in Grade 12 but got fewer grades as it did those of them secured admissions for higher studies.
The students who appeared in the improvement exams would have been admitted based on their original scores and that shouldn’t be bothered, the top court had found.
Before the Supreme Court, a plea was heard from 11 students who were declared passed by the CBSE based on the 30:30:40 scoring guideline in the original results and then admitted to the improvement exams in August-September last year.
The plea submitted by lawyer Ravi Prakash had instructed the authorities concerned to keep the petitioners’ original result instead of the improved examination result.
According to a press release from the CBSE, 34,317 regular students came to improve their grades in the offline exams, it said.
On June 17 last year, the Supreme Court approved the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) and CBSE grading schemes that use the 30:30:40 formula for grading grades for 12th grade students based on results of the Grades 10, 11 or 12.
The CBSE had previously announced that it would grade grade 12 students for theory based on 30 percent of grade 10 grades, 30 percent of grade 11, and 40 percent of grades based on performance in the unit, in the interim semester, and before Board exams in grade 12.
It had said that the grades uploaded by the schools to the CBSE portal of grade 12 students would be taken into account in the practical and internal assessment on an actual basis in deciding on the final results.
