SC gives 2 weeks for scheme to evaluate Class 12 students
The Supreme Court on Thursday set a two-week deadline for the Centre to release a “well defined objective criteria” for assessment of Class 12 students of the Central Bureau of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) following cancellation of examinations this year.
While adjourning the matter to June 17, the top court did indicate that it was mindful of the interest of students studying in state boards and will be addressing their concerns after the objective assessment for CBSE and CISCE is settled.
The order came on a petition filed by advocate Mamta Sharma who sought cancellation of CBSE
Aand CISCE exams and an objective assessment scheme to be devised within a specified time frame.
Happy over the “in principle” decision to cancel the examinations, the bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari asked the government why no decision had been taken yet with regard to the criteria of assessment.
