Moderation to continue; CBSE Class 12 results soon


A sense of uncertainty had prevailed over the announcement of Class XII results as the CBSE was planning to challenge the Delhi HC order.

New Delhi: The announcement of CBSE Class XII exams can be expected anytime from now as the board has decided not to challenge a Delhi High Court order allowing continuation of its moderation policy on extra marks which was scrapped last month.

Hence the results are more likely to be out on Saturday or Sunday.

A sense of uncertainty had prevailed over the announcement of Class XII results as the CBSE was planning to challenge the Delhi HC order.

On Thursday, Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar had said that the Central Board of Secondary Education would declare the results of Classes 10 and 12 on time.

"CBSE results will be declared on time, the date will be told by CBSE. No need to worry about the court's order, justice will be done for all," Javadekar told reporters in New Delhi.

Javadekar's remarks came in the wake of the Delhi High Court's direction to CBSE not to implement its decision to scrap its moderation policy on marks this year.

The court had noted that the CBSE had decided to do away with the moderation policy after the students had taken the examinations.

The court's direction came on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) that contended that the policy should not be done away with this year since it will affect students of Class 12 who have applied for admissions abroad.

The petition was filed by a parent and a lawyer, saying the policy was changed by way of a notification after the exams for the year were held and hence would have a drastic impact on the students.

Moderation of marks is done to bring uniformity in the evaluation process, wherein marks scored by students are changed to align with the marking standards of different examiners.

Several parents had raised concern over the delay in declaration of results citing that it may affect the chances of the higher studies of their wards.
