    Delhi HC to CBSE: Decision to Scrap Moderation Policy an 'Irresponsible' Act

    In a major relief to students who have just taken CBSE Class 12 board exams, the Delhi High Court today directed the CBSE to follow its 'moderation policy'.

    On 22nd May 2017, the High Court had termed as "irresponsible & unfair" the board's decision to scrap its 'marks moderation policy' under which grace marks are given to students in exams for difficult questions and had asked why it cannot be implemented from next year (i.e. 2017-18).

    The decision of the CBSE, which would come into effect from this year, "would have a drastic effect on the students," the court had said.

    The Delhi High Court had also asked CBSE why it cannot implement the change in policy from next year as the results of the 2016-17 board exams are expected to be announced in a few days.

    The CBSE along with 32 other state education boards had decided to do away with the marks moderation policy last month.
