    Easing out the stress of lakhs of students, the Delhi High Court has given the verdict ruling against the scrapping of the moderation policy for this academic year. CBSE may continue with the moderation of marks this year as well. The decision came after confusion arose among students who have been waiting to see how 'badly' their results are affected.

    A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal & Justice Pratibha M Singh passed the interim order on a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) filed by a parent and a lawyer contending that the policy should not be done away with this year (2017), as decided by some state education boards (like Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh & Chhattisgarh), as it would affect the students of CBSE Class 12th, particularly those who have applied for admissions abroad.

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

    The petition, filed by a parent & a lawyer, has said that the moderation policy was changed by way of a notification after the CBSE board exams for the year were held & therefore would have a drastic impact on the students.

    The Petitioners’ pointed out that no notification on official website (cbse.nic.in) and CBSE’s 12th students may not meet the cut-off of the Delhi University as state boards like Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, & Chhattisgarh will implement this policy from next year.

    On 22nd May 2017, the Delhi high court had termed as "unfair & irresponsible" the CBSE's decision to scrap its 'marks moderation policy' under which grace marks are given to students in board exams for tough questions and had asked why it can’t be implemented from next year (2018 onwards).

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