New Delhi: Amidst hysteria among the students over the announcement of CBSE 12 Results, the recent news has come up that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is not going to approach the Supreme Court over Delhi High Court's order of allowing continuation of moderation policy on extra marks which was scrapped last year. With Board's decision of not approaching the Supreme Court, there is a possibility that CBSE Result 2017 can come out anytime soon. As per sources, the CBSE is likely to give the result date today which will provide a sigh of relief to all students who had been waiting long for the results. Soon after the official announcement, students can check their results online on official website of the board i.e. cbse.nic.in or cbseresults.nic.in.
As per earlier reports, the CBSE was likely to approach the Supreme Court with a special leave petition (SLP), challenging the Delhi High Court order on marks moderation policy. However, its legal advisers said the process might end up delaying the result announcement significantly.
“It has been decided that the board will not move the court based on the opinion received from the legal counsel and the Additional Solicitor General (ASG). We will carry out moderation based on the rules set (in the examination by laws of CBSE). But no ‘artificial’ spiking of marks will be done,” said a CBSE official.
Even as of now, the Board is mum about the tentative date, which has left both parents and students in a tizzy. However, some media reports claim that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare Class 12 results within 48 hours, adding that results could come out as soon as Saturday evening. The CBSE board is expected to put up a notification on the official websites cbse.nic.in and cbseresults.nic.in.
The board is under pressure to declare results soon, as they have already been late due to the delay in exams because of the assembly polls earlier this year.
Meanwhile, other boards on the verge of releasing results, like UP board results 2017 and Council for Indian School Certificate (CICSE) results 2017, have also hinted their results could also be delayed as they prefer to await CBSE's final decision on the matter.
Earlier on Thursday, the Delhi High Court on Thursday had said that doing away of the marks moderation policy this year was unfair to students who had registered for the exam when the policy was still in place. The high court had also termed the board's decision as "unfair and irresponsible" to scrap its '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. The decision of the CBSE, which would come into effect from this year, "would have a drastic effect on the students," the court said.
