The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) filed an additional affidavit with the Supreme Court on Monday, informing the court that the results for the class XII board exams would be announced by July 31. According to the CBSE’s affidavit, any disagreements regarding the result computation will be referred to a committee. The Board stated that the examination will be held tentatively between August 15 and September 15, depending on the circumstances, and that marks earned on the optional exam will be considered final.
On Tuesday at 2 p.m., the Supreme Court’s vacation bench, comprised of Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari, will hear a batch of petitions challenging the CBSE and ICSE’s objective criteria for assessing students in Class XII.
The CBSE further clarified in its affidavit that the board’s policy for tabulating marks for the Class XII Board Examination 2021 was formulated to ensure uniformity of marks, as Class XI and XII component marks will be awarded at the school level.
“Disputes over the computation of results will be referred to a CBSE-appointed committee. If candidates are dissatisfied with their results following their declaration, CBSE will provide an online registration facility for the examination “According to the CBSE’s affidavit filed with the Supreme Court.
“The board will conduct examinations only in the core subjects when the conditions are conducive to conducting examinations. However, for those who choose to take this examination, the marks earned by a candidate will be considered final “It was added.
Additionally, the affidavit stated that examinations will not be directly comparable across schools due to differences in the quality of question papers, the evaluation standards and processes, and the manner in which exams are administered.
“As a result, to ensure uniformity, each school will be required to internally moderate the marks to account for school-level variation using a reliable reference standard,” the affidavit stated.
Additionally, CBSE stated in its affidavit that this was necessary “in the interest of fairness and to ensure that the grades awarded are comparable and that no student suffers an adverse effect or gains an undue advantage as a result of the methodology/process of evaluation used by the individual school.”
