Board canceling class 12 exams this year, said that it will give an opportunity to students to appear for exams later this year.

It is good news for the students who are dissatisfied after the board's decision to include Class 10th, 11th and 12th percentage in 30+30+40 weightage for the preparation of class 12 score. These students will stand a chance to appear for the improvement exams in August. Class XII Private/Patrachar/2nd chance Compartment exams will also be conducted once the situation becomes more conducive, report added.

Exam Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj told India TV news that the exams for such students will be held in the 2nd half of August if the situation is conducive. "Owing to prevailing Covid-19 situation in the country, it cannot be conclusively said, as to when exactly we will be able to have such conducive environment necessary for the conduct of physical mode examinations. Most importantly, when the dates for various entrance tests, like CLAT, NEET, etc., have already been notified, keeping the date of aforesaid board examinations in abeyance, would take away the equal rights of the Class XII Private/Patrachar/2nd chance Compartment candidates of the CBSE, to compete with other students, equally, at such national level entrance tests," CBSE Exam Controller Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj said.

Meanwhile, CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said that the examination for Class 12 Compartment and Private students may be held in the second half of August "if the situation is conducive".

We will also see that how the interest of these students is protected".

The class 12 assessment criteria cannot be applied for class 10 students because the board does not have more information about their learning and past achievements. An assessment criterion is also being finalized for Private/compartment students of Class 10 and CBSE is fully committed to assist all of its students," Dr. Bhardwaj said.

The petitioners have sought appropriate orders and directions for the cancellation of Class 12 private, compartment, and repeater students this year. They have urged the court to direct the board to devise a formula for performance evaluation of such students, in line with the assessment formula adopted by CBSE and other education boards for regular students along with the request to release their results in a time-bound manner.

On Thursday, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released its policy in the Supreme Court for evaluation of Class 12 students which will be based on a combination of marks scored in classes 10, 11, and class 12 pre-board/ ut and practicals.
