CBSE Class 12 board pending exam update: The Supreme Court has further adjourned the decision on CBSE pending examinations till June 25, 2020, as per reports. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was supposed to release a notification announcing its final decision regarding the remaining CBSE Class 12 board examinations today, i.e. on June 24. However, the decision has been further postponed. The students of Class 12th, whose examinations are pending will have to wait for another day to finally know the status of their exams and future admissions for undergraduate courses. According to reports, the Supreme Court has adjourned hearing on the case to June 25.
Moreover, after CBSE declares its decision on pending exams, the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is likely to give its stance on the Board's remaining examinations. Reportedly, a plea was filed by the parents of CBSE Class 12 students asking the Apex court to cancel all the remaining board exams instead of conducting them in the month of July, due to the increasing cases of the novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 across the country.
According to a report in a leading news website, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, on behalf of the Centre and CBSE said that the decision-making process is at an advance stage and would be finalised by June 25. Meanwhile, the CBSE in April had notified its students that the remaining examinations will be conducted for only 29 papers while the rest would just be scrapped. The CBSE pending exam schedule was then announced on the official website of CBSE in May.
However, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the country, the voices against CBSE conducting the Class 12th pending exams began growing louder, which is leading to the SC hearing tomorrow.
