CBSE 12th Result 2017 date: Uncertainty is prevailing over the declaration date of the Central Board of Secondary Education’s class 12th result, anxiety level increases among students. And it is bound to get worse. While the board was likely to declare the Senior School Certificate Examination results on May 24th, an order by the Delhi High Court to continue with the grace marks policy has led to a delay in the declaration and now the board is likely to challenge the order by HC and they will possibly file a special petition in the Supreme Court to justify their decision to scrap the moderation policy, as reported by PTI. This will surely be time-consuming and that is something students don’t really have. They are on a tight schedule and any distraction or delay is not welcome.
According to top government sources, in a high-level meeting chaired by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday, it was decided that the board will take legal opinion before taking a final decision.
The source said, “Legal opinion was sought and it was decided that the board may challenge the order and results will be announced on basis of the decision.” Earlier in the week, Delhi High Court Called CBSE’s decision to do away the moderation policy ‘unfair’ to the students and that it ‘would have a drastic effect on the students’, they further ordered them to continue with it. R K Chaturvedi, the Chairman of CBSE when asked about the court’s order said, “The court order is being studied in detail and we are trying that the results are not delayed.”
As quoted in the report, the source also said, that the moderation policy is being viewed at three different level, the first being the grace marks that will help students pass in case he or she is missing out by few marks. Secondly the difficulty levels in different sets and third is the spiking of marks which is carried out in the garb of moderation. He further added that “the board is likely to contest the third definition of moderation.” Another major concern that is being raised due to the delay in the declaration of the marks is that the students are likely to suffer in the undergraduate admissions as many other states have already declared their results.
