Seeking to put at rest the worries over High Court order, Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar today assured the students that Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class 12 results will be declared on time.
Mr Javadekar, who was in Gandhinagar to attend African Development Bank Summit, assured the students that there will be no delay and justice will be done to everyone.A high-level meeting was chaired by the minister with senior officials yesterday, sources said.The Centre is mulling options to challenge the Delhi High Court in the Supreme Court but no official confirmation has come so far.
Students and parents are worried as it was announced earlier that till May 27 results will be out but so far no results have been declared.The Delhi High Court had ordered the CBSE not to go ahead with the scrapping of its moderation policy on extra marks.
The order has put the students in a fix as they were anxious that any consequent delay in the result could affect their college admission prospects.Under the ‘moderation policy’, grace marks are given to students in exams for difficult questions. CBSE scrapped the ‘moderation policy’ last month , a decision termed “irresponsible” by the High Court earlier this week.
