12th examination: CBSE’s policy to consider only the marks obtained in the final examination

The Supreme Court on Friday set aside the condition specified in CBSE’s evaluation policy in June last year that the marks obtained in subsequent examinations would be considered final for evaluation of Class 12 students. A bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and CT Ravikumar said the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will provide an option to the participant to accept the better of the two marks obtained in a subject in the last academic year for the purpose of declaration of the final result.

The court was hearing a plea by some students who appeared in the examination conducted by CBSE last year for improvement in their class 12 marks. The apex court said that a complaint has been made about the provision in clause-28 of the policy dated June 17, 2021 which states that “… in accordance with this policy, the marks obtained in the subsequent examination shall be treated as final.”

“Consequent to this, we have no hesitation in setting aside the condition specified in clause-28 that the marks obtained in the subsequent examination shall be treated as final,” the bench said. The Court observed that the petitioners complain that this condition has been added in supersession of the earlier policy, where the better of two marks obtained by a candidate in a subject was to be kept in the final declaration of result.

The court said that no justification was given by the CBSE for removing the earlier policy. Last year’s CBSE 12th board exams were canceled due to the pandemic.

Disposing of the petition, the bench said that there was a need to adopt that policy as the challenging situation is being faced by the students and it in itself justifies the provision which is more favorable to the students. Initially, the counsel for CBSE said that these students have been assessed as per the improvement examination, and now they cannot avail the benefit of the policy.

The bench said, “How does this affect you? Give us justification, why it is not possible.” The top court was hearing a plea of ​​11 students, who were declared passed by CBSE in the original results on the basis of the 30:30:40 evaluation policy and later were allowed to appear in the improvement examination held in August-September last year. permission was granted.

Hearing the matter last month, the top court had said that the CBSE should consider the problem of students who appeared in the Class 12 examinations last year to improve their marks but got lesser marks as it was higher. will affect the admission they get for studies. The court had said that the students who appeared in the reform examination have taken admission on the basis of their original results and there should be no disturbance.
