With the board not challenging the Delhi HC order, the CBSE could put out results even on Saturday
With the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) deciding not to move the Supreme Court on the Delhi High Court’s ruling to stick with the marks moderation policy, it is likely the board will declare the Class 12 results within 48 hours.
The results could be announced as soon as Saturday evening, said reports on Network18.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday had directed the CBSE to restore the moderation policy a day before the day results were expected.
“The important and underlying reason for this move by CBSE definitely deserves credit. The unrealistic cut-offs in colleges due to artificial inflation of marks was a bubble waiting to burst,” said Sunita Nagpal, the principal of DPS, Sushant Lok, Gurgaon, about the moderation policy to NDTV.
Earlier, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said the CBSE would give grace marks to students whose scores are just below the passing line, while the policy to inflate marks of high-scoring students would be stopped. Meanwhile, other boards like the ICSE and the UP board have delayed their results as they wait for CBSE’s decision on the moderation.
