During the hearing on Tuesday, the Supreme Court declared the CBSE and ICSE 12th evaluation scheme correct and logical.

The Supreme Court also refused to pass any order on the allegation of possible rigging by the schools in the evaluation scheme. The Supreme Court found that for this there will be a Result Committee, which will look into it. The committee will have members not only from the school but also from outside.

At the same time, a bench of Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari turned down the demand of the students to choose either the evaluation scheme initially or the option of appearing in the examination. Along with this, the demand for conducting the 12th physical examination in July itself was also rejected.

The top court was hearing a joint petition filed by 1152 students seeking to hold the examinations as well as the CBSE class 12 compartment exams, state board 12th exams and other board exams. . Earlier, during the hearing of petitions related to board examinations and evaluation in the Supreme Court on June 21, 2021, some students had raised questions on the ISC 12th board evaluation formula by CBSE and CISCE.

On Monday, the CBSE board had told the court to conduct the 12th optional examination in August-September. CBSE Board said that we are preparing the result from the previously announced evaluation policy. The results will be declared by July 31. Students dissatisfied with the evaluation and result will be given a chance to appear in the examinations between mid-August to September.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had released the evaluation criteria for class 12th results on June 17, 2021, which were accepted by the Supreme Court. The board had given an evaluation formula of 30:30:40 for the 12th class result. Then during the hearing, the court had asked the board to include things like grievance redressal mechanism, alternate exam dates etc.

In this regard, during the hearing of Monday, June 21, CBSE had also filed a counter-affidavit in the Supreme Court. According to the affidavit, CBSE had agreed to constitute a dispute resolution committee on the evaluation criteria of class 12th in line with the Supreme Court guidelines. The objective of this committee will be to resolve the grievances of the students on the marks being awarded to them. After this, the court adjourned the hearing till Tuesday, June 22, at 2 pm.
