Clearing doubts on CBSE Result 2017, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said that CBSE will declare the result dates, there is nothing to worry about, no injustice will be meted out to anyone on Thursday.
Earlier Javadekar made clear on moderation policy after a Delhi High Court order on Tuesday said the CBSE may choose to scrap the policy from next year, the HRD minister said, “It’s wrong on part of the school boards to inflate marks… awarding of grace marks has logic but hiking of marks has no logic”.
The Central Board of Secondary Education was all set to announce CBSE Class 12th result 2017 on Wednesday but had to postpone it after Delhi high court on Tuesday directed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to follow its 'moderation policy' of giving grace marks to students for difficult questions.
In a major relief to students who have just appeared for Class 12 examinations, the court asked the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) to continue with the policy which was in place when the examination forms were submitted last year.
The petition had said that the policy was changed by way of a notification by CBSE after the exams for the year were held and hence would have a drastic impact on the students.
On Tuesday, the high court had termed as "unfair and irresponsible" the CBSE's decision to scrap its 'moderation policy' under which grace marks are given to students in exams for difficult questions and had asked why it cannot be implemented from next year. The decision of the CBSE, which would come into effect from this year, "would have a drastic effect on the students,"the court had said.
It had also asked the Board why it cannot implement the change in policy from next year as the results of the 2016-17 exams are expected to be announced in a few days.
Earlier the CBSE Exam was delayed due to assembly election. A total of 16.67 lakh candidates from 16,354 schools across the country has appeared for Class X exam, while around 10.98 lakh candidates from 10,677 schools for the Class XII exams.
