The CBSE board has sought two days more time from the Supreme Court for a decision on the pending board exams 2020 for class 10th-12th. Subsequently, the apex court hearing the petition filed by the parents has postponed the hearing till 25 June 2020. Now CBSE will pronounce its decision before the court on Thursday, 25 June. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, presenting the case on behalf of the CBSE board, told the court that “the discussion is at an advanced level”. By tomorrow evening, the decision will be finalized. Once announced, CBSE will inform the decision on Thursday to the Supreme Court, after which the court will deliver the verdict at 2 pm.
10th result can be prepared by assessment
According to sources, in the meeting between the board and HRD Ministry, it has been agreed that the result of 10th can be prepared by assessment but not 12th. This is because on the basis of this result, IIT, medical and other institutions are admitted. Many promising students in the assessment may prove to be weak, as they prefer the preparation of entrance exam instead of class test.
Students can be left behind due to delay in examination
At the same time, about 19 states and union territories in the country have completed their board exams of class 12. These include Bihar, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. States that have completed their examinations will soon begin their admission process for colleges and universities. In such a situation, if CBSE examinations are postponed after July 15, then students can be left behind. Currently, the board is working on an alternative evaluation method, on the basis of which it will declare the result of 12th, which will also include the paper to be held in July. However, no formal announcement has been made about this yet.
29 subjects to be tested
A total of 29 subjects are to be tested. Out of these, 6 subject exams are to be held in North East Delhi for 10th class students. They were postponed due to the riots in Delhi. The examination of 12 subjects of class 12 is to be conducted across the country. At the same time, in North East Delhi, besides these 12, 11 more main subjects are to be tested. The board has issued a notification to conduct these examinations between July 1-15. After this, engineering entrance exam JEE-Mains exam is to be held on 18-23 July and medical entrance exam NEET exam on 26 July.
