New Delhi: The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday (June 3) informed the Supreme Court that it will decide the basis of the objective criteria for Class 12 Examinations within two weeks.

This comes after both the boards had cancelled the exams due to the COVID-19 situation in the country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had chaired a meeting on June 1 in which the decision to cancel the CBSE exams was taken in the larger interest of student safety.

Both the boards had already cancelled the Class 10 board exams with students being judged on internal assessments held throughout the year.

Before the June 1 meeting, the Supreme Court was already hearing a petition by  Adv Mamta Sharma  over the cancellation of the exams.

However, after June 1 the spotlight shifted to the method being used to judge the student’s performance.

Furthermore, the marks of Class 12 matters as universities such as DU use the marks to give admission to students in their bachelors courses which increases the importance of these marks.

The boards have already come up with s system to mark the Class 10 students and will be expected to follow a similar kind of approach for their seniors too.
