New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday asked state boards to formulate internal assessment for Class XII exams within 10 days and declare the results by July 31.
The boards, however, argued that it was impossible for the states across the country to have a uniform scheme for the assessment of Class XII students after the cancellation of exams.
To this, a vacation bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari observed that each board is autonomous and hence the court cannot direct for the adoption of such a protocol.
“We are not going to direct uniform scheme. Each board is different and autonomous. We cannot direct uniform scheme across India,” said the bench.
To the Andhra Pradesh government, which has said that it will hold Class XII exams, the apex court issued a stern warning to finalise the logistics for the state board exams by 2 pm Friday.
It also said that the state would be held responsible “if there is even one fatality”.
