Supreme Court Moved Against CBSE Exams For Rest Papers From July 1
New Delhi: A group of parents has filed a petition in the Supreme Court to direct the CBSE Board to hold the examinations to be held from July 1.
Stating that the students would be exposed to coronavirus if they appear at the examinations, the parents sought a stay on the CBSE decision, according to a TOI report. They also appealed for the intervention of the apex court to direct the Board to give marks to students on the basis of internal assessment.
Earlier, the CBSE Board had announced to conduct the examinations for the remaining papers at 15,000 centres across the country from July 1 to July 15.
As per the petition filed by advocate Rishi Malhotra, “CBSE cancelled the examinations of Class X and XII for its 250 odd schools which are situated abroad and has adopted criteria in awarding marks on the basis of either practical exams conducted or internal assessment marks. It is highly regretful that the respondents herein have no genuine concern about putting the lives at peril of all the students pan India and have no explanation whatsoever in insisting upon holding the said examination in India.”
Malhotra further said when various educational institutes including Delhi University, IITs and state Boards have cancelled the examinations to protect the students from being exposed to the virus, CBSE can do the same.
