To the Supreme Court the Government will not approach against a High Court verdict forcing the CBSE to continue the marks moderation policy, today the officials said that, a day after Prakash Javadekar the Union Education Minister assured 11 lakh students appeared in the CBSE exams that on time the results will be declared. After the legal advice from the lawyer of the Government the decision has come which said that, CBSE should not challenge the orders of High Court and the Policy could be implemented next year, said by the sources. Currently, for the students the timing is crucial who need to apply for college admissions in Delhi and elsewhere.
10 points are here on this story:-
1) “On time will be the results, announcement will be made soon by the CBSE. The students should not worry. To everyone the justice will be done,” on Thursday Mr Javadekar said. Tis week the CBSE was expected to declare the results of class 12th.
2) In the system of moderating marks the uncertainty over the CBSE class 12th results owes its origin to flaws that were initially meant to bring about uniformity in the evaluation of exam papers. If the students in a particular year, or region, in a particular paper did not do well, they were given extra marks. This was a key reason for the outrageously high cut-off marks for admission to Delhi University colleges last year.
3) By the CBSE an analysis, however indicated that this policy and decided to stop the practise has problems in executing. Over the last decades the number of toppers with over 90% had now multiplied from 400 to 14,000.
4) Many state boards were found in moderating the marks to give their students an advantage and to tweaked the formula as they were little generous over it.
5) To the students moderating marks helps for those who did not score much in the exams; many of the students who originally did not score the minimum marks, 33% also stood to benefit.
6) By the CBSE sudden decision last month to scrap the moderation policy ran into trouble this week. Ruled by The Delhi High Court that the goalpost could not change by the CBSE once the examination process had started and told to CBSE to continue the moderating the marks this year as well.
7) Technically, for CBSE this was not a difficult task to moderate the marks but there was one big complication. When the CBSE scrapped the moderation policy, it didn't do it alone and had persuaded many of the 32-odd state education boards to do likewise.
8) 10 School examination board already have declared their 12th class results, completely or partially. The states which has declared their results is Punjab and Haryana where the percentage of pass has been dropped sharply after the education board stopped the moderating marks.
9) To the state education board the students of the schools affiliated that did not moderate the marks this year will be a disadvantage if the CBSE, the prime mover of the plan- of its own tweaks the marks. Now it is very late for the state board to change the marks as it is already declared, or even pass the students who have been declared as failed.
10) Officials of CBSE earlier indicated an appeal to the Supreme Court against the High Court verdict as it is the most painless way out of the quagmire, particularly in the light of concerns that the students of CBSE could miss out the higher educational opportunities in some states where local education boards have already declared the results.
