The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) isn’t going to challenge the HC order in Supreme Court and results are expected as soon as tomorrow morning or evening.The marks may fall slightly this year as board decides to do away with spiking of marks but will continue with moderation policy as ordered by Delhi High Court.The decision was taken after legal advisers told CBSE that challenging the HC order can cause a delay in results.
According to many media reports,results will be announced by tomorrow evening.
‚ÄúResults will be declared in light of the High Court‚Äôs directions and keeping our declared five-point moderation policy in mind. There will be strictly no spiking of marks and the decision taken in the April meeting will also be followed,‚Äù a source told Hindustan Times. If not Saturday,the result will be declared by Sunday.
Yesterday,Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar assured that results won’t be delayed because of the HC order.
‚ÄúIt has been decided that the board will not move the court based on the opinion received from the legal counsel and the Additional Solicitor General (ASG). We will carry out moderation based on the rules set (in the examination by laws of CBSE). But no ‚Äòartificial‚Äô spiking of marks will be done,‚Äù a CBSE official told Hindustan Times.
The moderation policy says extra marks will be given over any of the following factors according to Hindustan Times :
1.If students found it difficult to solve a question due to ambiguities/misinterpretation of a question
2.If a particular set of question papers had tougher questions than others
3.To maintain parity of pass percentage of students in the current year compared to previous examinations. This parity is seen for individual subjects and overall percentages
4.To bring parity keeping the subjectivity involved in the evaluation process
5.To compensate for variations and to bring uniformity in the evaluation process.
We wish all the students and parents best of luck for the upcoming results.
