The Supreme court postponed the hearing due to this reason:
A bench of Justices Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice AM Khanwilkar asked the petitioner Mamta Sharma during the hearing whether she had given a copy of the petition to the ICSE and CBSE lawyers before the hearing. Mamta Sharma told in response that she will deliver an advance copy to the lawyers today. The bench answered that the petitioner had to send the copy to the lawyers of ICSE and CBSE before the hearing. Therefore, the hearing is being postponed. Now the hearing will be conducted on Saturday.
Mamta Sharma had filed a request in the Supreme Court attempting cancellation of the CBSE 12th board exam. In which she said that if the examinations would be postponed because of the prevailing conditions, the result could be delayed. Which will affect the further studies of students.
At the same time, it is not feasible to get millions of students tested safely in the corona epidemic. Therefore the examinations should be canceled. Simultaneously, the results of class XII should be declared based on the objective method within the time frame fixed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian Secondary Education Certificate (ICSE).
