The Supreme Court of India has asked all the state boards to finalize their assessment criteria. So, the state boards are liable to notify the supreme court about their criteria within 10 days from today. Also, the state educational boards have to declare the results of internal assessments by the deadline of July 31. This will go in tandem with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CICSE).
The take of State Boards on the cancellation of Board Exams:
The Supreme Court of India heard the petition seeking the cancellation of the 12th exams today. Thus, many are in the favour of this cancellation and consider it a safe option. Hence, 21 state boards have canceled the class 12th exams so far. They are all following the path chosen by CBSE and CICSE. However, 6 states have already conducted their board exams 2021.
Agenda set by CBSE and CICSE:
Both the boards have already submitted an affidavit to the supreme court elaborating their evaluation criteria. Thus, the SC considers their criteria fair and reasonable. But, the court had received a petition seeking cancellation of class 12th compartment exams. So, they elaborated that there is no reason to interfere in CBSE’s scheme.
State Boards like the Andhra Pradesh board decides to take physical exams:
The Supreme court of India has already questioned the decision taken by Andhra Pradesh. They are in favor of holding physical board exams. So, the SC demands the state to submit file notings that can assist in establishing how the decision was taken and if all pandemic conditions were examined. It even warned the states that even one fatality can lead to a compensation amount worth one crore.
