The CBSE opposed a plea seeking postponement of compartment exams for 12th class scheduled this month, in the Supreme Court, saying all 'necessary' safety measures for students are being taken in view of COVID-19 pandemic
The CBSE Friday opposed in the Supreme Court a plea seeking postponement of compartment exams for 12th class scheduled this month, saying all "necessary" safety measures for students are being taken in view of COVID-19 pandemic.
A bench comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna asked the counsel for the petitioner whether postponement of the examinations will help the students.
The apex court asked the counsel for the petitioner to be clear about the relief being sought when he said the students will be considered as failed as the compartment examinations will not be concluded by September end.
The lawyer also said the students will not be able to apply for further studies as admissions in universities will close by the time compartment examinations will be held.
The counsel for CBSE said that on the one hand, petitioner wanted cancellation of examinations and then also raised the issue of admissions in universities.
