Here’s everything you need to know about the SC hearing:
* Issue to be performed on September 14th.
* The Supreme Court orders the petitioner to serve the Union of India and not the permanent advisers of all states.
* The three judge bank headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar hears the requests.
SC considered a petition on Sept. 4, which was filed on behalf of approximately 2,37,849 students graded into the Compartment category after CBSE announced the results of the board exam based on an alternate assessment method.
During the September 4 hearing of the plea, SC instructed CBSE to produce an affidavit setting out the system, dates and details. CBSE informed SC that department exams for grades 10 and 12 students are expected to be held by the end of September.
The main concern of the students is that it will be impossible for CBSE to safely conduct compartment checks during the pandemic. The petitioners also expressed concern that holding the exam would be too late as college admission is running out.
CBSE has also informed the Apex court that the exam centers have been increased to 1,278. CBSE also said that it has decided that only 12 students will sit in a class that 40 students could sit in.
A notice posted by the board on its official website on Aug. 6 states: “CBSE’s affidavit dated June 25, 2020 to the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India states that candidates whose outcome is based on the scoring scheme in the planned Exams declared by July 1, 2020 through July 15, 2020 are allowed to appear in the optional exams to improve their performance if they so choose, however grades achieved by a candidate in these optional exams will be treated as final for those who who chose these exams exams. ”
