GUWAHATI: Among the options that are being planned for class 12th results, there has been a proposal to assess students on the results of Classes 9, 10 and 11. Though most states have backed CBSE’s option for a truncated exam, a few states disagreed and some demanded vaccination of candidates and staff before holding the exams.
Though the students have approached the judiciary and are very active on Twitter- demanding cancellation, a notification of CISCE (which conducts ICSE and ISC exams)-meant for schools called for submission of candidate marks in previous classes and got posted on social media. But it was deleted right after few minutes.
Although states/ UTs have made their suggestions, everyone would look at the CBSE way as the guiding principle. Therefore, whatever decision the Centre is likely to take by June 1 will be important not only for the forthcoming entrance tests but also for states in conducting their own board exams,” said a senior official in the ministry of education.
However, a document dated, May 27th, on the letterhead of the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations stated that the board has begun the collection of data exercise by asking schools to collate data about average marks of subjects scored by students in Class 11 as well as in various examinations and internal tests conducted during the session in Class 12. While a CISCE official has not confirmed or denied sending the “strictly confidential” letter, schools confirmed having received the same.
The board has instructed that the papers or subjects must be the same for which candidates have been registered and confirmed for Class 12 exams. This led to speculation that CISCE too is working towards canceling the exams.
