The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and ICSE have canceled the remaining 10th and 12th examinations proposed in July. The examination result of the students of 10th will be declared after evaluating the remaining question papers based on the evaluation of their last three internal examinations.

The same formula will be adopted for students of class 12. However, there will also be an option to appear for the examinations of 12th class for CBSE. This information was given by the Central Government and CBSE on Thursday to a bench headed by Supreme Court Justice AM Khanwilkar, which is hearing the petitions filed by the parents.

The bench also comprises Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice Sanjeev Khanna. The bench asked Attorney General Tushar Mehta to issue a notification regarding the government's plan by Friday so that students' worries could be overcome. The judges said that they will give their verdict only on the basis of this notification.

CBSE's 10th board exams started on 21 February and were to end on 29 March. While the 12th exam started on 15 February and was to end on 3 April as planned. But due to the riots in Delhi and Corona infection in other states, the exam had to be cancelled.

In such a situation, if lakhs of students appear in the examinations, then there is a risk of getting infected. Therefore, the court directed CBSE to evaluate the average of exempt examination on the basis of internal evaluation and declare the result. After notice and instruction of the Supreme Court, the ICSE changed its decision and informed the court of not taking the remaining examination of 10th and 12th now, while the CBSE board said that the remaining examination of 10th will no longer be taken.

There will be a double option in the 12th. Students who want to take the exam, their examination will be taken as soon as the situation improves otherwise the result will be declared by giving average marks based on three tests of internal assessment. But students have to tell which option they want to adopt. The bench asked Mehta to declare a detailed plan by Friday. Options should be explained. It should also be told by when the result will be declared. For those who are willing to take the exam.
