New Delhi| Hearing is going on for the second consecutive day in the Supreme Court on the remaining examinations of CBSE and ICSE Board for the 12th class examinations. The board informed the court that students of class 10 can also be given the option to take the exam again later. The board also said that their ‘averaging marks’ formula is different from CBSE. ICSE counsel Jaideep Gupta said that I have read the affidavit of CBSE and ours is almost the same.
What happened in the hearing on Thursday
CBSE had decided to cancel the remaining papers of 10th and 12th due to increasing cases of Coronavirus. The papers of 29 subjects of both these classes were to be held from July 1 to 15. In the Supreme Court hearing on Thursday, on behalf of the board, the government said that now the assessment of the 12th students will be based on their last 3 exams.
