After the uncertainty, which stemmed from the Delhi High Court’s ruling regarding the marks moderation policy, the Class XII Board Results will be announced on Sunday, May 28th in the forenoon by the Central Board of Secondary Education.
Previously, the results were scheduled to be declared on May 24th. However, in lieu of the divisive ruling of the High Court on Tuesday which directed the Board to continue with the marking policy, the CBSE results were inevitably delayed.
After a meeting called by the Human Resource Development Minister, the Board discussed and deliberated on the legal aspects of the High Court’s ruling. It has decided to adhere to the five-point moderation policy for this year, without spiking the marks and following the resolution undertaken in the April 24th meeting. “Results will be declared on Sunday. We will follow the moderation policy as enshrined in Rule number 59 of examination bylaws of CBSE,” said RK Chaturvedi, the chairman of CBSE.
Post the announcement of the results, the process of marks verification will be intimated on the website, allowing students to appeal for the re-evaluation of marks. Conforming to the decision taken in the meeting, a dip in the scores is anticipated. However, an official said, “This also depends on the performance of the students too. In case they have performed well, it might not dip as such.”
The candidates can check their scores on www.cbseresults.nic.in on May 28th.
