The exams for both class 10 and 12 were cancelled by CBSE in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The board has announced its alternative assessment policy for both the classes.
According to Vishnu Kartik, CEO of The Heritage schools, the criteria decided by CBSE achieves the limited objective of providing a time-bound implementable framework but it is far from being a fair and accurate methodology.
In a letter sent to schools, the CBSE Examination Controller said that it has been observed that some schools have not been able to complete the school-based assessments in various subjects due to the Covid pandemic.
The top court said that the identity of an individual is one of the most closely guarded areas of the constitutional scheme in India and directed the CBSE to process the requests of students for correction or change, in name as the case may be, in the certificate issued by the board.
