New Delhi, May 26, 2017 : The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare the results of Class XII board examinations for all regions on Sunday.
“The Senior School Certificate Examination (Class XII) 2017 results for all the CBSE regions will be declared on May 28(Sunday) in the forenoon,” the board said in a statement here on Friday, putting to rest the uncertainty over the announcement of results following the Delhi High Court’s stay on its decision to scrap the moderation policy.
The board decided to declare the results, complying with the High Court’s order.
Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the CBSE to continue with its moderation of marks policy for Class X and Class XII board examinations for this year, observing:“Rules cannot be changed after the game has begun. These children, who have worked so hard and have burnt the midnight oil, are entitled to some stability and the only stability they know is the system. Do not instil insecurity in them.”
The Court’s directive came on public interest litigation (PIL) filed by a parent and a lawyer against the CBSE’s decision to end the moderation of marks policy from this year itself.
“Complying with the High Court’s order, we have followed moderation policy as stipulated in our examination bye-laws,” a senior official of the board said.
As per previous years, this year also the board will host the examination results on the internet with the technical support of the National Informatics Centre (NIC).
“The students can access their results through following websites www.results.nic.in, www.cbseresults.nic.in and www.cbse.nic.in. The result will not be available on the Board and the public is advised not to visit Board’s office for collection of the results. The process of verification will be displayed on CBSE’s website shortly,” the CBSE said.
The CBSE was earlier seeking legal opinion to challenge the High Court’s order in the Supreme Court.
However, it dropped the idea after the government’s legal advisers suggested it not to file any appeal in the apex court as the Delhi High Court did not say anything against the board’s decision to scrap the moderation policy.
In its order, the High Court only questioned the timing of the implementation of the decision to end moderation policy, official sources said. About 11 lakh students registered for the Class XII board examination conducted by the CBSE between March 9 and April 29.
The CBSE was yet to announce the date for the announcement of Class X board examination results which usually comes a few days after the declaration of class XII board results every year.
