Ahmedabad (Gujarat): Following the Delhi High Court instructions that the evaluation for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 board exams this year should be done as per the policy of marks ‘moderation,’ the Centre on Thursday gave assurance of fair and undiluted dispensation of justice to all students who appeared for 2017 exams. Moderation means students’ scores are ‘adjusted’ (cut or increased) on the basis of difficult questions asked in an examination.
“The students need not to worry about the court’s decision as I ensure that justice be will be given to all,” Union minister of human resource development Prakash Javadekar said.
The Union Minister also said that the results would be declared on time.
On April 25, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) scrapped the moderation policy.
In a reply to plea filed by parents and some students, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday instructed the board to follow its moderation policy this year. As per the policy, students are awarded up to 15% extra marks in certain papers if the questions are deemed to be difficult.
