The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will announce the examination results of the Senior Secondary Examination (Class 12th) on Sunday.
The CBSE decided to not to move the Supreme Court to challenge the Delhi high court instructions stating that evaluation for the class 10 and 12 board exams this year should be done as per the grace marks policy.
Aiming to check high cut-offs in colleges, the CBSE had scrapped the moderation policy under which grace marks are given to the students in exams for difficult questions.
In a reply to plea filed by parents and some students, the Delhi high court earlier instructed the board to follow its ‘moderation policy’.
Under the moderation policy, students are awarded up to 15% extra marks in certain papers if the questions are deemed to be difficult.
