The central government will take a decision in the next two days regarding the cancellation of class 12 board examinations. The petition filed for cancellation of CBSE and ICSE examinations was heard in the Supreme Court. Attorney General KK Venugopal urged for adjournment of the matter saying that a meeting has been called in this regard. The AG said that the central government would submit its reply in this regard before the court by Thursday.
Justice AM Khanwilkar told the Center that you must decide. But if you take any decision other than the decision of not conducting the exam like last year, then you must give us good reasoning. The court said that it should be decided, but the petitioner has said that the policy of last year should be adopted.
The court said that the situation was similar last year also. On this, the Attorney General said that he would keep this thing in mind. Thereafter, the hearing of the matter was adjourned till Thursday.

Demand to issue instructions for cancellation of examination
Advocate Mamta Sharma, in the petition, had urged the Board to issue directions to cancel the Class 12 examinations. The petition said, the COVID situation is more dire than last year and the respondents are required to adopt the same criteria as in the previous year for assessing the grading/marks of Class XII students. Last year, amid the pandemic, the top court had asked the board to determine and declare class 12 exam results based on the students’ earlier evaluations.
