New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the state boards to declare internal assessment results of Class 12 examination by July 31,
The apex court made it clear that there can’t be a “fit-all” scheme and each board was autonomous and free to formulate its own evaluation method for students. The SC also stated that it will not pass any direction for having a uniform scheme for assessment across the country.
The Supreme Court further directed the state boards to ensure that scheme be formulated at the earliest and not later than 10 days from Thursday.
The top court was hearing a plea that has sought directions to states to not hold board examinations in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the hearing conducted through video-conferencing, the bench was told by an advocate appearing in the matter that state boards that have cancelled the class 12 examinations amid the pandemic may be asked to have a uniform scheme for assessing students.
