CBSE to move SC against moderation order; Board results undecided

New Delhi : Uncertainity remains over the CBSE Board results for Class 10 and Class 12 as Delhi High Court on Wednesday ruled that the new moderation policy should be imposed from the new academic year.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will be reaching out Supreme Court to challenge Delhi High Court ruling over the moderation policy.

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Pratibha M. Singh noted that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had decided to do away with the moderation policy after the students had taken the examinations.

"This may completely change the course of academic future of students," said the bench in its interim order, adding: "A rule can't be changed after the game has begun." 

"It is directed that the CBSE shall follow the declared policy, including the moderation policy, which was in vogue" when the students took their exams, the court said.

CBSE on April 25 has announced that it will be mentioning extra marks aka "grace marks" given to Class 12 students separately on mark sheets.

The roll back of the decision to implement No Moderation Policy as ordered by Delhi HC is likely to further delay the Class 12th and Class 10th Results. Clarity on the same would be made available by CBSE soon at

The decision was part of proposals discussed by top officials of the education ministry and counterparts in the state.
