What happened before the release of results?

On Thursday, Education Minister Prakash Javadekar announced that students should not panic over the Delhi High Court decision as CBSE will be releasing its results as per schedule.

"CBSE result will be declared on time, the date will be told by CBSE. No need to worry about court's order, justice will be done for all'', he said.

Javadekar's remarks came in the wake of the Delhi High Court's direction to CBSE not to implement its decision to scrap its moderation policy on marks this year. The court had noted that the CBSE had decided to do away with the moderation policy after the students had taken the examinations.

The court's direction came on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) that contended that the policy should not be done away with this year since it will affect students of Class 12 who have applied for admissions abroad.

What does marks moderation cover?

Marks moderation can broadly imply some or all of the following:

- Giving grace marks to students to help them pass an examination if they are falling short by a few marks.

- Giving grace marks to students for questions beyond expected or standard difficulty levels or for questions with errors.

- Tweaking of marks awarded for the purpose of bringing uniformity to the evaluation process. This could include differences in how various examiners evaluate answer scripts or disparities in different question paper sets.

High Court Intervention saved lakhs of students:

Last moment intervention by Delhi High Court did not allow CBSE to impement moderation policy from this year and students recieved their marksheets on the previous format.
