Contrary to expectations, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is unlikely to declare Class 12 results today.
This is after the High Court passed a ruling yesterday asking the CBSE to reinstate the ‘marks moderation policy‘ it had scrapped.
What is marks moderation policy? How can it impact CBSE 12th Results declaration?
According to moderation policy, evaluators are asked to revise marks of some students higher based on the set of questions they received during their exams and the perception of how tough their paper was, says a Hindustan Times report.
So if the board tested students on three different sets of questions papers for the same exam, a student who may have scored 80 percent on the question paper viewed to be the toughest could have her marks revised higher. Soon after the exams were held this year, the government said the practice will be discontinued with immediate effect for several boards, including CBSE.
It is not clear whether the marks moderation policy is different from the ‘grace marks policy’, in which marks of students scoring below the passing line are pushed higher.
The HT report quoted a source as saying yesterday’s judgment was unlikely to ‘delay’ CBSE 12th Results 2017. “Even if we have to apply the moderation policy, it will not cause a lot of delay because everything is done scientifically,” a source told the paper, which added that the results will likely be out this week.
