New Delhi, Jun 24 (Bureau) The Supreme Court on Thursday directed state boards to declare the results of Class XII board exams by July 31. The Court also asked the state boards to formulate internal assessment scheme within ten days. A vacation bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari said, “We’re passing general order for all boards.
We direct the Boards that schemes be formulated and notified in 10 days from today and also declare the internal assessment results by 31st July, like timeline specified for CBSE and ICSE.” Twenty-one states have already scrapped the exams this year while few are planning to organise them as the Covid-19 situation eases. The Top Court expressed displeasure over Andhra Pradesh government’s decision to hold class 12 exams, and said that state will be held responsible if there is even one fatality.
