The Delhi High Court has granted time to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to respond to a plea concerning the methoexecutelogy of assessment of private class 10 students subsequently the examination was canceled on account of COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year. Justice Prateek Jalan, hearing a petition moved by the mother of a private class 10 student, passed the order subsequently time was sought by the counsel for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
Rupesh Kumar, learned counsel for the Central Board of Secondary Education, seeks ten days’ additional time to take instructions on the methoexecutelogy for assessment of private candidates for the class 10 examinations, the judge recorded in the order dated July 29 as he listed the matter for additional hearing on August 23. The notice to CBSE in the petition was issued in June when the court granted six weeks’ time to the education body to clarify its stand.
In her petition, Payal Bahl has submitted that while students have been declared as Pass subsequently the announcement of cancellation of examinations, CBSE has not issued any notification regarding its policy on how marks are to be awarded to private students. CBSE’s attitude towards the students who are privately enrolled in class 10 examination is “prima facie violative of the Article 14 of the Constitution of India” and takes away their equal opportunity of proceeding with additional education, she contended.
It is highlighted that CBSE has already notified that assessment of regular class 10 students was to be based on internal assessment.
