After cancellation of the Class 12th Board Exams, concerns have now been raised over conduct of IIT-JEE, CLAT, NDA and more such exams in physical mode. Challenging the decision of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) to cancel the Class 12th Board Exams, a plea was filed before the Supreme Court on Monday (June 21).
While the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination) have already come up with the evaluation formula for Class 12 exams, all eyes are now on the criteria the Odisha CHSE Board is going to adopt. The Vice Chairman of Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE), Tusharkanti Tripathy on Thursday (June 17) made a big revelation in this regard. According to Tripathy, matriculation or the Class 10 examination would play an important role in the calculation of Plus-2 Board Examination marks.
The suspense over marking formula still prevails. The CBSE panel is likely to finalise the assessment criteria for Class 12 Board examinations today and present it to the Supreme Court tomorrow (June 17). If reports are anything to go by, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to take into consideration - the marks obtained by students in the finals of Class 10, Class 11 and Class 12 pre board exams to evaluate marks for students in Class 12 Board exams.
Soon after the cancellation of CBSE and ICSE Class-12 board exams, Odisha Congress chief Niranjan Patnaik urged CM Naveen Patnaik to cancel the Plus-II board exams under the State Board.
