After so many controversies, the much awaited Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 results 2017 will be declared on Sunday, May 28, 2017 before noon. The declaration of the date of CBSE 12th result 2017 has come as a relief to around 11 lakh students who had appeared for the examination this year. A total of 19,85,397 students from Classes 10 and 12 have registered for the exam out of which 10,98,891 are from Class 12. Result will be out in the forenoon today, meaning expect it around 9-10 am.
In the official notification issued by the CBSE it has been mentioned that “likewise previous year this year also the CBSE is hosting its results on net with the technical support of National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Govt. of India”. Further it was mentioned that there will be no official press conference for result declaration.
The senior official from the PR department of CBSE said, “the CBSE Class 12 results will be announced on May 28, Sunday in the forenoon and board will follow the five-point moderation policy as directed by the high court.” The board examinations for class 10 and 12 students of CBSE began on March 9. The exam dates were delayed for a week this year due to elections in five states — Punjab, Goa, Manipur, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
About 4,60,026 girls and 6,38,865 boys took part in the exams. Among the cities, Chennai has the highest number of students participation for the Class 10 board exams (1,54,401) while Delhi has taken the top position for the number of students registered for the class 12 boards (2,58,321). Panchkula has the largest number of exam centres for both class 10 and 12 exams.
The results are being declared one week late than last year, the board declared CBSE Class 12 results on May 21 in 2016. The reason behind is the the row over Moderation Policy. With moderation policy it means grace marks are given to the students in exams for difficult questions or errors in the question paper. After the hearing of the petition in High court filed by a parent and lawyer, the court directed CBSE to continue with its moderation policy and deemed the scrapping of the policy as unfair and also asked to award grace marks to students where necessary. The court said the students who took the exams “ought to have been put to notice” as they have the “right to know” what the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was doing.
After the decision of the High Court, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) sought a legal opinion on the implications of the Delhi High Court (HC) direction, which stopped it from withdrawing its moderation policy for the Class 10 and Class 12 examinations held this year. According to sources, it was revealed that the Board is considering the option of filing a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court against the HC order.
In the meantime, Delhi University (DU) has written to the government seeking HRD Ministry’s intervention with regard to CBSE’s request for “appropriate weightage” to its students for admission to undergraduate programmes this year so that they do not lose out to candidates from other state boards that inflate their Class 12 results.
The Board had scrapped the policy earlier in order to check the high cut-off marks at colleges. The Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar had said that proper marks should be given on the bases of credit instead of schools pushing for the highest possible marks.
After the meeting of HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar with CBSE chairman R K Chaturvedi, School Education Secretary Anil Swarup and Higher Education Secretary K K Sharma it was decided that CBSE will not move to Supreme Court against Delhi HC’s order asking it not to do away with moderation of marks.
