The Central Board of Secondary Examination will inform the Supreme court about its decision on scrapping board exams due to a continuous rise in COVID-19 cases on Thursday.
The Supreme court is hearing a plea, filed by some parents of students appearing for the exam, seeking a direction to the CBSE to declare the results on the basis of exam already conducted and mark students on the basis of internal assessment marks of remaining subjects.
The parents expressed concern over the safety of the students and requested the apex court to scrap the CBSE's May 18 notification by which the datasheet was declared. The plea said that students might be exposed to COVID-19 infection if they have to appear in the examinations amid the increasing number of coronavirus infections.
