New Delhi: Even as students await their Board results, the Delhi High Court will, on Tuesday, continue hearing a plea that has been filed against the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) decision to scrap its moderation policy.

The PIL, filed by a parent, said that the policy should be revised or at least postponed for next year. CBSE is all set to place its arguments on Tuesday afternoon.

The court, while hearing the plea on Monday, asked the education authority why the policy couldn’t be implemented from next year since the results for this year were to be announced soon.

The plea states that the policy was changed by way of a notification, after the exams were held this year, and would thus have an impact on the students who had appeared already.

The lawyer, appearing on behalf of the parent, said class 12 students would be at a disadvantage as the scrapping of moderation policy could decrease marks by at least 15%, thus putting them at the risk of not matching up to the Delhi University cut-offs this year.

The lawyer added that states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh had decided to implement the move from next year, which implies that only students from Delhi would be at a disadvantage this year.

The court was also informed that DU was asked to give some relaxation to students this year, keeping in view the move by CBSE. But, the university refused to comply.
