CBSE class 12th results 2017: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to release the results of Class 12th examination by the end of this month. While earlier the Board was planning to go to Supreme Court for marks moderation, it has however decided not to take the matter in the Supreme Court as it may postpone the results. The CBSE officials maintain that the results will be out by May-end.
The Delhi High Court has today questioned the marks moderation policy of CBSE. It also asked the Board why it cannot implement the change in policy from next year as the results of the 2016-17 exams are expected to be announced in a few days.
Though this year, the CBSE exams were postponed due to Assembly Elections held in five states, however the Board will declare the results on time to avoid any delay in admissions for various undergraduate courses in the universities.
