CBSE Class 12th Compartment Result 2020 Date: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Thursday told the Supreme Court that it will declare the results of the compartment exams for class 12 students on or before October 10. The Board conveyed this to a bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and Sanjiv Khanna which was hearing petitions regarding the conduct of the exam.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) also informed the Bench that it will commence the academic calender for undergraduate courses only from October 31 by which time the results will be out.
The petitioners — students of class 10 and 12 represented by their natural guardians — who appeared through Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha and advocates Avishkar Singhvi, Tanvi Dubey and Sanjay Dubey welcomed the submissions and said they “have no further grievance as” UGC “calendar as is being issued, gives sufficient space to” them “to pursue their further option”.
The petitioners also “expressed gratitude to the authorities, who have taken a pragmatic approach in resolving the difficulties faced by them”. Hearing their petition, the court had earlier asked CBSE and UGC to work in tandem to ensure that the academic year of students is not wasted. The students had moved the court seeking cancellation of the compartment exam in view of the Covid situation.
They also sought extension of admission deadline for 2020-21 and directions to CBSE to provide for alternate mode of assessment for students placed in compartment category and to issue specific date for the completion of the assessment. Taking note of the submission, the court disposed of the plea.
