New Delhi: The Supreme Court has also ordered the cancellation of the examination conducted by ICSE. ICSE told the Supreme Court that we agree to cancel the examination. The state of Maharashtra has told the Bombay HC that they cannot conduct the examination. Therefore, now the examinations of ICSE board have also been canceled. It will follow the internal assessment system. However, ICSE has not opted to take the exam later. The Solicitor General said that the Supreme Court should pass an order that the matter should come to the SC and not to the High Court.
The remaining examinations of the board were to be held in July, against which petitions were filed by parents. It was said that the board should cancel these examinations during the transition of Covid-19. Let us know that the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) had released the schedule for the remaining papers of 10th and 12th exam some time back. These examinations were to be held in July. According to the time table, the ICSE Board examinations were to be conducted from July 1 to July 14. But these examinations have been canceled, meaning that the examinations will not be conducted.
What is the whole matter?
In fact, seeing the rapidly increasing cases of coronaviruses in the state of Maharashtra, the Bombay High Court last week directed the state government to clarify whether the ICSE board in the state is allowed to conduct 10th and 12th pending examinations. The court had asked the state government to clear their stand for examinations. On this, the government had said in the court that the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) board could not be allowed to conduct the 10th and 12th class pending examinations in July in view of COVID-19 status.
At the same time, before this, the ICSE Board had proposed before the Bombay High Court that the students of class 10th and 12th can skip the examinations if they wanted. The result of the students who opted not to take the examination will be released on the basis of the performance or internal assessment of the pre-board exam.
