New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: The Central Board of Secondary Education or the CBSE on Friday told the Supreme Court that it will declare the class 10th and class 12th board examination results by July 15.

CBSE Exam Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj further told the Supreme Court that the exams which were left pending after the central government imposed a nationwide lockdown have been cancelled.  

Bhardwaj further told the top court that the CBSE will declare the board exam results, following an assessment scheme while adding that the board will give class 12th students an option to appear for exams later to improve their score.  

"However, for students who chose for sit for exams, their marks in the exams will be treated as the final score," Bhardwaj noted.

Bhardwaj, however, said that the students of class 10th will not be allowed to appear for improvement exam, adding that the result declared by the board will be treated as final.   

The CBSE further told the Supreme Court that the assessment scheme will consider marks achieved by students in last three papers of board exams. According to the CBSE, the average of the marks obtained by the students in the "best three performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations have not been conducted".

"There are very few students of class XII, mainly from Delhi, who have appeared in the examinations in only one or two subjects. Their results will be declared based on performance in the appeared subjects and performance in internal/practical/project assessment. These students will also be allowed to appear in the optional examinations conducted by CBSE to improve their performance, if they desire to do so. Results of these students will be declared along with other students," the CBSE said in its proposed assessment scheme.

The board exams for class 10th and class 12th were postponed after the central government imposed a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus across the country. 

The CBSE later announced that the exams will be conducted from July 1 to July 15. The board, however, on June 25 told the Supreme Court that the pending exams have been cancelled as several states have expressed their inability to conduct the exams due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
