New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday announced the Class 12th Board exams results. The results were declared after the CBSE had informed the Supreme Court last month that it will declare the results by mid-July.

Meanwhile, the Board announced that it will not announce the merit list for Class 12 students.

Earlier, CBSE examination controller Sanyam Bhardwaj, as quoted by Dainik Jagran, had said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the board is mulling to not issue the merit list and the toppers list this year, as the results for class 10th and class 12th board examinations will be evaluated according to the new assessment scheme decided by the board.

The ICSE, results of which were declared on Friday, also did not release the merit list and cited ‘extraordinary situation due to coronavirus’ for not issuing the toppers list. In the ICSE board, 99.33% of the students cleared the class 10th exams, while 98.64% of the students cleared the class 12th exams.  

This decision of the CBSE may shock the students who are hoping to top the board examinations. This is the first instance when the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is mulling to take such a step.

In view of the increasing impact and danger of Coronavirus infection, CBSE cancelled the remaining board exams of 10th and 12th. The Supreme Court also approved the Board's assessment scheme, according to which, marks of the cancelled papers will be given on the basis of this assessment scheme.

According to the CBSE, the number will be given on the basis of the average number of the last three papers of the board examination under the assessment scheme. In other words, marks of the cancelled papers will be given on the basis of the average number of papers that have already taken place.
