New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) board on Friday announced that they will be declaring the class 10th and class 12th board exam results by July 15. This comes shortly after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) informed the Supreme Court that they will be declaring the class 10th and class 12th results by July 15. 

The Supreme Court today approved the assessment scheme submitted by the CBSE to evaluate the marks of the students for the cancelled exams. However, Jaideep Gupta, counsel appearing for ICSE board told the Supreme Court that the board has gone through the assessment scheme of CBSE and said that their assessment scheme is more or less the same, but the averaging formula of ICSE board is different from that of CBSE, he told the top court. The ICSE board also said that they will be notifying their assessment formula to the students with a week.

The ICSE board also told the Supreme Court that they will also give the option to both class 10th and class 12th students to appear for the exams later if it is conducted in future.

"We accept the notification issued by CBSE. Any other petition considering the subject of conducting exams for Class X and XII by CBSE scheduled for July 1 to July 15, 2020, stands disposed off by this order. ICSE in principle will issue similar notification," ICSE told the apex court.

Earlier yesterday, the ICSE board told the Supreme Court that the pending exams for class 10th and class 12th have been cancelled in view of the situation due to coronavirus pandemic in the country. However, during yesterday's hearing, the ICSE board had informed the top court they will not be giving any option to students to appear for the exams later. 

The decision of ICSE board came after a separate plea was filed in the Supreme Court on Tuesday which has sought scrapping of the examinations conducted by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (ICSE) amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
