What about private students?
The Delhi High Court on Sunday granted time to the CBSE to respond to a plea concerning the methodology of assessment of private Class 10 students after the examination was canceled on account of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year.
Justice Prateek Jalan, hearing a petition moved by the mother of a private class 10 student, passed the order after time was sought by the counsel for the CBSE.
In her petition, Payal Bahl has submitted that while students have been declared "pass" after the announcement of the cancellation of examinations, CBSE has not issued any notification regarding its policy on how marks are to be awarded to private students.
CBSE's attitude towards the students who are privately enrolled in the Class 10 examination is "prima facie violative of the Article 14 of the Constitution of India" and takes away "their equal opportunity of proceeding with further education", she contended.
It is highlighted that CBSE has already notified that the assessment of regular class 10 students was to be based on internal assessment.
