Delhi High Court Says No To Changing Class 12 Re-Exam Date

The Delhi high court on Monday refused to admit a plea seeking rescheduling of the Class XII economics paper, a re-examination set for 25 April by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) following a leak.

Bench said: "Whether to hold an exam or not is for the CBSE". It is not up to the court to decide.

In another related plea which sought retest of both the Class 10th Maths and Class 12th Economics paper, the bench sought to know from the CBSE on what basis the decision was taken by the CBSE for not holding the Class 10 Maths exams.

"As you are saying NDA exam is clashing".

The order came after the court was apprised by the CBSE's counsel that it has issued a notification that the Class 10 maths examination will not be re-conducted as it can not afford to hold it again and make over 16 lakh students appear in it, reported Indo-Asian News Agency. If they again change the date, somebody else will come. But he rested his case after CBSE's decision of not conducting the class 10 re-exam altogether.

In another development last week, the CBSE announced April 27 as the rescheduled date to conduct class 10 and 12 exams in Punjab, which had to be cancelled due to "Bharat Bandh" in the state.

It rejected the plea seeking to change the date of re-examination of Class XII exam as the decided date was close to some entrance examinations, including National Defence Academy (NDA) and engineering.

The bench, however, asked CBSE to place on record the reason behind its decision not to conduct a retest of the Class X mathematics paper.

It had said it was not conducting the re-test for another reason that class 10 was a gateway to class 11 and therefore "remains largely an internal segment of school education system".

During the course of proceedings, the intervener said: "It would not be in the benefit of the students to give retest in the class 12 Economics paper as there are various competitive exams going to be held on the earlier dates".
