CBSE 10th, 12th Compartment 2020: A group students have moved the Supreme Court seeking the extension in deadline for 2020-2021 college admissions till the CBSE compartment exams results announced. For more details related to compartment exams, students can visit the official website cbseresults.nic.in. The deadline for college admission is fixed as 31 August.
The students said in their petition that since most colleges have decided to close admission by 31 August, students wishing to take the compartment exam will miss the 2020-21 academic year.
A report by Bar and Bench said that the plea filed through Advocate-on-Record Manju Jetley and Advocates Sanjay Kumar Dubey, Tanvi Dubey and Sanpreet Singh Ajmani, also sought to quash the latest decision of the CBSE to conduct the compartment exams amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Students also said that the mode of assessment for those taking the compartment exams should be changed.
The plea said, “Impugned decision of the C.B.S.E. is completely an after thought. It has failed to take into consideration the reasons why the C.B.S.E. exams were postponed in March 2020 and further cancelled in June 2020. It also fails to take into consideration an alternative innovative mechanism devised by the C.B.S.E. for the students who had failed in Class X and XII.”
