The CBSE today, September 24, 2020, Thursday, informed the Supreme Court that it will declare Class XII compartmental exams 2020 results on or before October 10, 2020.
The CBSE submitted an undertaking to this effect in the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court was hearing the petitions filed by CBSE compartmental exam students seeking extension of deadline for admissions to UG courses by the UGC stating that they will lose the chance to get admissions in UG courses even if they pass compartmental exams as the UG admissions deadline will be over by the time the CBSE declares compartmental exam results.
In this backdrop, the Supreme Court directed CBSE to ensure release of results as early as possible.
Responding to this, the CBSE informed Supreme Court that it will declare results on or before October 10, 2020.
The CBSE compartment exams for Class X and Class XII students started on September 22, 2020 and ends on September 29, 2020.
However, CBSE compartment students complained that there is no use even if they pass compartment exams because the deadline for admissions for UG courses as per UGC directions is October 31, 2020 and the admissions in UG courses will be finished by the time the CBSE Board declares compartment exam results.
Normally, CBSE board takes over a month's time to declare compartment results. This time, over 2 lakh students are appearing for compartment exams.
The Supreme Court directed CBSE and UGC to ensure that the career and future of compartment students should be protected. It asked CBSE to release compartment results fast and also asked UGC to extend the deadline till November first week.
