SC: Request to Dismiss CBSE, CISCE Term 2, as well as other Offline Examinations

Supreme Court of India to hear Class 10 (SSC) annulment petition today and Class 12 (HSC) board exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) and several other states.

A judicial panel headed by Judge Ajay Manikrao Khanwilkar on Tuesday ordered that an advance copy of the petition be submitted to the CBSE Permanent Counsel and other concerned respondents. The applicant's lawyer raised the matter and requested an urgent hearing.

The plea has sought directions from the central and state education boards, who have proposed holding board examinations for classes 10th and 12th offline to prepare alternative methods of assessment, considering the hardships faced by students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the past year, nearly all state and central boards of education, including CBSE and CISCE, have had to cancel Class 10th and Class 12th final exams due to the second wave of COVID-19 and pursue alternative methods of assessment.

However, the CBSE, CISCE, and some other state boards have decided to follow a two-term examination system for the years 2021-2022.

The term 1st and term 2nd exams for CBSE and CISCE have already been completed. The exams for term 2nd will take place in April 2022.
