Delhi HC order on CBSE’s moderation policy
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Pratibha M Singh refused to allow the CBSE to withdraw its moderation policy for the exams held this year, saying “rules cannot be changed after the game has begun”.
Under the moderation policy, grace marks are given to the students in exams for difficult questions or errors in the question paper.
The court said the students who took the exams “ought to have been put to notice” as they have the “right to know” what the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was doing.
The court’s direction came on a public interest litigation that contended that the policy should not be done away with this year since it will affect students of Class 12 who have applied for admissions abroad.
The petition was filed by a parent and a lawyer, who said the policy was changed by way of a notification after the exams for the year were held and hence would have a drastic impact on the students.
Moderation of marks is done to bring uniformity in the evaluation process, wherein marks scored by students are changed to align with the marking standards of different examiners.
In April, the CBSE decided to scrap its moderation policy with immediate effect, which caused distress among students awaiting CBSE 2017 board exam results that there will be a decrease in the percentage as no grace mark will be given for difficult questions.
The CBSE, however, said it will continue with its practice of awarding grace marks to students where a few marks are required to qualify.
