Supreme Court refuses plea for board exams in ‘hybrid’ mode

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday turned down a plea seeking direction to the CBSE and the CISCE to provide an option of “hybrid mode” to students who would appear for the Class 10 and 12 board examinations. A bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and C T Ravikumar said it would not be appropriate to intervene and disturb the entire process.
Solicitor general Tushar Mehta, who was representing CBSE, assured the court that all precautions would be taken for conducting the exams in the offline mode and also informed the bench that the number of examination centres had been increased from 6,500 to 15,000.
The apex court noted that Term 1 board exams of the CBSE had already commenced from November 16, while Semester 1 of the board exams of the CISCE would begin on November 22.
The top court was hearing a plea filed by six students seeking directions to the CBSE and the CISCE to issue a revised circular for conducting Class 10 and 12 board exams in hybrid mode, instead of offline mode only, in view of Covid-19.
The court said the students must have faith and trust in the board authorities who will take all care to ensure that examinees and the staff are not exposed to untoward situations.
