The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will not declare the Class 12 Board exam results today, sources from the Board have said.

A Delhi High Court order yesterday, on May 23, directed the CBSE to restore the moderation policy – which allows the provision of extra marks to students for difficult questions – for the time being.

A high-level meeting called by human resource development (HRD) minister Prakash Javadekar today assumes significance as it is likely to deliberate on the High Court ruling. It is expected to be attended by CBSE chairman Rakesh Kumar Chaturvedi and Department of School Education and Literacy secretary Anil Swarup, among others.

CBSE sources have said that the results will not be declared today, on May 24, but will not be delayed indefinitely. “The results are not likely to be delayed. Even if we have to apply the moderation policy, it will not cause a lot of delay because everything is done scientifically,” they said.

The High Court order has not been received as yet by CBSE officials. They will be able to understand more about the application of the moderation policy only after studying it, the sources said.
