CBSE to inform SC about its decision on pending board exams:

The board's decision will come in response to a plea filed in SC by a group of parents sought quashing of the notification for conducting the remaining class 10 and 12 exams and demanded that the students be awarded marks based on an internal assessment or in line with marks allotted for practical exams. Moreover, Maharashtra, Delhi and Odisha governments have also made a similar request to the HRD Ministry.
