The Delhi High Court on Monday slapped the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for its anti-student attitude. The Division Bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan observed that CBSE was treating students as enemies by dragging them all the way to the Supreme Court in certain matters.

The Court was hearing a plea challenging a single judge order, said the CBSE’s reassessment scheme would also apply to the improvement candidates whose board exams got cancelled due to Covid-19. On August 14, a single judge bench of the Delhi High Court had said the scheme approved by the Supreme Court will also be applicable for those who appeared for improvement examinations as they are equal victims of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Like regular students, those who appeared for improvement exams would also be entitled to avail the scores as per the assessment scheme or appear for the optional examination, whenever it is held by the CBSE, observed the single judge bench in an earlier order.

The student, Sanyam Gupta, who appeared for the CBSE Class 12 examinations in February-March last year, has secured 95.25 per cent. To improve his score, he dropped one year and decided to reappear in Accountancy, English Core, Economics and Business Studies for an improvement examination this year. The Business Studies exam, which was slated for March 24, was cancelled due to the lockdown announced on account of Covid-19.

The petitioner urged that his result for the improvement examinations ought to be declared and in respect of the cancelled paper of Business Studies, he should be treated at par with the regular students for whom an assessment scheme was approved by the apex court. The high court directed the CBSE to issue a corrected marksheet to the student. Thereafter, the CBSE challenged the single judge’s decision dated August 14.

The CBSE counsel said the improvement candidates were getting more chances under the reassessment scheme as compared to regular students.
