NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it would hear an application to cancel the Class 10 and 12 offline board exams conducted by CBSE and several other boards this year.
A bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar said that an advance copy of the petition would be given to the Permanent Counsel of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and other respondents concerned.
The application for emergency registration was referred before a bench comprising Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and City Ravi Kumar.
Petitioner Anubhav Srivastava mentioned the matter to the counsel appearing for Sahai and requested the bench to list it urgently.
The application seeks guidance from CBSE and other education boards, which have proposed to keep 10th and 12th class board examinations offline to develop other methods of assessment.
The CBSE has decided to conduct two term board examinations for 10th and 12th classes from April 26.
