Last week CBSE released an official notification clarifying that compartment exams cannot be cancelled since it is against the policies. Right after that 809 students moved to the supreme court and urged SC to take suo motu cognizance of CBSE’s decision.
CBSE released the compartment forms one day prior to the hearing at the Supreme Court. Students along with the parents have expressed disgust towards the board. Some even think releasing the forms before the hearing was a clever move by the board to collect the exam fees.
This is a forced examination by the board. Earlier in July, CBSE cancelled the main exams and promoted some students on the basis of internal assessment but is now reluctant to cancel the compartment exams.
State boards are supporting students by cancelling the compartment exams amidst this pandemic where as CBSE is in no mood to cancel the exams and wanting to increase the number of cases and add stress.
