CBSE class XII results not be declared today; Delhi High court orders restoration of moderation policy
That time of the year has come when all those students, who had appeared for their class XII CBSE board examinations, start praying to God for good marks.

All of them, keeping their fingers crossed right now, are eagerly awaiting their results. Being able to score well in this examination paves way for students to pursue their desired course at a college of their choice. The most popular among the myriads of choices being the Delhi University.

We all know how difficult it gets to enroll into a college of one's choice with the cutoffs soaring these days. However, the MHRD had previously held a meeting, in which, it was decided to get rid of the moderation policy adopted by the CBSE, under which, the students were provided with some grace marks in accordance with the difficulty level of the question paper. This decision was sure to bring down the sky rocketing cutoffs in the colleges and would have brought a sigh of relief for the hard working students.

But, call it luck or whatever, the Delhi High Court on May 23 ordered the Central Board of Secondary Education to restore the moderation policy – which allows the provision of extra marks to students for difficult questions – for the time being. Due to this order, the results that were scheduled to be declared on time today have been delayed. Nevertheless, the CBSE has assured that the results won't be deferred indefinitely.

The Delhi 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.
