The CBSE Class 12 results 2017 had been delayed because of uncertainty over the marks moderation policy. As an endeavour to check the high cut off in colleges, the CBSE was had scrapped the Moderation policy which was to give grace marks to students for difficult questions. But after pressure from the high court the board decided to implement the change from next year. The start of Class 12 CBSE exams too had been delayed, from March 1 to March 9, due to assembly elections in five states.
The results are available on the official results portico of the board. This year the CBSE class 12 results were almost affected by the controversy of the board first deciding to remove the Marks Moderation Policy, and then Delhi High Court ordered the board that the board cannot change the rules last minute. MHRD which had been consulted by the board had said that the moderation policy should be implemented this year in CBSE class 12.
Class 12 students of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board have welcomed the board’s decision to continue with the moderation policy after the high court order. The moderation policy will enable the students to avail the option of choosing the college of their choice in the country for higher studies.
Students are happy with the CBSE decision of not approaching the Supreme Court to challenge the recent Delhi High Court verdict on moderation policy. Further delay would have led to more anxiety amongst students since they have been waiting to take admission in various colleges. The cut-offs would have certainly gone down but also the percentages scored by the students. The students were in great panic and anxiety while the controversy was on right before the exam. CBSE students would have suffered further if the moderation policy had been discontinued at this juncture.
Grace marks are given in cases where a student narrowly misses the passing mark. On this there has been a question that should the grace marks to be reflected openly, but they will not be. A senior board official mentioned that Board would follow the policy as directed by the High Court as per the limits of the Moderation Policy, but the marks will not be mentioned as they had discussed on the contrary in April. However, a few states had at that time expressed apprehension over mark sheets reflecting grace marks, saying it could perceived as a stigma. Others, however, argued that would be unfair for those who passed without the extra marks.
Moderation to What Extent
However, people aware about developments said moderation was not more than four marks this year. “We have awarded three to four marks more,” said a source in the CBSE, an indication that the board has been stringent in awarding extra marks.
The number of students who scored between 95% and 100% increased this year while that in the 90%-95% bracket dropped. Around 10,091 candidates figured in the 95%-100% category this year against the 9,351 last year. This year, the number of students in the 90%-95% category was 53,156 while in 2016 there were 54,036 students, a drop of 880 candidates.
The increase of 740 students in the top bracket is due to moderation, say CBSE sources. “This is sign that we have carried out moderation as per the orders of the Delhi Court,” said the source adding that the capping for moderation was kept at 95%.
