The petition filed by an NGO-- Justice For All-- mentioned that the CBSE policy to assess Class 10 student based on their performance in previous classes is "unconstitutional and in violation of the provisions of Articles 19(1)(a), 21 and 21A of Constitution of India".
The plea further states that, "The contemplated policy by the board to access the performance is framed in such manner where the CBSE accessing the performance of school for last three year not the performance of the individual students and then links it with the performance of students".
CBSE had earlier announced that Class 10 students will be evaluated out of a total 100 marks for each subject. While 20 marks will be from internal assessment, 80 will be calculated from different exams conducted throughout the year.
CBSE's notification on the evaluation criteria also said: “The marks should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class 10 Board examinations.”
The board had directed each affiliated school to constitute a result committee consisting of the principal and seven teachers to finalise the Class 10 result.
In cases where schools have conducted more than one test or exam, the committee will fix the weightage to be provided to each test or exam.
