NEW DELHI: The Union Human Resource Development minister Prakash Javadekar assured the students on Thursday that the results for class 12 for the CBSE will be declared on time.

After the recent direction by the Delhi High court to the Central Board of Secondary Education to not scrap its ‘moderation policy’ created confusion among students about the delay in declaring results, as the board had earlier scrapped the policy.

"The results will be on time, there will be no delay. CBSE will make the announcement soon. The students should not worry. Justice will be done to everyone," Javadekar said.

The court said while the CBSE's decision was wonderful as it was attempting to bring uniformity in the evaluation process to address the issue of spiking of marks, it "should have been done prospectively and uniformly for everyone across the country".

“It would be a tragedy if the CBSE students lose out on seats in foreign varsities to children from other countries because of the change in policy” the court remarked.  

The CBSE along with 32 other boards had decided to do away with the marks moderation. However, some states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu had decided not to withdraw the moderation policy this year.
