The Supreme Court on Thursday (June 24) said that state boards need to prepare an internal assessment scheme for Class 12 exams and declare the results on that basis by July 31.
The internal assessment needs to be formulated within 10 days from today, the top court added.

The Supreme Court was hearing the plea challenging the decision of the Andhra Pradesh and Kerala Governments to conduct board examinations in the state.

It may be noted that the Andhra and Kerala Boards have not cancelled the AP Inter Exams 2021 and Kerala Plus One Exams 2021, respectively. While several other state boards have cancelled the Class 12 exams, following a similar announcement by the CBSE and the ICSE boards recently.

"If there is even one fatality we may order compensation amounting to ₹ 1 crore... when other boards had cancelled, why (does) Andhra Pradesh want to show it is different?" a two-member bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari said this morning.

"There are states giving Rs 1 crore as compensation to families of those who died. We may keep this amount for Andhra Pradesh also," the court added.
