The Supreme Court’s decision to conduct regular, classroom-based examinations for private students of class 10th and 12th by the CBSE board was given by the Supreme Court during the hearing of a related matter. During the hearing, CBSE had submitted a note before the bench that the result of private students cannot be released on the basis of alternative evaluation policy fixed for regular students.
