This decision was conveyed by the CBSE counsel Rupesh Kumar to the apex court during the hearing of two separate public interest litigations (PILs) filed by Shivam Kumar and Anika Samvedi.

Last week, the Court had asked CBSE and the University Grants Commission (UGC) to work out a way by which the future of nearly 2 lakh students is not put to peril. Over 87, 000 Class 12 students are appearing in compartment exams this year.
