- For Private candidates, neither the schools nor CBSE have the desired records, hence, their results cannot be prepared based on the assessment policy.
- For private candidates no records based on which their assessment could be done without conduct of examination as done in case of regular students is available and thus tabulation policy cannot be implemented
It is important to note that the issue of Private candidates was also discussed in Supreme Court of India and thereafter policy was decided wherein written examination will be held for declaring result of private candidates. This issue was discussed in detail and the court has agreed to it with all petitioners.
The Tabulation Policy for assessment of results was framed by a committee looking into all aspects of regular and private candidates. The Board will conduct the exams for private category of students between 16th August, 2021 and 15th September, 2021 and there result will also be declared in the minimum possible time to avoid any difficulty to them in admission in higher education. The notification in this regard will be issued soon.
The CBSE in its notice said that UGC and CBSE are looking into the interest of all the students and UGC will be synchronizing the admission schedule based on the result of these students as it was done by UGC in 2020.
