Both CBSE and ICSE told the top court that the results of the class X and XII board exams can be declared by mid of July. The top court was hearing pleas seeking relief, including scrapping of remaining exams of Class 12 scheduled from July 1-15, in view of increasing number of COVID-19 cases.

Similar relief was sought by the ICSE Board also. ICSE’s lawyer Jaideep Gupta said, “I have gone through the CBSE affidavit. Our affidavit is more or less the same. But our averaging formula is not the same as the CBSE.”
