Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare the class XII results on May 28, maintaining that it will follow the Delhi HC order on the moderation policy, which was scrapped last month.
"The results will be announced on May 28, Sunday in the forenoon. We will follow the five-point moderation policy as directed by the high court," said a senior official said, clearing doubt for the students waiting for their results.
"We have decided to abide by the Delhi high court directive, but there will be no ‘artificial’ spiking of marks – as was decided in an April board meeting," the board official added.
