SC Rejects Plea for ICSE Class 9 and 11 Retest

The Supreme Court of India refused to grant the plea of a failed class 11 student to allow a retest for the students who had been unsuccessful in clearing classes 9th and 11th of ICSE Board this year. The student had urged the apex court to push the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) to follow the footsteps of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). CBSE has announced that due to the pandemic, it will allow failed Class 9 and 11 students to take a retest this year. The CISCE maintained that it doesn’t provide retest as a policy decision. SC bench observed that, “It is not open for this court to issue any writ or direction to the CISCE to follow a decision by another board (CBSE).”
