No moderation or spiking of marks in this year’s result: CICSE


THE Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), which declared the class 10 and 12 results on Monday, did not follow any moderation policy this year, a top board official said.

“We did not follow any moderation policy. Also, there was no spiking of marks. Despite that the number of students scoring above 99 per cent has increased this year,” Gerry Arathoon, the CEO of the Council, told reporters.
“Last year also, we had waited for the Delhi High Court order and then for CBSE’s stand on the issue as the in-principle decision to scrap moderation policy was taken unanimously by 32 boards,” he added.
