Knee-jerk changes aren’t student-friendly

- In the last week of May, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) suddenly decided to scrap its ‘marks moderation’ policy in a bid to arrest inflation of marks. The controversial policy, which was in place since 1992, was withdrawn days ahead of the class 12 results announcement, which led to a panic among the students.

Don’t dishonour doctorates - Nation
