The Union Minister for Education Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has directed the CBSE & UGC to have a coordination meeting regarding the dates for the release of results of CBSE compartment exams.

Earlier today, the Supreme Court had asked CBSE & UGC to work in tandem and coordinate on the date of declaration of the results and cut-off date for admissions to universities respectively so that students taking compartment examinations till September 29 can avail admissions in universities. The bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar had made oral observations while considering a plea challenging the CBSE's decision to conduct compartment examination and seek revising of the cut-off dates for admissions of students of classes X and XII who are taking these exams in September.

Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha, who appeared for the student petitioners, had submitted that if the students who are taking compartment exams are unable to avail college admissions, the exams shall be a fruitless exercise. "I want my Lord's empathy. Create some room for them to get admission. This is their first attempt. It's not their second or third attempt", he had urged.

The court had then posted the matter to September 24, Thursday.
