The State Board of Andhra Pradesh said it wanted to conduct the Class XII examinations.
But the top court wasn’t impressed as it raised questions about the safety of over five lakh students.
“Unless we are convinced that you are prepared to conduct the exam without any fatality, till then we will not allow it. When others have cancelled you can’t hold it to show you are different…” it said posting the matter for further hearing on Friday.
The Haryana Government counsel said state boards should be given the freedom to formulate their own assessment schemes.
