In the petition, there has been a demand to cancel the physical examinations of 10th and 12th board of all state boards, CBSE and ICSE.

Lawyer and child rights activist Anubha Sahay Srivastava has also filed an application demanding to give results through alternative evaluation method instead of offline examination.

The petition said that the court should direct the students of classes X, XI, XII of CBSE, ICSE, NIOS, and state boards to adopt alternative methods of evaluation instead of offline examination. Apart from this, the court should also order a correction test to be conducted for those who are not satisfied with the internal assessment.

The plea has also sought a direction to constitute a committee to decide the formula for evaluation of students, including compartment students, and to declare the results within a stipulated time frame. It has been said in the petition that due to Covid, physical classes were not held, in such a situation the board examinations should be conducted online.

The petition has also sought an order to the UGC to constitute a committee to declare the date of admission in various universities.
