Mumbai: The Bombay High Court today set aside the 'best of five' system for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Board students with regard to Standard XI admissions, saying it discriminated against students from other boards.
The court also said that online admission process for Standard XI can commence immediately.
Setting aside the best of five system, the court said it discriminated against the students from other boards such as ICSE and CBSE.
The state board this year had come out with a new rule according to which marks obtained in five subjects would be considered -- out of the six subjects -- for the purpose of issuing Class X mark list. The subject in which a student has fared worst would be left out.
The decision was taken because SSC board felt that ICSE and CBSE marking systems were more liberal and gave advantage to their students in the Class X exam.
But some parents of ICSE students challenged the system, saying the new SSC system is discriminatory, and even ICSE board should be allowed to adopt the same system.
