As proclaimed last week, the board will issue its date sheet on October 18.

According to accounts, the board elaborated on how the exams for term 1 will be on the lines of objectives for a period of 90 minutes, however, due to the winter season, the exam will start from 11.30 am. In March-April, 2022, the second term exams will be held and the nature of the examination, whether objective or subjective will depend on the COVID-19 scenario in the country at that time.

Marks accorded will be 50% of the aggregate marks and stated in the curriculum. Schools will separately be apprised of the entire scheme enabling them to undertake the required provisions.

The CBSE provides an aggregate of 114 subjects in grade 12 and 75 subjects in grade 10, meaning that they have to conduct exams for an aggregate of 189 subjects, said Bhardwaj. Further elaborating, that if tests are held for all the subjects, the complete time of the exams will be nearly 40-45 days. Thus, to ensure that students aren’t at a loss, the board has undertaken the decision to provide subjects in two parts, namely major and minor, he stated, highlighted the narrative. 

Additionally, since major subjects are provided by nearly all the affiliated schools, exams will be held for them by deciding a date-sheet, as conducted before. On the other hand, for minor subjects, the board will curate groups of schools that provide those subjects, therefore, over one paper will be held by the CBSE in schools in a day.
