The CBSE board has divided the board exams into term I and term II for the academic session 2021-22. The term I exams were organized in November-December months and the Term II exams were scheduled from 26th April. The board has announced that more weightage will be given to the term 2 examinations.
While, before year the examinations were cancelled due to COVID surge and the results were declared by considering the internal assessment marks, practical examinations, and previous examination results of the students.
After the request from several schools, the CBSE board has taken the decision to organize the examinations at the end of the academic year as earlier.
“CBSE never announced that the two-term exam format will be continued henceforth. It was a one-time formula. Now that schools are functioning in full capacity, the decision, for now, is to stick to the one-time exam format,” said the official.
