Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared that the date sheet for board exams of Class 10 and 12 will be released on 18th October'2021. The term 1 exams will take place in November - December'2021 in offline mode. The date sheet will be available on the official website of CBSE i.e cbse.nic.in or cbseacademic.nic.in.

"After the conduct of the term-1 exams, the results in the form of marks scored will be declared. No student will be placed in the pass, compartment and essential repeat categories after the first term. The final results will be announced after the first and the second-term examination,” CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said. The following are the guidelines by CBSE for the current batches of class 10 and 12.

This will be an objective-type exam and each will have a duration of 90 minutes, the board said. The exams will start from 11:30 am instead of 10:30 am in view of the winter season. 

Reading time will be 20 minutes instead of 15 minutes for all categories of candidates. Practical exams or internal assessments will be completed in schools before the first-term exams are over. The marks allotted will be 50 percent of the total marks and are mentioned in the syllabus. CBSE has decided that the subjects offered by it will be divided into two parts -- major subjects and minor subjects. 

CBSE will offer 114 subjects in Class 12 and 75 subjects in Class 10. After the conduct of the CBSE Term 1 board exams, results in the form of marks scores will be declared. No student will be placed as pass, compartment, and essential repeat category after CBSE Term 1 exam. Final results of Class 10 and Class 12 will be declared after the Term 2 examinations. 

The second-term exams will be conducted in March-April, 2022 and whether they will be objective or subjective-type will depend on the Covid-19 situation in the country.

"As major subjects are offered by almost all the affiliated schools, hence exams of these subjects will be conducted by fixing date sheets as done earlier. Regarding minor subjects, CBSE will make a group of schools offering these subjects and thus more than one paper will be conducted by CBSE in the schools on a day,” the board said.

Since the exam of the previous batches were cancelled due to the second wave of COVID 19, to avoid such a situation again, and to have at least one board-conducted exam at the end of the academic year, the CBSE has divided the 2021-22 board exam into two terms.
