CBSE releases datesheet: Class 10 exam from Nov 30, Class 12 from Dec 1
The CBSE announced the datesheet for the examinations in major subjects to be conducted by the Board directly for Classes 10 and 12 for Term I alongwith sample papers and the marking scheme on Monday while the dates for the examinations in minor subjects to be conducted by the schools was released on Tuesday. The exams will be held in November- December.

NEW DELHI, Oct 19: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the datesheet of in-person (offline) first term examination of Classes 10 and 12 of 2021-22 academic session.

The first term examination for major subjects for Class 12 students will be held from December 1 to 22 and for Class 10 students from November 30 till December 11. The details of the examinations have been put out on the CBSE website.

While the schedule of offline examination for Classes 10 and 12 in major subjects to be held by the Board directly was announced on Monday, the same for minor subjects which will be conducted by the schools concerned was announced on Tuesday.

In view of the constraints posed by the covid pandemic and the unpredictable situation prevailing, the Board had changed the format of the usual single year-end examination into two terms for the academic year 2021-22. Each term covers 50% of the syllabus and the half-yearly examination is being held at the end of each six-month term. The forthcoming first term examination will be of 90-minute papers with multiple choice questions only. It will be held from 11:30 am instead of the earlier 10:30 am because of winter.

The Board had earlier released Classes 12 and 10 sample papers and the marking scheme for the Term-I examinations on their website.

Minor subjects exams by schools

The Board will conduct the examination in 19 major subjects for Class 12 and 9 major subjects for Class 10. The schools will conduct the examinations for the 95 minor subjects offered in Class 12 and 66 minor subjects offered in Class 10. However, the question papers for minor subjects will also be set by the Board and the datesheet sent to the schools. These examinations will begin on November 16 for Class 12 and November 17 for Class 10.

The marks obtained in the first term will be added to the marks obtained in the second term to declare the results.

Own school as centre

In order to ensure the safety of the students against the threat of covid, this time they will not have to travel to new centres and the they will write their examinations in their own schools in a familiar environment and not travelling far to new places.

CBSE Controller of Examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj told newsmen that external observers will be assigned to each centre so that the examination is conducted “safely, fairly and without any untoward incidents.”

This is the first time the CBSE is holding the examination after March 2020 when schools were shut and the examinations abruptly ended halfway as covid pandemic swept the world. The 2020-21 examinations could not be held because of a second wave of covid and the results were declared based on previous examinations and internal assessment.

The second term Board examination of the current academic year will be held in March-April 2022, with a three-hour subjective and objective type question paper, if the covid situation permits.

And the results, hopefully, will be based on both the termly examinations and internal assessments.

WARNING: The CBSE has clarified that the students should not depend on social media for the examination details and that for the authenticity of any information they should always verify the same on the CBSE's official website. (IndiaTravelTimes has verified and found some reputed websites are giving wrong exam dates. Especially in view of covid that has limited one's free movement, the students, numbering several lakhs, depend on online contents.)
