CBSE divides in two parts

Observing the current COVID 19 crisis, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a new assessment scheme for Class 10 and 12 standards. The board has reduced the syllabus and has divided the academic sessions into two parts during the year 2021-22.

It will also record internal assessment scores, which will help to calculate the final results and make assessments during the year, the CBSE issued a notification on Monday.

The board has taken this decision due to the uncertainty emerging due to the pandemic. “The syllabus for the Board examination 2021-22 will be rationalized similar to that of the last academic session,” said the notification. Last year, the examination syllabus was reduced by 30%.

CBSE is asking schools to assess Class 10,11 and 12 scores and internal marks on a combination of these three years to calculate the final results. However, the board has divided the 2021-22 academic session into two parts. 50% of the syllabus will be covered in each term.

The first term exam is flexible and is scheduled between November-December 2021. It will be a 90 minute paper with multiple choice questions and will be conducted in schools under the supervision of external superintendents. However, the second term exam will be held in March-April 2022 in examination centres, and is likely to be a 2-hour exam with various question formats.

If the COVID crisis doesn’t settle down, the CBSE will also conduct a second term with multiple choice questions. For instance, if the pandemic persists and the third wave comes then it is expected that the first-term exams will be held online or in homes. The second-term exam will not be held and the weightage will be based on the first term exam scores and internal assessment marks.
