The CBSE will hold the board exams 2022 in two terms. The term I will be held in November-December, while term II will be conducted in March-April. CBSE is expected to release the exam datesheet for the first term this week.
The syllabus for both classes 10 and 12 have been reduced by 30 per cent and CBSE has modified the exam pattern accordingly. 50 per cent syllabus will be covered in the first term. The exam will have case-based and assertion-reasoning type multiple-choice questions (MCQs). The question paper is likely to have 40 marks in the MCQs section. The students will have to mark their responses on OMR sheets. The first term exam will be held for 90 minutes.
Further, the board has said more credit will be given to internal assessments and projects. Classes 9 and 10 will have three periodic tests, a student enrichment portfolio, practical work, and speaking listening activities while classes 11 and 12 will have unit tests at end of every topic, exploratory activities, practicals, and projects. As per the CBSE, these exams will be handy in case the COVID-19 situation does not improve next year. The final results would be computed on the basis of the internal assessment, practical, project work, and theory marks of both the term exams.
The board has also prepared practice CBSE class 10 and 12 sample papers based
on the new guidelines, for students to practice. According to the CBSE, the exam pattern has been changed to make it more “student-centric, transparent, technology-driven, and advance provision of alternatives for different future scenarios."
