CBSE to conduct offline board exams from Apr 26 | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education has said that the Term 2 exams for Classes 10 and 12 will begin from April 26. The exams will be held in offline mode and students will be allotted exam centres like earlier.
For the 2021-22 academic session, the board had decided to change the assessment system due to the Covid-19 pandemic and divided it into two terms. The Term 1 exams, which were completed in November and December, had multiple choice questions while Term 2 will have subjective-type questions.
However, the CBSE is yet to announce the results of the Term 1 exams and hasn’t clearly stated if the results will be declared now or later.
ICSE and ISC results were declared on February 7.
Issuing a circular on Wednesday, the board said, “The board, after discussions with various stakeholders and taking into consideration the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the country, has decided to conduct the Term 2 examination in offline mode. The Term 2 theory examinations will commence from 26 April 2022.”
It said that the pattern of the question papers will be the same as that of samples on the board website.
“Students will appear for the examination at the allotted centres as done during the preceding years. The date-sheet for Classes 10 and 12 will be released soon and the same will be available on the board’s website. Messages/information spreading on social media may be considered only after verifying the facts available on the board’s website,” the circular added.
In Term 1, private school students gave exams at their own schools while government school students were allotted centres. A majority of the evaluation was conducted in the schools itself. For some Class 12 papers, the board asked schools to submit it to the CBSE.
Welcoming the announcement by the board, Jyoti Arora, principal of Mount Abu Public School, Rohini, and president of Sahodaya, a group of private schools, said they will be conducting orientations for teachers.
“Good time has been given to finish the syllabus and prepare for Term 2 examinations,” said Arora.
Even students were relieved after the notification but many were questioning when Term 1 exam results would be declared.
