New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has divided the 2021-22 board exam into two terms. The date sheets for term 1 board exams for Class X and XII students will be released on October 18. The exams will take place in November-December, 2021. This will be an objective-type exam and each will have a duration of 90 minutes, the board said.
To avoid the learning loss of students, the board has also decided to divide subjects of Class X and XII into two groups – minor and major subjects.
CBSE board exams are conducted for 189 papers. The board said if it conducts exams for all subjects of Class X and XII at one go, it will take 40-45 days to complete. The board will first conduct board exams for the minor subjects, followed by the major subjects.
“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 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.
Term 2 exams will be conducted in March-April, 2022. The second term papers will have both objective and subjective questions.
