CBSE 10th & 12th Boards: Term Wise Exams Discontinued

The official notification from the board confirmed that there will be no term wise exams for classes 10 and 12 from the next academic session (2022-23).

The Board had divided the exams into two terms during the COVID-19 pandemic. The term 1 exams were held from November- December 2021 and the term 2 exams are scheduled for April-May 2022.

The term 1 exam was based on 50% syllabus and the term 2 exams were a combination of objective and subjective questions. This system was prepared so that the board is left with at least one term to prepare the results at the end of the academic year.

Since the COVID cases have reduced, the CBSE has decided to switch back to the old format of conducting one board exam per year.
