CBSE Term 1: Earlier this week, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the date sheet of Term 1 board examinations for students of Classes 10 and 12 (academic year 2021-22).

On Wednesday, 20 October, the board released an important notice regarding the examination venue. The notice states that students who are not in the same city as their schools, will be allowed to request for a change in examination centre.

"It has come to the notice of the board that some students are still not in the city of their school where they had taken admission and are residing somewhere else. In view of the above, at an appropriate time CBSE will inform the students to make a request to their respective schools to change the city of examination centre," said Sanyam Bhardwaj, CBSE Examination Controller, as quoted by The Hindu.


He further directed the schools to follow instructions given by the CBSE to forward the request to the board in an online system.

Therefore, students are advised to keep visiting CBSE's website for further updates regarding change in examination centre.

CBSE Term 1 board exams for Class 10 (major subjects) are scheduled to begin from 30 November 2021, while Class 12 board exams (for major subjects) will be held from 1 December 2021.

Earlier this year, CBSE announced its decision to divide board exams in two terms. The Term 1 exams will be followed by Term 2 or Term end exam, which are scheduled to take place in March-April 2022.
