With the CBSE board examinations right around the corner, students must leave no stone unturned for the preparation of the exam. The right preparation strategy is important to crack the exam, however, students must also know all about the exam as well like the exam pattern, marking scheme, passing marks, etc. This will help them to understand how to start preparing and how to write answers for the examination.
This year, due to COVID-19, the board made some changes to reduce mental pressure for the students and make up for the academic loss suffered by them. The syllabus for the CBSE exam for classes 9 to 12 has been reduced by up to 30 percent.
Earlier, there were various social media reports as per which it was stated that the passing marks for the Class 10 and Class 12 exams have been reduced. However, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) issued a clarification regarding the upcoming board exam 2021. Students are informed that the passing marks for CBSE classes 10 and 12 have not been reduced.
However, a piece of essential information for class 10th students is that no one will fail in the examination thanks to the skilled subject. This means that if a student fails in any of the three elective subjects which are Science, Mathematics, and Social Science, then the failed subject will be replaced by the ‘Skill Subject’.
The questions of the exams will be based on the reduced syllabus as per the 2020 curriculum. Hence, now the students will have to study for the examination as per the revised syllabus and the questions are going to be asked from that portion only.
This year, about 3 lakh students registered from the Delhi region for the CBSE 10th board exam, whereas over 2.5 lakh candidates registered for the Class 12 board exam.
The board earlier released the revised timetable for class 10 and 12 students. As per the revised schedule, CBSE 10th examination is going to be held from May 4 to June 07, 2021. As far as the major changes are concerned, the class 12 physics exam is postponed. The exam was earlier scheduled to be held on May 13 but would now be held on June 8, 2021. Moreover, the dates for the History and Banking exams have also been revised. On the other hand for the class 10 examination, the exam for Science and Mathematics has been postponed. CBSE 10th Science paper would now be held on May 21, and the Maths exam is going to be conducted on June 2.
