CBSE is going to release the CBSE class 10 term 1 date sheet 2021-22 on the official website, cbse.gov.in. The board has decided to give more weightage to the marks scored in the first term if the covid -19 situation deteriorates like the previous year. Earlier, the board has released the sample papers for class 10 such that candidates get an idea of the paper layout.
The CBSE term 1 date sheet is expected to be out anytime soon till mid-October 2021. However, as per reports, term 1 is going to be held from November to December 2021 while term 2 is scheduled between March and April 2022. The questions in the term 1 exams are going to be based on the MCQ pattern and case-based reasoning questions and the duration of the exam is kept at 90 minutes. While questions in CBSE class 10th term 2 will be more situation-based and open-end. Along with this, the candidates may find more short and long answer based questions in term 2. It has been decided to keep the exam duration of the second term fixed to 2 hours.
However, in case, towards the end of the second term, the pandemic strikes again, then the board will resort to the exam pattern decided for term 1 i.e. MCQ based questions and exam duration is fixed at 90 minutes. “The board is also prepared for the worst situation and if the situation is out of control, then the maximum emphasis will be given to the result of term 1”, quoted CBSE Controller of Examination Sanyam Bhardwaj. However, all such decisions will be taken after doing a review meeting towards the end of the second term.
The board has earlier decided that it will conduct the final exams in two terms, term 1 and term 2. Out of the total syllabus, 50% of the same will be covered in term 1 while the remaining 50% of the syllabus is going to be covered in term 2. The CBSE term 1 datasheet is expected to be released in the upcoming days and once the same is released. The candidates will be required to download the same from the official website and keep a copy of the same with themselves.
CBSE has come together with the Centre of Excellence for BlockChain Technology of the National Informatics Centre for releasing the CBSE class 10 and 12 results.
