Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has today, October 18, 2021, released the Class 12 term 1 date sheet on the official website cbse.nic.in. This date sheet is for the newly-started academic year 2021-22. The education board is all set to conduct the first-term board exams during the November -December 2021 period. Under the current circumstances, board exams will be conducted offline. The official schedule has been uploaded on CBSE’s portal for candidates’ reference. Just to be on the safer side, candidates are instructed to take a printout of the datesheet for reference. While the entire schedule is easily accessible, here’s an overview of what candidates need to know –
In an unprecedented scene of events, CBSE will be conducting two board exams this year, for both Class 10 and 12 students. While the first-term exam will begin in November 2021, the second-term exams will be held in the February-March 2022 period. The exact dates for the second term will be notified in due course of time. Here is the official CBSE Class 12 Term-I schedule –
The Class 12 first term exams 2021 will be held in the offline, objective-based format for a duration of 90 minutes. Due to the winter season and severe weather conditions in many states, the exam will be held from 11:30 am onwards rather than 10:30 am.
After the successful conduction of Term -I exams, results will be announced in the form of a marksheet without disclosing whether a student has passed or failed the MCQ-based test. Final results will be announced after the conduction of Term-II board exams next year.
CBSE has also stated that minor or less-important subjects will be held first followed by the major subjects, in the case of both Class 10 and 12 board exams. Moreover, the education board will be making separate groups of schools offering these subjects and so, more than one subject paper will be held in a day in such schools.
Now that the Term-I board exam datasheet has been released, authorities will soon be issuing roll numbers or admit cards to Class 10 and 12 students. Admit cards will mention the exam centre details, reporting time and other crucial information. While admit cards will be issued to schools, it is the responsibility of schools to deliver them to their students.
Now that less than a month’s time is left for the CBSE Term-I 2021-22 board exams, candidates must gear up their engines and focus on revising the portion as much as possible. Since this term is objective-based, there is no room for guesswork. Accuracy is definitely the key!
