The upcoming CBSE Term II Board Exams are indeed a hot topic in the academic domain in the present and hence, misleading and fake news reports are aplenty. Acknowledging this point, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released a public notice on the official portal cbse.nic.in. In the notice, the board has advised students to follow only the official website rather than believing in misleading information published online. CBSE has already announced the Term II syllabus and pattern for both Class 10 and 12. Hence, there is no need to succumb to rumor-mongering under eye-catching headlines.
In the public notice, CBSE talked about certain media platforms circulating misleading information online and invariably, creating confusion among students. They make use of click-baiting phrases like –
Such news articles are often misleading and spread false information about the CBSE Term II Class 10 and 12 board exams. However, the board has advised students to not believe such rumors and instead, stick to the announcements made on the official website cbse.nic.in. Furthermore, CBSE had already announced the changes in board pattern through a circular dated July 05, 2021. Hence, there is no need in believing such baseless rumors.
As of now, the CBSE Term I Board Exams 2021-22 have already been conducted for Class 10 and 12 students. The Term II exams will be held preferably in the March-April 2022 period. Format and pattern for Term II have already been released on CBSE’s academic website i.e., cbseacademic.nic.in.
The CBSE Term II Board Exam 2021-22 exams will only cover the rationalized second term syllabus specified by the board. This syllabus will make up only 50% of the actual portion, in the case of both Class 10 and 12. Each exam will be held for a duration of 2 hours, comprising of open-ended short and long answer-type questions.
In case a full-fledged theoretical exam is not possible due to the prevailing situation in the country, a 90-minute MCQ-based exam will be held for Class 10 and 12 students. Of course, the marks of the Term II exam will be incorporated into the final score.
With the start of 2022, students are ardently waiting for CBSE to announce the Class 10 and 12 date sheet for Term II exams. Under the current circumstances of an impending third-wave and omicron-scare, the board will take a few days’ time to decide on a definite schedule.
