Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to begin the Term 2 practical exams 2022 for both Class 10 and 12 tomorrow, March 02, 2022. Schools affiliated with the board will be organizing these practical exams for their students. However, they will be required to follow all COVID-19 protocols specified by the Health Ministry. For Class 10 students, the practical component will be assessed by schools. However, Class 12 students will be assessed by external examiners.
As per the official CBSE circular, schools have been advised to divide their Class 10 and 12 students into batches of 10. So that while 10 students are completing their lab work, the other batch will be busy finishing up their pen-and-paper work.

Before tomorrow’s CBSE Term 2 Practical Exam 2022, candidates must take note of certain important exam-day guidelines. These are mentioned below –

In addition to exam-day guidelines, students must also take a look at certain CBSE Term 2 2022 last-minute tips mentioned below –

3. Don’t try to skip the trickier experiments. Read each experiment procedure carefully to gain more clarity.
4. Only stick to the syllabus specified for practicals. Don’t waste time preparing concepts that are least likely to come in the internal assessment.
