CBSE term 2 board exams started: Over 7,400 centers, 18 students in one room
For the 2021-2022 academic session, CBSE has decided to split the 12th syllabus into half across two terms and organize the board exam at the end of each term.
With term II, the board exam has started today, 26th April 2022; amid a spike in Covid cases, CBSE has decided to prepare students’ results based on any one of the terms in case they are absent for the other term due to health issues.
For the 2021-2022 academic session, CBSE has decided to split the 12th syllabus into half across two terms and organize the board exam at the end of each term. CBSE has organized the first term examination in November and December 2021, and the term II examination is set to start Tuesday for both classes X and XII. The score of both the terms will be calculated together, and then the final result will be released at the end of Term 11 examinations.
In a meeting, Sanyam Bhardwaj, Controller of Examinations, said that if the students who have written term- 1 examination and will not write term 11 examination and vice-versa, their result will be prepared on their performance in the term they have appeared for.
He has also stated that the board will check the possibilities of how they can compute a result of the student who is down with Covid during the term 11 examinations.
“If they have been able to appear in three-four exams and then suffered from Covid, or if they suffered from Covid initially and were finally able to appear for their exams, what will be done will be decided by the board at an appropriate time. But we will decide each and everything in favour of students, “he said.
He stated that CBSE would not be going to prepare results for those who have not appeared for both the terms. As private or regular candidates, such students have to sit for the academic session again next year.
As the examinations begin, Covid cases are increasing! The board has directed that 18 students will be seated in one room. The board is giving Rs 5,000 per day to the examination center and Rs 5 per student per day for sanitizing the school, keeping soap, offering sanitizers, etc., so that your school can be secure from the Covid cases.
