CBSE to follow different assessment criteria for class 10, 12 board exams 2022. Schools to create a portfolio of every student, internal assessment to get huge weightage.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty around board exams from the past two years, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has changed the way it holds board exams. For the academic batch 2021-22, there will be two board exams – it will be called term-I and term-II exams, respectively. Each exam will be held on 50 per cent syllabus delivered to students in the said term.
The term-end exams will be of 90-minutes duration. CBSE will set the question paper and send it to the schools along with the marking scheme. The exams will be conducted under the supervision of external center superintendents and observers appointed by CBSE. Marks of both term-I and II will be contributed in the final overall score of students. The term-I will be held in November-December while the term-II will be held in March-April.
Internal Assessment to have more Weightage, Schools to Create Student Profile
Not Just the term-I and II exams, the internal assessment will be given more credit, and data collection will start from the beginning of the new academic year onwards. Schools will create a student profile for all assessments undertaken over the year.
The focus will increase on internal assessment and these exams will be handy in case the COVID-19 situation does not approve in the next year.
