Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), is an organisation governed by the Government of India, that manages the quality of education in private and government aided affiliated schools.

It conducts class 10th and 12th Board exams every year. In the last one year, partly due to the covid pandemic, CBSE has brought forward some major changes in the pattern of its examinations, syllabus and its format.

Here are all the details with completely updated information regarding class 12 Board exams-

  1. Board exams will now be conducted in two terms. The first term will be held in November-December and second term in March-April.
  2. Term 1 exams will consist of multiple choice objective type questions called MCQs. Other types of questions like Case-Based and Assertion-Reason type will be included in that.
  3. 50% of the total NCERT syllabus will be covered in term 1 and the duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.
  4. Term 2 exams will follow the subjective type pattern as earlier. It will include case-based questions, the usual short answer and long answer type questions, derivations etc.
  5. The remaining 50% of the NCERT syllabus only will be covered in Term 2 and the duration of this exam will be 2 hours.

Other Important Details

  1. In case both terms for the year 2021-22 are conducted online due to pandemic, the final marks will be computed also on the basis of internal assessments, practicals, projects and theory of term 1 and 2 to maintain the accuracy and reliability of the result.
  2. CBSE has laid an e-Pareeksha Portal for exam related activities. Students of Class 10 and Class 12 can access the portal at this link and get all updates regarding their exams like time, date or any changes if they are made, directly on their mail or mobile number after registering at the website.

    Since the format of the exam has changed completely, solving previous year papers may not be of much help for practicing things like speed and accuracy.

    But with e-pariksha, students can also practice the test papers in the new format and also compare their performance through different reports like time taken on each question, question wise solution, etc.
  3. CBSE has announced that it will not charge examination fee as well as registration fee for the students who have lost their parents in the covid pandemic.
