CBSE announces special assessment scheme for class board exams.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced on Monday a special assessment scheme for the class 10 and 12 board exams for next year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, dividing the academic session into two periods.
The board has also announced plans to streamline the syllabus for the 2021-22 academic session and make internal assessment and project work more “credible” and “valid.”
According to an official order from Joseph Emmanuel, Director (Academic), CBSE, the first quarter exams will take place in November-December 2021, while the second quarter exams will take place in March-April 2022.
“The syllabus for the academic session 2021-22 will be divided into two terms following a systematic approach by analyzing the interconnectivity of concepts and themes by experts in the field,” he said.
“The Board will conduct examinations at the end of each trimester based on the bifurcated curriculum. This has been done to increase the likelihood that a board will conduct examinations of classes X and XII at the end of the academic session.”, He said.
The 2021-22 board exam agenda will be streamlined in a similar way to that of the last academic call to be notified in July 2021.
Schools will also use an alternate academic calendar and input from NCERT to transact the curriculum.
“Efforts will be made to make the internal, practical evaluation of project work more credible and valid in accordance with the guidelines and moderation policy that will be announced by the board to ensure a fair distribution of ratings,” he added.
The board’s plans are against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic that forced the cancellation of board exams in some subjects last year and the total cancellation of board exams this year.
