Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty about board exams for 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 are two examinations before a committee – they are referred to as Term I and Term II exams. Each examination is held 50 percent on the curriculum that is made available to the students in the mentioned semester.
The exams at the end of the semester last 90 minutes. CBSE creates the questionnaire and sends it to the schools together with the assessment scheme. The exams are conducted under the supervision of external center superintendents and observers appointed by CBSE. The grades of the two semesters I and II are included in the overall grade of the students. Term-I will take place in November-December, while Term-II will take place from March-April.
The examination regulations have also changed. The CBSE Term-I exams will contain MCQs, including case-based MCQs and Assertion-Reasoning MCQs, while Paper-II will contain questions in various formats. If the situation is not favorable in March 2022, the schools will hold a two-hour exam in the second semester.
According to the new criteria, the curriculum for the academic session 2021-22 will be divided into two semesters. Each semester, 50 percent of the curriculum is covered. Technical experts and the board of directors conduct examinations at the end of each semester based on the two-part curriculum. The board has decided to streamline its curriculum.
Internal assessment should be given more weight, schools should create a student profile
Not only the Term I and II exams, the internal assessment is given more credit and data collection begins at the beginning of the new academic year. Schools create a student profile for all exams that are held during the year.
The focus will increase on the internal assessment and these reviews will be useful in case the COVID-19 situation does not allow in the next year.
For grades 9 to 10, three periodic tests, student enrichment, portfolio and practical work, speaking listening exercises are carried out. For grades 11 and 12, the internal assessment includes unit tests at the end of each topic, exploratory activities, internships and projects.
CBSE will make it easier for schools to upload internal assessment points to the CBSE IT platform. The platform will be used by schools this year to upload the grades of students in grades 11 and 12.
Detailed guidelines for internal assessment for all subjects will be published along with a streamlined, semester-by-semester curriculum for the 2021-22 session.
The board would also provide additional resources, including sample assessments, questionnaires, teacher training, etc., for more reliable and valid internal assessments.
Schools will continue to teach remotely or online for the new sessions. Online lessons will continue “until the authorities allow face-to-face teaching in schools.”
CBSE said in an official statement that the new criteria “are in line with the Board’s continued focus on assessing mandatory learning outcomes by making exams based on competencies and core concepts, student-centered, transparent, technology-driven and pre-equipped with alternatives” . for different future scenarios “
