The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on July 5 announced a new assessment scheme for the academic year 2021-2022 and the move has prompted a slew of reactions online. The board, in a notification issued on Monday, said it will reduce the syllabus and bifurcate the academic session into two terms, with exams at the end of each.
Term I exams will be held in November-December 2021, in Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) format, covering only the first half of the rationalised syllabus.
Term II exams will be held in March-April 2022 at exam centres fixed by the Board. These exams will be two-hour-long papers with questions in different formats. However, the notification also said “in case the situation is not conducive for normal descriptive examinations”, Term II exams too will be in the form of 90-minute MCQ papers.
