Central Office Wed. Education It has not yet been decided whether the 2022-23 training session will remain divided into two semesters for 10th and 12th grades, or whether it will return to the single-board exam, officials said Friday.
The dichotomy of the study session, the holding of two exams at the end of the semester and the rationalization of the curriculum were part of a special scheme for assessing the exams of 10th and 12th grades in 2021-22, announced CBSE as a “one-time measure” given the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, whether the same system will remain in the new training session or not has not yet been decided.
“The decision to hold board exams in two terms was taken taking into account the unprecedented situation of the pandemic, when in the academic session of 2020-2021 students had to be assessed using an alternative assessment scheme, as not board exams could be held. The move was announced as a one-off measure, “said a senior board official.
“The decision on whether to extend it until the new training session or not will be made at a certain time,” he added.
According to the distribution system, the first semester took place in December last year, and the second semester should start on April 26.
