The Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) will start second semester board exams for more than 35 lakh students from April 26. One day before the board exams, the board will host a live webcast to explain preparations for the exam. The webinar will take place on April 15 starting at 11 a.m. This is important because it is a written exam after about two years.
“Because of Covid-19, in the past exams were not completed and results were reported based on tabulation policies. As a result, not all of us have been fully involved in the review process and therefore may not be aware of many important issues. This required all officials to be assisted by the Council in communicating important information so that the reviews could proceed smoothly,” the council said in an official notice.
New CBSE President Vineet Joshi will begin the keynote during the webinar. The webinar, CBSE claims, will fully equip attendees with the skills needed to complete exams. “It will also eliminate all future complications and the Council, with your help, would be able to complete the examinations.” Participation in this webinar is mandatory for all schools. “Together, we will create an example of excellence before the Nation by organizing the exam successfully,” he said.
This is the first time the board has held board exams twice for classes 10 and 12. The 2023 batch of students will also have only one annual exam. CBSE has also revamped the schedule for grades 9-12 for the upcoming academic session. This led to students calling for second semester exams to be canceled, claiming it was unfair for them to show up for the board twice while regrouping before and after having to take the exams only once.
The final results of this year’s CBSE will be prepared based on Term 1, Term 2 and internal assessment. The exact weight of each of these components is not yet mentioned by CBSE. Citing mass cheating in first term exams, students want her to have a low weight.
