The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced syllabi of Classes 9, 10, 11 and 12 for the 2022-23 academic year. Class 10 and Class 12 syllabi have not been divided into two terms, meaning the system has been discontinued.
Managing the set back faced by the students and their learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBSE introduced a term based evaluation system for the students of the batch of 2021. The term 1 exams 2022 were conducted in November-December, 2021 and term 2 exams are scheduled for April-May, 2022, and would be starting soon.
In 2021, CBSE had to follow an alternative assessment scheme as exams got postponed and then cancelled amid the second wave of COVID-19.
The officials of CBSE have already confirmed that the board will go back to the once a year final exam system from the next academic year.
A senior CBSE official had quoted,“The board decided to conduct two term exams for the session 2021-22 in order to avert any unprecedented situation caused by the pandemic. Even as the NEP 2020 favours two-term exams, it has been decided to switch to the previous practice for now and conduct one set of board exams at the end of the academic year. The stakeholders also suggested one exam policy,” to a leading daily.
On Thursday, the CBSE had issued an official notification confirming that the Board Exams would be conducted only once from next academic year onwards. The official notice dated 21st April, 2022 stated“Considering the feedback of stakeholders and other prevailing conditions, the Board will conduct the annual scheme of assessment at the end of the Academic Session 2022-23 and the curriculum has been designed accordingly.”
The board has also released an elaborated syllabus for class 10 and 12 in regards to all the subjects on Thursday. The board has further directed the schools to follow the same and teach students using “suitable teaching-learning strategies such as Art-Integrated Education, Experiential Learning, and Pedagogical Plans etc. wherever possible”
