CBSE has extended the last date of registration for 10th and 12th board exams for private students from 22 February to 25 February. The students who have not yet filled their registration form, can fill the online application by going to the official website of CBSE.
The board exam of CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 will be held from 4th May 2021 to 10th June 2021. The exam for class 12 will be held in 2 shifts to wrap up the examination in comparatively fewer days.
The CBSE exam schedule was 45 days in the year 2020 but this year, the exam schedule is of total 39 days. Hence, six days less than the previous year will be taken to complete the exam this year.
However, it has been claimed by the board that the students will get sufficient time in between 2 main subjects for the proper preparation of the examinations.
The registration process of the exam for candidates was to continue till 22nd February 2021 earlier. According to the official note that CBSE has released, the last date for the registration for board exams for the private candidates has been shifted to 25th February 2021.
So, the candidates who have not done the registration yet should visit the website “cbse.gov.in” and do their registration as soon as possible.
The CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 Board Exams’ syllabus has also been reduced by 30%, keeping in mind the loss of instructional time because of the COVID-19 pandemic situation, so that the candidates do not feel stressed.
The result of the board exams for both CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 is expected to be released by 15th July 2021 (tentatively), as informed by Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, the Honourable Education Minister earlier. Also, the examinations will contain more application-based questions than the exams held until last year.
The application-based questions or MCQs were introduced by the board last year. The Education Ministry had informed in an official notice that the competency-based questions would be increased by 10% for class 10 and class 12 in a phased manner each year.
Furthermore, the new National Curriculum Framework under National Education Policy 2020 suggests that for Sanskrit & English languages, CBSE should offer 2-level exams. Currently, the Maths exam is being conducted in 2-level for class 10, viz. standard and primary levels.
