The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to reinstate the pre-pandemic single annual exam format for Class X and Class XII from the next academic year, reported The Indian Express.

CBSE had earlier introduced a bifurcated format with two terms for Class X and XII board, in which Term-I board exams were held in November-December last year, while the Term-II exams are scheduled to commence from April 26.

This format was adopted after the board exams for the 2020-21 academic year had to be cancelled due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Evaluation was based on students’ scores in previous exams, practical exams and internal assessments.

According to a report in The Indian Express, “the board decided to restore the single-exam pattern after receiving representations from schools. ‘CBSE never announced that the two-term exam format will be continued henceforth. It was a one-time formula. Now that schools are functioning in full capacity, the decision, for now, is to stick to the one-time exam format, said an official of Ministry of Education.’”
