No student will be placed in pass, compartment and essential repeat category after term 1 exam, the board has said. The second term exam will be held March-April and the final result of class will be declared after the second term exams are over.
The CBSE board exams will be held in two terms in order to increase the probability of exams. In 2021, board exams could not be held for students due to the sudden surge in Covid cases.
The board had said the exams will be objective and the duration of the tests will be 90 minutes. The exams will start from 11.30am instead of 10.30 am in view of the winter season.
