CBSE Board Class 12 Exam 2021 | Important Update
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has proposed that it will conduct the Class 12 Board examination only for major subjects.
Under the primary choice, the national board has recommended that assessments for the significant subjects be held in the “existing format” and at designated examination centres.
Also, marks for minor subjects can be determined dependent on the performance in the major subjects.
This alternative would require one month of pre-test exercises and two months for directing the tests and presentation of results and an additional 45 days for compartment tests.
Under the second format, which will take only 45 days, the CBSE has proposed that Class 12 students sit for the major subject exams in their own schools (read self-centres), instead of designated centres. The Board has additionally suggested that, under the subsequent configuration, every assessment ought to be of one-and-a half hours rather than three hours.
The question papers should have only objective and short-answer questions. In this scenario, a Class 12 student will appear for one language and three elective (read major) subjects only. The marks for the fifth and sixth subjects will be decided based on the performance in the elective subjects.
For Class 12 Board examinations, the Ministry had said that it will review the situation on June 1 to decide fresh dates and make an announcement at least two weeks before the start of the exams.
Sunday’s meeting with state governments has been called to decide which of the two options proposed by CBSE should be implemented.
