The data sheet was prepared by avoiding nearly 40,000 subject combinations to ensure that no two-subject combinations fall on the same date, the CBSE notice says.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the schedule of the Board Exams for Classes 10 and 12. Exams for both classes will start on February 15.
- While Class 10 students will appear for final exam on March 21, Class 12 Council exams will end on April 5.
- The data sheet was prepared by avoiding nearly 40,000 subject combinations to ensure that no two-subject combinations fall on the same date, the CBSE notice says.
- The State Ministry of Education, Annapurna Devi, told Lok Sabha earlier this month that at least 40% of CBSE Class 10 exam questions and 30% of Class 12 exams by 2023 will be competency-based.
- These questions will include various formats such as Objective Type, Construct Response Type, Claim and Reasoning, and Case.
- “In accordance with NEP-2020, the CBSE has introduced competency-based questions in class 10 and 12 board exams to reform the exam scheme. These questions include various formats, such as objective type, constructive response type, affirmation and reasoning, and case-based format,” she informed parliament.
- Class 10 exams will start with Painting, Rai, Gurung, Sherpa, Thai and Tamang and end with Mathematics (Basic and Standard). Class 12 will start with entrepreneurship and end with psychology. Unlike in 2022, when exams were taken in two parts, the CBSE will now run single-panel exams.
- Most exams will last three hours and end at 1:30 p.m., while some will last two hours and end at 12:30 p.m. Last term, the CBSE results for Class 10 and 12 were announced in July, with Class 12 having an overall pass rate of 92.71% and 94.40% students passing the Class 10 exam.
