NEW DELHI : Notwithstanding the liberal grading system and subsequent throat completion in college admission, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) officially declared on Thursday that the first trimester of the board’s exams Classes 10 and 12 for the 2021-22 school year will be entirely objective and will take place in November and December.
Unlike previously, from this academic year, the jury exams will take place twice and term 1 of the jury exam evaluation will be entirely “objective type” (multiple question type) and will take place in just 90 minutes for each event, the CBSE said Thursday. .
“The exam for trimester 1… will be an objective exam and the duration of this exam would be 90 minutes. The examination of quarter 2 will take place in March-April 2022 … It will be a subjective-objective examination, depending on the state of Covid-19 in the country, ”the CBSE said in a circular.
All exams will start at 11:30 am instead of 10:30 am due to the winter season, and each student will have 20 minutes of reading time before the exam starts. After the exams, scores will be declared, but the final results will be declared after the exams of quarter 2.
The central council said that although more than one minor subject will be conducted per day in a group of schools, each of the major subjects will be conducted per day. All exams will take place in offline mode and exam date details will be shared on Monday. The school board said the first exams for minor subjects would be taken, followed by major subjects.
CBSE offers 114 subjects to students in class 12 and 75 subjects in class 10 and their completion can take up to a minimum of 45 days. “Therefore, to avoid the loss of learning for the students, the CBSE decided that the subject offered by the CBSE would be divided into two parts, namely the main subjects and the secondary subjects. The main subjects being offered by all affiliated schools …
“Regarding minor subjects, CBSE will create a group of schools offering these subjects, so more than one article would be conducted by CBSE in these schools per day.”
There has been criticism of how the liberal CBSE grading system led to a relentless completion of university admission and how several colleges in the University of Delhi have declared a threshold of 100. % for the admission of students in certain fields. And switching to objective-type review modes will only increase this problem.
Earlier this month, DU announced its first cut-off list for undergraduate admissions with top colleges like Shri Ram College of Commerce and Hindu College setting the thresholds at 100% for various courses.
