CBSE to return to single board exam pattern next year



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to switch to its pre-pandemic single-exam format for classes 10 and 12, according to reports. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBSE bifurcated the academic session, holding two term-end exams for the 2021-22 academic year. The Term-I board exams were held in November-December last year, while the Term-II exams are scheduled to start on April 26.

The decision also comes at a time when class 12 board results will no longer be factored in for admissions to all central and several state universities. The Central Universities Entrance Test 2022 has been made mandatory for students looking to pursue any undergraduate (UG) and integrated postgraduate (PG) courses. Recently, UGC (University Grants Commission) chairman M. Jagadesh Kumar held a virtual interaction with the heads of several deemed-to-be universities from across the country, and asked them to be a part of CUET.
