Soon after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the Class 10, 12 Term 1 Results 2022 on March 19, many students expressed their concern over their low scores in Term exams. They have requested the Board to lower the weightage of the Term 1 marks. They are demanding that CBSE set the weightage of both the Terms at 30:70.

What are the Existing CBSE Term 1 and Term 2 Weightage Criteria?

CBSE has not yet officially set the weightage criteria for Term 1 exams 2022, but in a circular issued on March 11, the Board had stated: “weightage of Term 1 and Term 2 will be decided at the time of the declaration of Term II result and accordingly, the final performance will be calculated." Therefore, it is uncertain as of now that CBSE might give equal weightage of both the terms or give more weightage to Term 2 marks and lesser weightage to Term 1 marks.
