In addition to its previously announced new assessment strategy, the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released its updated term-by-term syllabus for Classes 9 to 12 for the academic year of 2021-22. The whole curriculum has been shortened, according to the most recent version. 50 percent of the whole curriculum will be finished in Term I, and the remaining 50 percent will be completed in Term II.
Following this, students would be required to appear for the Term End Examinations. Multiple-choice questions (MCQ) will be used in Term I, whereas subjective and MCQ-based questions will be used in Term II. In addition, the board will distribute sample papers for the new curriculum in due time.
Meanwhile, the CBSE has instructed all of the board's schools to distribute term-by-term syllabuses and instructions to all instructors and students. This is so that board examinations and internal assessments or projects can be conducted in accordance with the new policy.
CBSE Revised Revaluation Method - What it Entails?
The board revealed the revised evaluation method for next year's Class 10 and 12 tests earlier this month as a precautionary move to prevent cancelling the exams, as it did this year, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Multiple-choice questions (MCQ) will be included in the term 1 exams, including case-based MCQs and MCQs of the assertion-reasoning kind. The test will be 90 minutes long and will cover 50 percent of the rationalized syllabus.
Case-based, situation-based, open-ended short answer and long answer type questions will be included in the Term 2 exam question paper, which will last two hours. “This is done to increase the probability of having a board-conducted Classes 10 and 12 examinations at the end of the academic session,” CBSE has stated in the latest announcement.
