The 90-minute Term 1 examinations will consist of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) based on the first half of the syllabus.
The Term 2 examination, scheduled to be held in March-April next year, will consist of long and short answer-type questions. They will be conducted at exam centres fixed by the CBSE. The duration of the examination was declared as two hours. However, “in case the situation is not conducive for normal descriptive examinations,” the Term 2 tests will also be conducted in the form of a 90-minute MCQ paper.
The CBSE had decided against conducting one final exam at the end of the academic year 2021-22. Instead, it had opted to bifurcate the academic session into two terms and conduct exams at the end of each term.
