CBSE class 10 & 12 Term 2 board exams 2022: As India reviews rising cases of Omicron in all states, students nationwide from CBSE and CISCE boards are demanding the cancellation of term 2 board exams for classes 10 and 12 to be held in 2022.
Students believe that in the current situation, taking exams offline will affect their health with COVID-19.
As of now, the CBSE and CISCE boards are yet to announce the dates for the second semester 2022 exams. However, the CBSE Board confirmed earlier that the second term exams will not be held only if the COVID-19 scenario looks better in the country.
Meanwhile, states like Assam, Bihar, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra have decided to go ahead with jury exams. However, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh said it would only conduct council reviews taking into account the COVID-19 situation in the state.
On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh has announced all council exams for grades 10 and 12 after the 2022 assembly elections.
The first quarter of board exams took place in November-December 2021 and the second phase is supposed to take place in March-April 2022.
Board exams are very unlikely to be canceled this year, according to an IANS report. Speaking to IANS, CBSE Controller of Examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj said: “If the situation gets worse, only then the second term of examinations will not be held. Marks obtained in the first phase will be considered final and based on them, the results will be prepared. But if such a situation does not arise and the second term is held successfully, the final result will be decided on the basis of 50-50 per cent marks of these two terms.
Meanwhile, India has already begun vaccination for children between the age of 15-18 years.
Meanwhile, students belonging to the CBSE board can look up sample papers for Class 10 and 12 for the Term 2 board exam 2022 on the official website. CBSE is also to release class 10 and 12 Board Exam 2022 Term 1 exam results soon.
