SCHOOL BOARD EXAMS NEW SCHEME

CBSE CLASS IX & X (TERM-I)

CBSE Class IX Syllabus has been revised according to the new CBSE scheme announced by the board for the academic session 2021-2022. The revised CBSE syllabus includes a term-wise curriculum. The total Theory Examinations (Term I & II) will be of 80 marks and 20 marks weightage shall be for Internal Assessment (Term I & II). 

The syllabus for the Academic session 2021-22 will be divided into 2 terms by following a systematic approach by looking into the interconnectivity of concepts and topics by the Subject Experts and the Board will conduct examinations at the end of each term on the basis of the bifurcated syllabus. This is done to increase the probability of having a Board conducted classes X and XII examinations at the end of the academic session.

Term I Examinations: 

∙ The Board will organize Term I Examination in a flexible schedule to be conducted between November-December 2021 with a window period of 4-8 weeks for schools situated in different parts of country and abroad.

∙ The responses of students will be captured on OMR sheets which, after scanning may be directly uploaded at CBSE portal or alternatively may be evaluated and marks obtained will be uploaded by the school on the very same day. 

∙ At the end of the second term, the Board would organize Term II or Yearend Examination based on the rationalized syllabus of Term II only (i.e. approximately 50% of the entire syllabus). 

∙ This examination would be held around March-April 2022 at the examination centres fixed by the Board.

 ∙ The paper will be of 2 hours duration and have questions of different formats (case-based/ situation based, open ended- short answer/ long answer type). 

∙ In case the situation is not conducive for normal descriptive examination a 90 minute MCQ based exam will be conducted at the end of the Term II also.
