The much awaited CBSE class 10 term-1 board exam results and term-2 datesheet for classes 10 and 12 were released this week. However, the CBSE class 10 term-1 results were declared with a twist this time. Meanwhile, several other state boards such as BSEB, HPBOSE, WBCHSE, UP Board and more also released several notifications regarding datesheets, answer keys, revision of exam schedule and more.
Several important notifications from NEET were also released this week, and results for UCEED, CEED, and registrations for other competitive exams also opened. A lot happened in education this week — here’s a recap:
One of the highlights in the education sector this week was the announcement of class 10 board results. However, this was done with a twist. On Friday night, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the class 10 term-1 results. This time, the result has been declared offline and has not been uploaded on the official websites. Students have to collect their term 1 marksheets from respective schools. Due to this, students told indianexpress.com that they missed the fun of checking their scores online with friends and family.
This week, CBSE also announced the datesheet for term-II exams for classes 10 and 12. The exams for both classes will begin on April 26. Students can check the datesheet for board exams on the official CBSE website — cbse.gov.in, cbseresults.nic.in. The Board has made sure that the CBSE Term-II datesheet for Class 12 is designed in such a way that students can easily attempt the JEE Main 2022 exams in May 2022. The exam dates do not clash with any JEE exam and suitable gaps have been provided between each exam.
