The board has earlier announced a new plan for class 10 and 12 board exams for the academic year 2021-2022. Instead of one board exam at the end of the year, the academic session has been bifurcated into two terms, with the Board conducting exams at the end of each.

Besides the course content, this syllabus mentions the criteria of assessment of students on the basis of the two board exams policy.

The term I exams are to be held in November-December 2021 and will have Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) covering only the first half of the rationalised syllabus. These exams will be of 90-minute duration. CBSE will send the question papers and the marking schemes to schools, which will conduct the exams under the supervision of external examiners and observers, and send the results to the board.
