In an official statement, CBSE said that the syllabus for the academic session 2021-22 will be divided into two terms by following a systematic approach by looking into the interconnectivity of concepts and topics by the Subject Experts, the board will conduct the examinations at the end of each term on the basis of the bifurcated syllabus.
The syllabus for board exam 2022 will be rationalised similar to that of the last academic session to be notified in July 2021
For academic transactions, however, CBSE schools will follow the curriculum and syllabus released by CBSE on March 31.
Schools will also use alternative academic calendar and inputs from the NCERT on transacting the curriculum.
Efforts will be made to make internal assessments or practicals or project work more credible and valid as per the guidelines and moderation policy to be announced by CBSE.
The plans by the board come against the backdrop of COVID-19 pandemic which forced the cancellation of board exams of some subjects last year and complete cancellation of board exams this year.
