With term II board examinations starting on Tuesday amid a spike in daily Covid cases, the CBSE has said it will prepare final results of students based on their scores in any one of the term exams in case they are forced to be absent for the other.

For the 2021-2022 academic session, the CBSE split its rationalised syllabus in half across two terms and decided to conduct board exams at the end of each. The first-term examination was held in November-December 2021, and the term II examination is set to begin Tuesday for both classes X and XII. The scores of both these exams will contribute to final result, which will be released after the end of term II examinations.

In a meeting with heads of schools on the modalities of the Term II examination on Monday, Controller of Examinations Sanyam Bharadwaj said that in the event students were not able to write the term I examination and will write the term II examination, or the other way around, their results will be prepared on the basis of their performance in the term examination they have appeared in.

He also stated that the board is exploring the possibilities of how results can be computed in case a student comes down with Covid during a part of their Term II examination.

“If they have been able to appear in three-four exams and then suffered from Covid, or if they suffered from Covid initially and were finally able to appear for their exams, what will be done will be decided by the board at an appropriate time. But we will decide each and everything in favour of students,” he said.
