When will CBSE board exams be held twice a year?

It is being told that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is also working on a detailed plan in line with the recommendations of the National Education Policy and the guidelines of the Ministry of Education. In this regard, Sanjay Kumar, Secretary of the School Department, held a meeting with the principals of the schools along with CBSE officials and experts.

When can board exams be conducted twice a year? School principals will also give their opinion on this. Recently UGC has approved the rule of admission twice a year. To reduce the stress of students, priority is being given to giving maximum options to the students.

Ruma Pathak, Principal of MM Public School, Pitampura, said that all the questions related to education policy and NCF were answered in this meeting. The School Education Secretary has appealed to the schools to create APAAR ID for the students, so that they can get its benefits in future. Along with this, government and private schools can learn best practices from each other. Schools should focus on NCERT books. The principal says that the decision of board exams twice a year will be very beneficial for the students and they will be able to choose the best score from both the exams.

NBT Lens: The real challenge will be choosing the window

The Ministry of Education and CBSE are working on conducting board exams twice a year. The real challenge before them is what will be the window for both the exams? Currently, board exams start from February 15 and continue till late March or early April and after that the results are declared in May-June. Engineering exams are also held twice, currently medical entrance exams are held once.

In such a situation, the timing of the first and second board exams will be very important. According to sources, there is no possibility of a semester system. It will not be mandatory for students to take both board exams. It will depend on them whether they will take one exam or both. The exam reforms also include a number of questions in the board exam pattern and simplification of the examination process.
