Will CBSE, CISCE Term 2 exams be canceled due to the increase in Covid-19 cases? What do the rules say, what do the students demand?

Is the term two exams for CBSE and Will CISCE advice be canceled if the number of covid-19 cases increases? Amid rising coronavirus cases, part of students and teachers are calling for exams to be cancelled. While the exams should start from April 26, less than a week from the end, are these requests valid?

According to the rules, there are chances that in the event of a high number of coronavirus infections, the council’s second term exams will be postponed or even canceled. When the CBSE announced that it would be holding two exams, in its official notice the Board had said that if there was another wave of the covid-19 pandemic, the final result would be calculated based on the exams of the first quarter and internal evaluation.

If this happens, it wouldn’t be the first time. In 2021, the board was unable to hold any exams due to the pandemic. Also in 2020, exams had to be stopped mid-term due to the first wave of the covid-19 pandemic. It was after huge disruptions in its examination and assessment system that CBSE had decided to take not one but two exams for the 2022 batch.

Even if currently the covid-19 situation is not so serious, many students and academicians want the 2nd semester exams to be cancelled. They not only want term 2 to be canceled, but that a large part of the end result be attributed to internal evaluation.

The CBSE had asked schools to collect data from the start of the new school year. Schools were asked to create a student profile for all assessments made during the year. For class 10, three periodic tests, student enrichment, portfolio and practical work, and oral listening activities had to be carried out. For class 12, the internal assessment would include unit tests at the end of each subject, exploratory activities, practical work and projects. While CBSE has yet to announce the exact weighting, Term 1, Term 2 and internal assessment will combine to create results, according to official information so far.
