About Exam

CBSE class 12

The Assessment scheme will have theory, internal assessment or practical components as per syllabus given for each subject. Board shall conduct Annual examinations for class XII.
As the Board is progressively allowing more space to 'learning outcome based' assessment in place of textbook driven assessment, question papers of Board examinations will have more questions based on real-life situations requiring students to apply, analyse, evaluate and synthesize information as per the stipulated outcomes. The core-competencies to be assessed in all questions, however, will be from the prescribed syllabus and textbooks recommended therein. This will eliminate predictability and rote learning to a large extent.

This year board exam will be in two terms

(1) Term-1

(2) Term-2

Final result will be made by the term-1 and term-2 score.
