For the 2021-22 academic year, the CBSE had introduced a bifurcated format with two terms: Term-I And Term-2

The decision was taken after the board exams for the 2020-21 academic year had to be cancelled due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Term-I board exams were held in November-December last year, while the Term-II exams are scheduled to start on April 26.

It is learnt that more weightage will be given to the Term-II exams.

Now CBSE has decided to restore the pre-pandemic single-exam format from the next academic year

This means the Class X and XII board exams are not likely to be split into two parts, according to sources in the Ministry of Education.

CBSE Said that it was one time formula to conduct exams in term wise pattern.

Now that schools are functioning in full capacity, the decision, for now, is to stick to the one-time exam format, said the official.
