As per the earlier announcement, the CBSE Board and the Union Ministry of Education may hold Term 2 of the 10th and 12th board examinations in the month of March-April. Also as reported earlier, the chances of the second term of the board examination getting cancelled this year are very slim as health experts had earlier mentioned that the third wave is under control.

Speaking to IANS, Sanyam Bhardwaj, CBSE’s controller of examinations, said: “If the situation gets worse, only then the second term of examinations will not be held. Marks obtained in the first phase will be considered final and based on them, the results will be prepared. But if such a situation does not arise and the second term is held successfully, the final result will be decided on the basis of 50-50 percent marks of these two terms.”
