The date sheet of the CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 exam is long out. The clock is ticking, slower for some and faster for many.  26th April is not that far away, just 2 weeks are left.


If you feel that the clock is ticking faster for you then you first need to take a deep breath and be calm at least till you read this whole blog. No world is going to crash and doomsday is just an age-old fancy concept. 


Last year the board announced that the examination pattern is being changed and the 2022 examination will be divided into two terms for Classes 10 & 12 after carefully monitoring the uncertainties caused by the pandemic.


With this move, the syllabus was also distributed rationally among the two terms covering up the learning loss caused by online schooling and frequent lockdowns.


The CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 exams will be of 2 hours with case-based, situation-based, open-ended short answer and long answer type questions.


This is also the first time an offline mode exam is being conducted after the onset of COVID-19. While the results for the Term 1 exam are already out, the weightage of both terms contributing to the final result will be decided by the board after the CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 exams.


So there are so many new changes that will come into effect in this exam that having some anxiety about it is natural. But if you trust your preparation and instincts for CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 it is just another exam.


Now, coming back to the date sheet of CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12. Less time is the reality of the present so it’s better to accept that and start formulating a plan to manage the time and resources at your disposal.


In the CBSE Class 10 & 12 Date sheet for major subjects given below, one can see that for Class 10th a minimum of 3 days break is there, while for Class 12th except before the Physical education paper there is a 3-day gap between papers of every stream.


This gap has been given to overcome the learning losses due to the pandemic, giving ample amount of time to students for CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 preparations.


So you don’t need to panic and think that you have to complete everything now before the first exam starts.


What you should firstly focus on now is to get familiarised with the dates from the CBSE Class 10 & 12 Date sheet below and visit again all the changes that are being introduced in the CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 Exam this year.


All the guidelines to follow, when you reach your examination centre and precautions to take. As reading these in the last moments will only cause an unnecessary rush in the last hour.

What should be your strategy for these 2 weeks?


Plan your seconds


“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” — William Penn, Fruits of Solitude


There are almost 2 weeks left i.e 11 days leaving aside the 3 days before the first CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 exams. By now you must know your subject and areas of the stronghold and lose grip.


How you use these few days will determine not only your confidence going into the exam but also your ability to turn weak areas into your favour. You should make way for 70 per cent time for these floating areas and 30 per cent on revising your strongholds.


This means prioritising weaknesses over strengths to overcome them. The vastness of CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 syllabus will decide the time-division.


And the most important thing is to start the reverse order of the CBSE Class 10 & 12 date sheet i.e, prepare for the last exam first so that by the time you come to the first you have a good 3-4 days left before the exam date.



Sample Time Table for CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12


What to do!

6:00 AM

Wake Up! Wake Up! It’s a new day!

6:00-6:30 AM

Do what you do! Your daily toils.

6:30-9:00 AM

Early you start early you finish. Morning is the best time to study, take up the weak links and conquer them.

9:00-9:30 AM

Short Break 1: Have a healthy breakfast and relax.

9:30-9:45 AM

Revisit the things you have learnt in the morning.

9:45-11:45 AM

Whatever subject you have chosen in the morning, solve examples and back exercise questions to strengthen your learning.

11:45-12:00 AM

Note where you got stuck, which parts you didn’t remember and the questions you couldn’t crack.

12:00-1:00 PM

Long Break 1: Just Chill and have your lunch.

1:00-4:00 PM

In this session, read some other topics.

4:00-4:30 PM

Short Break 2: Have milk or coffee and breathe, as you need more air the day yet to be over.

4:30-6:00 PM

Select a topic of your strength and read it from head to toe.

6:00-7:00 PM

Long Break 2: Go for a walk or walk for a go, just get out of this room. Change is required to rejuvenate.

7:00-8:30 PM

Go through your notes from the day and fix the problems.

8:30-9:30 PM

Long Break 3: Have dinner with some freshly released movie or web series.

9:30-10:00 PM

Revise the formulas, equations, definitions. Basically anything that is fact. You need facts to write your fiction.

10:00 PM




Now that you have a fair idea on how to go about these 11 days for CBSE Term 2 Class 10 & 12 exam keeping in mind your strength, weaknesses and breaks to fuel your eat, sleep and repeat cycle.


Make a Timetable after analysing the CBSE Class 10 &12 date sheet closely for each day and start the last phase of preparation in reverse order as discussed earlier.


And don't forget to believe in yourself you are the craftsman of your own destiny let not time or excuse snatch that away from you.


Good Luck!
