For the academic session 2021-22, the entire session is divided into two terms. And the final result will be prepared based upon the marks of both terms.

The exact dates are not yet announced and will be declared on the official website of CBSE.
Whether you are a student of class 10th or class 12th, the exams will be conducted in these months only.

Just go through that and start preparing for your term 2 board exams without giving any second thought.
This will help you come out with flying colors after your board exams as both the terms are equally important.
2. Exam syllabus: Key to excel
CBSE has adopted a rationalized syllabus approach for the term exams based upon the Covid-19 situations in the country.
This implies that 50% of the entire syllabus will come in term 2 board examinations.
The syllabus for term 2 will be different from the one that came in term 1 examinations.
A rationalized syllabus for term 2 is uploaded on the official website of CBSE. You can check the website to have in-depth knowledge about the chapters that will be there in term 2.
There is no provision to leave anything optional in these examinations as they are already as per the rationalized syllabus.
You need to pass the term exams for both terms to pass the entire board exams.
3. Exam Duration & Format
One of the biggest questions that are haunting every student, for now, is its format or the pattern of the term 2 board exam.
To put a mark on your haunting thoughts CBSE has already declared that term 2 exams will be conducted for 2 hours, unlike the term 1 exams.
Besides that, the term 2 exam will be conducted in descriptive format.
You will encounter different types of questions in the term 2 exams based upon the case-based, situation-based, open-ended short answer, and long answer type questions.
As of now, the board has decided to take the offline exams in the exam centers for class 10th and 12th for term 2.
But, in case the situation of Covid-19 is not under control and there is no scope to proceed with the offline exams. Then CBSE has already laid a plan for that situation also.
They will go with a 90-minutes MCQ-based exam in case of the descriptive exam if the situation doesn't allow it.
Marks of term 2 will also contribute to the entire board score. And the term 2 exams will be conducted for 50 marks.

CBSE term 1 exams were conducted in respective schools to maintain the safety of the students.
But, this procedure will not be followed for term 2 examinations.
You need to visit the board centers that will be decided by the CBSE to give your term 2 board exam.
CBSE has also considered some of the worst-case scenarios and their solutions if the term 2 exams won't be able to conduct under any inevitable circumstances.
If the term 1 exams were successfully conducted in physical mode and there would be no provision for conducting the term 2 examination due to the alarming Covid-19 situation.
Then the results of the board exam will be based upon the performance of term 1 exams and internal assessments.
5. Other Assessments
CBSE has even laid a plan to evaluate the students upon the basis of internal assessments.
These assessments will go from time to time for class 10th students irrespective of term 1 and term 2.
The major activities that are a part of internal assessment include:
1. Three periodic tests
2. Subject enrichment activities
4. Practical work(for selected subjects)
5. Speaking listening activities(for language subjects)
6. Project work
Students will be given marks based on their performance during these internal activities.
The overall score for the board exams will be calculated in the same manner as they were calculated for previous years by including the internal assessments.
To bring transparency in the entire process of internal assessments, the board is planning to issue some new guidelines. They can keep a fair eye on the school's procedure of taking internal assessments.
You can keep a constant eye on the official website of CBSE to stay updated with these new guidelines.
