New Delhi:

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the official date sheet of Class 10 and Class 12 term 1 board exams, hours after it warned that a fake time table was being circulated on social media websites.

Earlier in the day, just before the CBSE was to release its date sheet, a fake schedule was shared widely on the Internet that said exams will be held in November. It forced the CBSE to issue a clarification since it had not released any official date sheet till then.

"It has come to the notice of CBSE that a fake date sheet is being circulated on social media for the forthcoming term 1 exams in Nov 2021, to confuse students of class 10 and 12. It is clarified that the board has not released any official notification in this regard till now," the official handle of the CBSE tweeted, before it released the date sheet a few hours later.

The official and correct time table was released on the CBSE website, cbse.gov.in. The term 1 Class 10 and Class 12 board exams will take place in November-December, 2021. Exams for Class 10 students begin on November 30 and continue till December 11. For Class 12 students, papers will be held from December 1 to December 22.

The first-term board examinations for Classes 10 and 12 will be conducted offline. Keeping in view the winter season, the board has decided to conduct papers from 11:30 am instead of 10:30 am.

This year, the CBSE has divided the board exam into two terms. The Class 10 and Class 12 subjects have also been divided as minor and major -- exams will be held first for minor subjects, followed by the major subjects.

CBSE term 2 board exams will be held in March-April 2022.
