CBSE Update for Class 10 and 12 in 2021-22: The first bifurcated board exams for classes 10 and 12 will be held on November 17 and 16, respectively, by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). CBSE has chosen to split the board exams for classes 10, 12, into two terms, each covering half of the syllabus.
Our tutor Ramit has made a detailed video on how to fill the CBSE OMR sheet for Term 1 Board Exams and you can watch the same for complete clarity here:
As per the guidelines by the CBSE, the OMR sheet is decoded because this is the first time CBSE will be utilizing OMR sheets for class 10,12 examinations, so there will be no last-minute misunderstanding among students. Students can only use blue or black ballpoint pens to write in responses on the OMR sheet, according to the central board’s requirements.
OMR’s key highlights:
- Regardless of the overall number of questions in any subject’s Question Papers, there will be enough space in an OMR to answer 60 questions. Candidates will use the maximum number of circles to respond to the entire number of questions on the Question Paper. The only serial should be used.
- Answers provided after the maximum number of questions have been answered will not be considered. As a result, if certain Question Papers include 45 questions and the candidate changes Question No. 46 in OMR and writes this question as 45 before answering, the answer will not be considered.
- 4 circles (a), (b), (c), and (d) are placed in front of each question in a row to indicate how to respond. Candidates should darken the circle with a pen after they are certain that their response is correct.
- After four circles have been completed, a box in the same row is given. Candidates must fill up this box with the appropriate selection.
- After the box, there is a circle with the question number on it. This circle is to be darkened by the candidates if they have not attempted this question.
- Candidates are suggested to begin by darkening the circle to indicate their response. They should write an answer in a box if they are completely satisfied. The only reason for providing a box is that if any candidate decides to revise their response, they may do so in the box.
- Even if a candidate is fine with darkening the circle, then he or she must write their response in the box. Candidates must respond in both a circle and a box.
- The response written in the box will be considered final.
- If the box is empty and the response is marked in the circle, it is assumed that the candidate has not attempted the question.
- The applicant will be regarded as marked attempted the Question if the response is submitted in a box and the circle is left empty.
- It will be assumed that the question has not been attempted if all three, including the four circles, the box, and the last circle, are left blank.
What Students Should Know About OMR Sheets?
- The OMR papers will have to be downloaded in advance by the schools.
- Candidates’ information will be pre-filled in the OMR.
- A candidate must write a Question Paper Code in the area given in the top right corner.
- The Code for the Question Paper will be written on the Question Paper.
- In the area provided, a candidate must write in his or her own hand, “I confirm that all particulars given above are correct,” and sign in the running hand on OMR.
- For filling out forms and providing answers, only a blue/black ballpoint pen should be used.
- The use of a pencil is absolutely forbidden. If it is discovered that the candidate filled out the OMR using a pencil, this will be deemed unfair means and action will be taken against the candidate in accordance with the unfair means guidelines.
