ISC and ICSE Semester 2 Exams 2022: The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) will announce dates for the ISC and ICSE Semester 2 Exams 2022 after the JEE schedule on its official website cisce.org. This, according to the official, is to avoid a clash of dates.
Gerry Arathoon, chief executive and secretary of the Council of the Indian School Certificate Examinations, told The Telegraph of Kolkata, “Once they (the National Testing Agency) publish the dates of the JEE Main and NEET, we will set our dates so there is no clash of dates, especially for math and science subjects.”
Arathoon had earlier announced that the CISCE will hold Semester 2 Exams for ISC and ICSE in the last week of April. “This has reference to the conduct of the ICSE & ISC 2021-2022 Semester 2 Examinations. The tentative date for the start of the Semester 2 Examinations will be in the last week of April 2022,” a statement signed by him had said.
The ICSE had released the Semester 1 results on 7 February on its official website results.cisce.org.
Earlier, the CBSE too had announced that it will hold Term-2 board exams for Class 10 and Class 12 offline from 26 April. The term-1 exams were conducted last year but the results are awaited any time now.
About the board
The Council has been so constituted as to secure suitable representation of: Government of India, State Governments/Union Territories in which there are Schools affiliated to the Council, the Inter-State Board for Anglo-Indian Education, the Association of Indian Universities, the Association of Heads of Anglo-Indian Schools, the Indian Public Schools’ Conference, the Association of Schools for the ISC Examination and members co-opted by the Executive Committee of the Council.
In 1952, an All India Certificate Examinations Conference was held under the Chairmanship of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Minister for Education. The main purpose of the Conference was to consider the replacement of the overseas Cambridge School Certificate Examination by an All India Examination. This set the agenda for the establishment of the Council.
