Clearing all uncertainty over the Plus 2 examination pattern, the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) on Tuesday announced that it will conduct quarter-end examinations during 2022-23 academic session.

"After careful consideration, the government have been pleased to allow the conduct of qurter-end examination for the academic session 2022-23," a notification issued by the Odisha School and Mass Education department read.

Earlier, the Odisha government had announced to re-introduce 100 per cent syllabi in CHSE Plus 2 courses. However, it had not made any official announcement on the examination pattern. 

It is pertinent to mention here that the syllabus for Class 10 and Plus 2 students were earlier reduced in view of the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the past couple of years. Similarly, the Council had introduced quarter end examination pattern and hold internal examination in every trimester. 

The marks of the students were calculated based on the 20 per cent of the mark scored in the last quarter end examination and 80 per cent mark from the board examination.
