The Board of Higher Secondary Education (BHSE) of Delhi was founded to govern nonformal education in Delhi, encompassing nonformal primary, middle, and high school education, along with different vocational courses. The BHSE like all educational boards is an autonomous body with discretionary powers. The entire education structure of the board has its own selfcontained education programme.
There are over 1,000 public and 1,700 private schools in Delhi, most of which are associated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Moreover, one of the first milestones in a student’s life is the Class 10 board exam. This stage of life has a significant impact on the students’ future. The Delhi Board’s 10thgrade result is the most important factor in determining whether the student will be eligible to pursue their desired stream in Class 11. The Delhi board exam for Class 10 is used to assess a student’s academic performance throughout the year.
It is very important for students to be aware of the Delhi Board Class 10 exam. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian Certificate for Secondary Education (ICSE) are the two main bodies that oversee secondary and higher secondary education in Delhi. Delhi does not actually have a state board. Both of these boards are in charge of holding board exams at the 10 and 10+2 levels and grant affiliation to the majority of Delhi’s schools.

All of the Delhi Board Class 10 exams are administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Students must take the Delhi Board Class 10 exam and thoroughly understand the pattern of the exam before starting their preparations. According to the most recent syllabus and student needs, CBSE modified the exam pattern A single annual exam will be held under the new CBSE examination scheme for Class 10. The Delhi Board Class 10 board exam now carries 80 marks, and the remaining 20 marks are given to the internal school evaluations. This modification to the exam pattern was implemented in 2019 and has been adhered to.
The total marks for Delhi Board Class 10 internal assessment are 20, and it is divided into four sections. Check the table below to have an idea about the detailed internal assessment conducted by the Delhi Board or CBSE:
No.  Sections Considered  Marks 

1.  Periodic Test  5 Marks 
2.  Multiple Assessments  5 Marks 
3.  Portfolio  5 Marks 
4.  Subject Enrichment Activities  5 Marks 
Total  20 Marks 
The officials have introduced 25% multiple choice type questions in all subjects of the Delhi Board Class 10 board exam. Out of 80 marks, 20 marks will be assigned to multiplechoice type questions (Choose the correct answer, and fill in the blanks). Subjective questions where students need to write a detailed answer will carry 60 marks. Students must be thorough with all the theory concepts and important topics to attempt the objective type questions section. Different marks are allotted to different sections.
As per the latest update, the exam time for each subject will be 1.5 hour or 90 minutes. The respective timetable has been shared in the article.
Students must be wellversed with the entire Delhi Board Class 10th exam syllabus before starting their exam preparations. Students studying for their Delhi board exams will benefit greatly from the CBSE Class 10 syllabus. It comprises the duration of each period allotted for each unit, the distribution of unit marks, and the course structure. The Delhi Board syllabus for Class 10 includes information on these topics as well as reference materials, projects, assignments, and practicals.
Students can better organise their studies if they have an understanding of the Delhi Board syllabus for Class 10. Students will learn the topics and concepts that must be learnt in each subject through the CBSE board syllabus for Class 10. Additionally, the board exam questions are created using the Delhi Board 10th grade curriculum.

After tenth grade, the most difficult decision for any child is deciding on a good professional career. When it comes to picking a reputable institution or school, students are usually torn between following the herd mentality and enrolling in the most popular courses. Selecting a course based on what their parents require, or just following their friends is never a good option. The vast majority of students select courses without first assessing their own strengths, limitations, or interests. They make a poor decision due to peer pressure, and then attempt to change courses or colleges afterwards.
In the face of the pandemic, the Delhi Board of Education has introduced a number of creative steps to support children and their parents. A manual on mental health and wellbeing, as well as a series of webinars for students, teachers, and parents’ psychosocial wellbeing and mental wellness, are among the activities. Carefully go through them to have a bright future ahead.

Students who have completed the Delhi Board Class 10 exams must make plans for their next academic step, including choosing one of the many courses offered after grade 10. This requires considerable consideration and research because subjects beyond the tenth grade include courses in the Arts, Science, and Business, to name a few. Additionally, students looking for a curriculum focused on the workforce may wish to look into posttenthgrade courses that offer placement after graduation.
Students in Delhi Board Class 10 and up have access to a range of competitive exams and incentive schemes. These rigorous exams examine students' mental aptitude and intellectual capacity, and those who succeed are given scholarships. Below we have provided a list of future exams:
