The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to reduce the syllabus for classes 9-12 by 30 percent, retaining core concepts.

"Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalise syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts," Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank tweeted.

"The prevailing health emergency in the country and at different parts of the world as well as the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the loss of class room teaching due to closure of schools. Therefore the Board has decided to revise the syllabi for Class IX-XII for the academic session 2020-21", said Dr Jose Emmanuel, Director (Academics), CBSE.

"The revision of syllabi is a measure taken due to extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and at different parts of the world. Considering the importance of achieving the level of learning, the syllabus has been rationalized to the extent possible by retaining the core concepts.

The Heads of Schools and Teachers may ensure that the topics that have been reduced are also explained to the students to the extent required to connect different topics. However, the reduced topics will not be part of the topics for Internal Assessment and year-end Board Examination", the Director added.
