HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank announced that it had been decided that CBSE would be reducing the syllabus for classes 9 to 12 by 30% while retaining the core concepts due to the Covid-19 situation prevailing across the world.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday evening he said that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had been advised earlier to revise the curriculum so that the course load could be reduced for students of classes 9 to 12.

He said that he had also invited suggestions from educationists across India on how the CBSE syllabus could be reduced and thanked everyone for the 1500-plus suggestions sent in.

“Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts,” the HRD minister said in his tweet.

CBSE has issued a new notification dated July 7 with more details about the CBSE syllabus reduction and changes.

It states that the board had decided to revise the CBSE syllabus and reduce it due to the loss of classroom teaching time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The changes made in the syllabi have been finalised by the respective Course Committees with the approval of the Curriculum Committee and Governing Body of the Board,” the CBSE notification states.

“Considering the importance of achieving the level of learning, the syllabus has been rationalised to the extent possible by retaining the core concepts,” it adds.

The notification said that school heads and teachers should ensure that the topics that have been removed should also be explained to the students so that that information can be used to connect to other topics.

“However, the reduced syllabus will not be part of the topics for Internal Assessment and year-end Board Examination,” CBSE says in the notification.
