SummaryThe syllabus for physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology was upgraded according to the core syllabus prepared by the Council of Boards of School Education in India.

said, “I want to opt for medical. I will have to score well in my HSC examination. But with this syllabus, I’m not sure if this will be possible.”

Teachers have also alleged that training workshops for the new syllabus were not systematic. The state board has not distributed model question papers based on the changed syllabus yet, the claim.

State board officials say the change in syllabus will help students when they appear for national-level competitive examinations. “This upgraded syllabus will iron out many hurdles for students appearing for all-India level competitive examinations. There might be some problems in the beginning, but standardisation is important to avoid problems in future. At the same time, we are still reviewing the books,” said Sarjerao Jadhav, chairman of MSBSHSE.
