CBSE Syllabus Rationalisation for Class 12 to 9: HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank today said that it has been decided to rationalize CBSE syllabus up to 30 per cent by retaining the core concepts. The HRD Minister said that looking at the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and the world, CBSE was advised to revise the curriculum and reduce course load for the students of Class 9th to 12th. To reach a decision, the minister had also invited suggestions from all educationists on the reduction of the syllabus for students. He said that more than 1500 suggestions were received.

“Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concept,” the HRD minister tweeted.

In a series of tweets, the HRD Minister said, “Looking at the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and the world, #CBSE was advised to revise the curriculum and reduce course load for the students of Class 9th to 12th. To aid the decision, a few weeks back I also invited suggestions from all educationists on the reduction of #SyllabusForStudents2020 and I am glad to share that we received more than 1.5K suggestions. Thank you, everyone, for the overwhelming response. Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts.”

Earlier today, we had reported that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) might cut the syllabus for Class 10 and Class 12 board exams by one-third to reduce the load on students.

The reduction in the syllabus is likely to be a one-time step taken by the HRD Ministry to compensate for the lost time due to coronavirus pandemic.

The HRD minister today held a meeting to discuss a synchronised calender for DU admissions and CBSE board exams. “Held a meeting with officials of
@HRDMinistry and Delhi University today to discuss a synchronized calendar for DU admissions & #CBSE board examination results etc.
I would like to assure everyone that we at MHRD are committed to students’ health and quality education,” Nishank tweeted.
