CBSE not to reduce syllabus of classes 9-12

CBSE's most recent syllabus: According to the CBSE's most recent syllabus, the chapters and topics that were slashed in the previous academic year have been restored in the official curriculum for the upcoming academic session 2021-22. In line with the new curriculum, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has agreed not to cut the syllabus for students in classes 9 to 12 for the academic year 2021-22. According to a CBSE official, "the board had already begun last year that the rationalization exercise would be a one-time initiative because teaching and learning by online mediums or alternative methods were still relatively new at the time."

Due to this pandemic phase schools were closed: In March of last year, schools around the country were closed in preparation for a national lockdown to avoid the spread of the coronavirus. During the lockdown, most teaching and learning tasks were transferred online. Although a few states authorized a partial reopening of schools in October, an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases has forced most states to return to online classes for the new academic session.

The Result of the COVID-19 Crisis: In the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis, the CBSE rationalized the syllabus for classes 9 to 12 by up to 30% for the academic year 2020-21 to reduce the course load of students. Exams will be held in May and June for students who learned the reduced syllabus. According to the CBSE's latest syllabus, the chapters and topics that were deleted in the previous academic year have been reinstated in the official curriculum for the academic year 2021-22.
