CBSE has notified that the deleted portions of the syllabus should not be treated as a part of internal assessments or year-end board examinations.
The Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, on July 7, announced a 30 percent reduction in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus for the new academic year 2020-21. Mr Pokhriyal said, looking at the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country, as well as the world, and considering the importance of learning achievement, the decision was taken to rationalise the syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts.
CBSE notified that the deleted portions of the CBSE syllabus should not be treated as a part of internal assessments or the year-end board examinations.
However, teachers should ensure that the deleted portions are properly explained to the students so that they can easily relate to other topics as well, the notification said.

CBSE curtailed the syllabus of classes 9 to 12 with the help of suggestions from the National Council of Educational Research and Training. “While a number of CISCE affiliated schools have tried to adapt to this changed scenario and have tried to keep alive the teaching learning process through online classes, there has been a significant shortening of the academic year and loss of the instructional hours,” a statement from the CISCE had said.
Earlier, CISCE had announced a reduction of up to 25 percent in the syllabus for Classes 10 and 12 in practical portions, but as the lockdown got extended and the Covid-19 pandemic situation became worse, a larger syllabus reduction was expected.
