SCERT director Dinkar Patil said that once approved, the changes would be uploaded to their website.
“We had set up a technical committee to suggest changes to the curriculum due to a shortened academic year after the Covid 19 pandemic. Care has been taken not to exclude topics that are important for common entrance tests and other such tests. Once the state approves the changes, instructors will also be given instructions to review them, ”said Patil.
Reducing the curriculum does not necessarily mean that some topics are left out. Some parts are given to students so that they can learn themselves, while some parts that have no links to the next standard can be cut.
There are some parts that are repeated and that are also marked for self-learning.
He had also called it a temporary measure during the Covid 19 period and added that the curriculum would be back to normal from the next academic year.
Other central educational bodies, such as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), have announced plans to cut curricula for their students by up to 30%.
Even government bodies like the Uttar Pradesh Education Board have already announced a cut in the curriculum, while many other government bodies are announcing a reduction in their curricula.
