07 June, Kathmandu:
To all the CBSE board students, get yourself prepared for some learning time, vacations will be over soon!
On Friday, board chairman Manoj Ahuja said, “The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is working on the efficient curriculum for academic loss caused by COVID-19 pandemic and the reduced syllabus will be ready in a month’s time. We cannot bring sudden changes in the education system and create confusion and uncertainty. The curriculum reforms are going to be in sync with the learning outcomes”.
Further he also mentioned, “If something is duplicated in some way or working extra on the same concept, we aim to shelve it and thirdly anything which can be done in a more practical manner should be done that way. That’s what we are planning and we should be able to finalize within a month’s time.”
The news has come out that CBSE will be reducing the curriculum for the next academic calendar for all the classes to cover the months that have been futile due to COVID-19 lockdown, proclaiming that the curriculum will be shortened that would compensate for the lost time.
Moreover, the information has also been announced that the HRD ministry would provide alternative calendar for different grades specifying the learning plans during the lockdown.
