CBSE is planning to deduct the syllabus for Boards

PUBLISH DATE 12th October 2020

The syllabus for the Class X and XII Board exams of 2021 is likely to be deducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) as the Covid-19 situation might affect next year's exams. The Class X and XII Board exams dates may also be shifted by 45-60 days to make up for the academic losses caused due to the pandemic. 
CBSE and CISCE, along with state education Boards have already reduced the academic syllabus for the 2021 Class X and XII exams by up to 30%. However, with the schools closed and classes held only  online, officials of both the Boards say there could be a need to further reduce the syllabus. A senior CBSE official said no decision has been taken yet , by the Board but , "after 30% reduction in July, there has been no normal classes and if the situation remains like this, there is a possibility of further reduction of the syllabus for the Board exams. The Board will decide soon whether the exams are to be taken based on 70% or 50% of the syllabus."

Chief executive, CISCE, said "Given the present circumstances, there is a possibility of further reduction of the syllabus. Though, one cannot say right now to what extent it could be slashed for the 2021 exams." "The standards for online classes differ from school to school and therefore we are expecting some physical classes to happen before the exams. We will have to wait for it to happen and consider the situation. Therefore, probably the Board exams may have to be postponed to April or beyond to take physical classes and for completion of the syllabus. Schools are also asking us to defer the dates as well as reduce the syllabus by 50%," said the CBSE official. 
"Another challenge is to conduct the exams with Covid-19 protocol and social distancing," he said. Both the national Boards are now waiting for some guidance from the ministry of education prior to taking a final call. We are waiting for some direction — whether the academic year will be extended so that the syllabus can be completed. Then the exams will have to be shifted, probably to May or even later,” . Both the CBSE and CISCE usually conduct the Board exams in February-March. 
Apart from affecting physical classes, the pandemic affected this year’s Board exams and those of universities and colleges besides competitive tests. In fact, the CBSE and CISCE could not complete the 2020 Board exams and students were given marks based on revised assessment schemes for the remaining papers.
