To provide more relief to students, the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) Board has reduced the syllabus for second time for the classes 10th, 12th students. It had earlier reduced the syllabus for the current academic year and the board exams of 2021.
The council had sent a letter to the school heads regarding the syllabus reduction earlier and the chief executive and the secretary has informed that the continuity between the syllabus of the classes would not be broken or compromised with.
As per CEO & Secretary of CISCE Gerry Arathoon, no students’ career would be compromised through the reduction. The students can visit the official website to find out the topics being carried forward and the ones being reduced. The board has decided this on account of learning disruption that students faced as the schools were closed during the nation-wide lockdown.

Earlier Arathoon hinted at an increased reduction in case the situation did not improve. He said, “given the academic loss till July, which is around 45 days we have reduced the syllabus for the students appearing for Class 10 and 12 Boards up to 25 pc. However, that is subject to further review as from July first week our schools are only able to resume online classes. This could have further adverse effects. We may even have to reduce the syllabi further and may even have to go up to 50 per cent reduction.”
