The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has reduced the syllabus of Class 10 and Class 12 for 2022 exams. Due to the ongoing Covid19 crisis, there has been disruptions in the education sector, which is forcing educational institutions to revamp their course structure. CISCE has also considered the situations and has reduced the syllabus of English and Indian languages.
However, the council has also said that it is considering reducing the syllabus in other subjects as well and a decision will be taken in consultation with the subject matter experts soon. In addition, there will be no compromise in the quality of content.
“..CISCE has initiated the process of syllabus review for various subjects at the ICSE and ISC levels specifically for Classes 10 and 12, for the Examination Year 2022, to identify portions of the syllabus which may be reduced, without compromising on the quality of content,” said Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary, CISCE in a statement issued to the heads of all affiliated schools.
The students will get further information on the official website of CISCE — cisce.org and check the Regulations and Syllabuses link under ICSE and ISC tabs.
“In the eventuality of the need for further reduction in the syllabus, it is imperative that the concerned subject teachers transact the syllabus strictly according to the sequence of topics given in the syllabus. This will ensure that all CISCE affiliated schools are broadly teaching the same topics at any given point of time as well as facilitate subsequent reduction in syllabus, if required,” the CISCE statement added.
