Views of the Director of Academics of CBSE

The director of Academics at CBSE, Jose Emmanuel said, “The prevailing health emergency in the county and in different parts of the world, as well as the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, has resulted in the loss of classroom teaching due to the closure of schools. Therefore, CBSE reduces the syllabus for Class IX to XII for the academic session 2020-21.

Role of Head of Schools and Teachers 

Schools and Teachers may ensure that reduced topics are also explained to the students. This can be done with the objective of imparting knowledge and connecting such topics with various core concepts. However, the reduced topics will not be a part of internal assessments and annual Board examination, as said by the director of Academics.
