Considering the loss of real-time classroom teaching, because of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, CBSE reduced the syllabus of classes 9 to 12 by 30% for the present 2020-21 batch.

CBSE syllabus has been rationalized keeping more emphasis on the learning outcomes so, the core concepts of students can be retained.

However, the board in its official notification mentioned that the deleted portions of the CBSE syllabus should not be considered for internal assessments or for the year-end board exams.

Also, teachers should ensure that deleted portions must be explained to the students so that they can use it to connect to other topics.

CBSE has made the early changes in the month of April itself considering the ongoing situation but as the lockdown got extended and the Covid-19 pandemic became worse, the reduction off bigger syllabi was on the table.
