Students Studying from Class IX to XII 30% of their Syllabus Trimmed

GOA: Students studying from Class IX to XII may see as much as 30% of their syllabus trimmed, as a proposal to this effect was discussed by officials of the Goa board of secondary and higher secondary education (GBSHSE) during a marathon meeting via video conferencing on Monday. Its academic council is set to meet on Tuesday and take the call on truncating the syllabus.

Any decision to trim the syllabus will only be applicable for the academic year 2020-21. Board chairman Ramkrishna Samant confirmed that the board of studies is working in this direction to cut down the syllabus for higher classes.

The syllabus from Class I to VIII comes under the purview of the State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT), and any decision on trunaction of syllabus for these lower classes will have to come from this body.

After the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) took a decision to cut down the syllabus due to the ongoing pandemic and subsequent delay in reopening of schools, Goa Board is among the first few state boards to also take up such a move.
