Punjab SCERT shares plans with Government for 25 percent reduction in syllabus

Punjab SCERT shares plans with Government for 25 percent reduction in syllabus. The State Council of Educational Research and Training has sent a proposal to the education ministry for a 25% reduction in school syllabus and is awaiting for approval of the same. Dinkar Patil, SCERT Director, has said that once approved by the Education Ministry, the changes will be uploaded on the official website. The Director said that a subject-wise committee was set up to suggest modifications in the syllabus as the academic year got cut short due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Committee has taken proper care to ensure that topics crucial in terms of common entrance tests and other such examinations are not excluded in any manner. He also mentioned that once the Government approves the changes the teachers will also be instructed to consider them. Reduction in syllabus simply does not imply that certain topics will be omitted.

While some parts will be given to the students for self-learning, others which do not have a definitive link to the next standard will be cut. In case of portions that are repeated, such topics will be marked for self learning as well. The reduction in syllabus is a temporary or one-time measure due to COVID-19 proclaimed the minister. He also added that the syllabus will be back to the way it was from the next academic year
