The council has said that it has taken a call on reducing the syllabus after consulting its subject experts, without compromising on the quality of content.
“As you are aware, we are in the midst of the pandemic, and there is uncertainty as to when schools across the country will be able to return to normalcy. It is reiterated 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 a subsequent reduction in the syllabus if required,” said Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary, CISCE in a statement issued to the heads of all affiliated schools.
“Further, please note that the Project Work already completed/ initiated by the candidates in different subject/s, on topics which have been removed from the Syllabus, is to be accepted and marked,”.
