New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is preparing an abridged curriculum which will be ready in a month.
CBSE Chairman Manoj Ahuja said the new syllabus aims at making up for the academic loss caused by COVID-19 pandemic. “We cannot bring sudden changes in the education system and create confusion and uncertainty. The curriculum reforms are going to be in sync with the learning outcomes,” he said during a virtual conference on ‘Future of Schools: Overcoming COVID-19 challenge and beyond’ organsied by Ashoka University on Friday, according to an OTV report.
“If something is duplicated in some way or extra on the same concept, we aim to shelve it and anything which can be done in a more practical manner should be done that way. That’s what we are planning and we should be able to finalise within a month’s time,” he said
