The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is going to reduce the syllabus for the 12th board examination next year. Indeed, due to the lockdown, teachers will get less time to teach students. In such a situation, there is relaxation for the students who take admission in the 12th class next year. Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal gave information about this.
Loss due to lockdown
Schools have been closed since March 16 due to the coronavirus spreading across the country. It has been more than a month since all educational institutions were closed. Teachers usually aim to complete the 12th syllabus by December, but due to the current situation, both teachers and students have lost a month.
JEE date not yet decided
The HRD minister said that CBSE has directed the ‘syllabus committees’ to start work to reduce the syllabus for next year’s examinations. At the same time, regarding the entrance exam, the JEE Main will be held in June due to the increased lockdown. However, there is no information about its date.
Private schools are advised not to charge fees
At the same time, the Union Minister also said that private schools should not take the increased fees because of the “difficult circumstances” of the present time. Private schools are advised not to charge an increased annual fee. Also, do not take fees together for three months and pay the employees of the schools on time.
