At present, the main aim of Karnataka state government is to implement a common science curriculum from the upcoming year 2012, and a common arts and commerce curriculum from 2013. The reason behind this change was the declaration of the Medical Council of India (MIC) to conduct a single medical entrance exam this year, which had let Karnataka with no other go. This made Karnataka force them to implement a curriculum which is followed across the country.
Karnataka will now be adopting the National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT) textbooks. The sources of the Karnataka PU department reveal that the syllabus for I-X standard will be following the National Curriculam Framework (NCF), as is sure that as a result of this change the students will feel easy to cope with the NCERT syllabus.
The complete transformation of the educational system of Karnataka is been resulting in panic and fear among students. They fear in losing their seats in Karnataka because of the 20% syllabus gap with NEET syllabus. But still the State Government feels that the students needs no fear, as Karnataka is now ready to conduct the exam as well as to offer bridge classes to students from rural backgrounds to prepare them for CET.
