What was the issue?
The PUE Board had issued a circular to all the colleges, stating that II PUC student should study the entire syllabus for the examinations. It would apply for preparatory exams also.
The issued circular was against the rules made by the board in Blow-up syllabus that was published in December 2013.
On January 06, 2015, Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat and All India Democratic Student Organisation (AIDSO) staged a massive protest in front of the PUE Department office.
After revoking the decision on the Blow-up syllabus, students and teachers have got relief and showed happiness.
II PUC student, Suhas said, "I am happy that, board has revoked their decision. If we were asked to prepare for the entire syllabus at the last minute, most of us would not succeed in the examination".
