The CBSE has decided to reduce the academic curriculum for the session 2020-21 due to the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic which resulted in loss of classroom teaching.

The official notice reads, "The revision of syllabi is a measure taken due to the extraordinary situation prevailing in the country and at different parts of the world. Considering the importance of achieving the level of learning, the syllabus has been rationalised to the extent possible by retaining the core concepts."

However the reduced syllabus will not be part of the topics for Internal Assessment and year-end Board Examination. Alternative Academic Calendar and inputs from the NCERT on transacting the curriculum using different strategies may also be part of the teaching pedagogy."

The Elementary Classes (I-VIII) schools may follow the NCERT Alternative Academic Calendar
