The changes in the syllabus will not affect the students in the examination. Both the states are in the process of changing the curriculum for the schools.

Telangana Education Minister, G Jagadish Reddy has said the committees to remove AP related material and history about AP or literature by writers and poets will not be preset in the curriculum.

Committee official said, "We have instructions from the government, that nothing related to the history and culture of AP should be there. Everything should from Telangana's perspective."

The Director of State Council of Educational Research and Training, S Jagannath Reddy said, "If there is a chapter related to the poet from AP, it will be replaced with a Telangana-related chapter."
