NBSE reduces syllabus for classes 10 to 12

Kohima, September 1 (MExN): The Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) on Tuesday decided to reduce the syllabus range of classes 10 to 12 for the academic session 2020, to cut down the syllabus to reduce the work load for students and compensate lost teaching days. 

“One of the measures taken by the Board to this end is the reduction of existing syllabus ranging from 20% to 30% in different subjects for the sole purpose of conducting the final examination in order to reduce the work load of the students and compensate the lost teaching days,” NBSE Chairperson Asano Sekhose said in a notification addressed to heads of institutions registered with the Board. The reduction is applicable for the academic session 2020 only.

Sekhose informed that the chapters/topics that are removed from the syllabus will be displayed on the board’s website (www.nbsenagaland.com).

The board also issued revised unit/chapter wise mark distribution, design of the question paper (subject wise) along with internal assessment areas and guidelines, and directed the schools to record all external or internal activities conducted by the schools. 

Sekhose  meanwhile advised all schools to continue guiding the students and encourage them to keep in touch with their textbooks. “Home works, assignments and projects which can be done at home should be given out at regular intervals. There should be regular assessments/test to check on the student’s learning outcomes,” she added.
