CBSE Syllabus 2023-24

As the education sector continues to evolve, it is essential to keep up with the changes and make necessary modifications to improve the quality of education. With the introduction of the National Education Policy (NEP) in 2020, the Indian education system has undergone a significant transformation, paving the way for a more holistic and inclusive approach to learning. In order to reduce students’ workload, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has revised and rationalized the textbooks for classes 6 to 12 along with CBSE syllabus for the session 2023–2024.

The NCERT textbooks will be available in at least 22 languages, as mentioned in the eighth schedule of the Constitution, including Hindi, English, Bengali, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Sanskrit, Punjabi, Sindhi, Manipuri, Urdu, Malayalam, Odiya, and Kashmiri, among others.

Reasons Behind Rationalising the NCERT Textbooks

The NCERT has undertaken the task of rationalizing its textbooks to ensure that they are up-to-date and relevant to the changing educational landscape. In cases where the same or similar content was included in lower or higher grades, NCERT has removed the “overlapping” or comparable content. Another reason for rationalizing textbooks is to ensure that the textbooks are student-friendly, accessible, and free of irrelevant content.

About 30% of the syllabus has been deducted!

In view of streamlining the curriculum and optimizing the learning experience for students, NCERT has deducted around 30% of the syllabus for classes 6 to 12. With a significant portion of the syllabus reduced, it has become a widely discussed topic in the education sector. Some argue that a reduced syllabus will have vast benefits for the students, while others express concern about the potential negative consequences. Let’s discuss some notable pros and cons of a reduced syllabus from our POV.

Pros of CBSE Deleted Syllabus

Read the following points for pros of CBSE deleted syllabus.

  • Reduced Workload and Stress

Students will have less material to cover, which can alleviate stress and improve their ability to learn and retain information. With a smaller syllabus, students can focus more on understanding and mastering the core concepts instead of trying to cover an overwhelming amount of material. This helps in creating a healthier and more productive learning environment, which helps in students’ learning.

  • More Time for In-Depth Learning

With a reduced syllabus, teachers will be able to take an in-depth approach to teaching and allow students to fully explore and understand each concept. This will lead to better comprehension and retention.

  • Increased Motivation and Confidence

A limited syllabus also has a positive impact on students’ motivation. When students feel crushed by the large volume of study material, it can be demotivating and lead to a sense of helplessness. With less material to study, students will find it easier and more efficient to grasp the information, building their confidence.

  • Enhanced Learning Outcome

A reduced syllabus can lead to improved learning outcomes as it allows for a more focused and targeted approach to learning. A focused and targeted curriculum can lead to deeper understanding and greater academic success for students.

Cons of CBSE Deleted Syllabus

Read the following points for cons of CBSE deleted syllabus.

  • Gap in Knowledge

While the deductions in the syllabus may provide some relief from the stress, it will also introduce gaps in knowledge. Eliminating certain topics may leave out crucial concepts and perspectives that are essential for a holistic understanding.

  • Competitive Exams Preparation

Reducing the syllabus may result in limited preparation for competitive exams, as the removed topics aren’t removed from the syllabus of competitive exams. Students may miss out on essential topics that are tested in these exams.

  • Reduced Academic Standards

When topics are omitted or shortened, students miss out on valuable knowledge, which negatively affects the quality of their learning. Reduced syllabi can make it difficult to maintain the rigour and depth necessary for students to develop critical thinking and analytical skills.

  • Increased Weightage

The syllabus is reduced, but not the total number of marks to be scored in exams. Therefore, in the same 100 marks, the weightage of topics will be increased now. For instance, if a chapter had a weightage of 3 marks earlier, it might now change to 10 marks because the syllabus and topics are less, and questions would have to increase from the retaining topics.

The Indian education system is seeing a major change in its framework and curriculum, and every new step has both a positive and negative impact, but if managed carefully and a balance is created, this new step can be proven revolutionary for our education system.
