The Madhya Pradesh Education Board (Mashiman) has started preparing for the 10th-12th board examinations to be held in the academic year 2020-21. However, the board is yet to decide on the syllabus. In fact, the Principal Secretary had earlier ordered to reduce the syllabus by 30 percent while under the charge of the Divisional President, but later the Divisional President adjourned it. In such a case, a final decision will be taken in the matter on November 10.
State schools still closed
The school has not yet opened due to the outbreak of Corona epidemic in the state. Earlier, after the unlock guideline received by the Central Government, the school was partially allowed to open for students from 9th to 12th from 21st September. However, out of these only 5 to 10 percent of the students’ parents gave consent letters. Meanwhile, only 15 to 20 percent of the syllabus has been completed through online classes. In such a situation, the school education department had earlier written a letter to reduce the course, which will be decided on November 10.
CBSE cuts 30 percent
Seeing the loss of education due to Corona, the boards of other states including CBSE have also decided to reduce syllabus in the new academic year – 2020-21. CBSE had given instructions to start studies after reducing syllabus by 30 percent. At the same time, Rajasthan Board also ordered to reduce the syllabus by 40 percent this time. However, this has not yet been possible in the Madhya Pradesh Board. The final decision will be taken in this meeting of the Board’s syllabus committee on November 10.
