The Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) in July announced to reduce the syllabus for Classes IX to XII by up to 30 per cent due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the revised syllabus is yet to be made public.

File sent to Secy

The syllabus is not reduced yet. I am told that the file has been sent to the Secretary, School Education, but I am yet to check the exact status.

The Central Board of School Education (CBSE) has already reduced the syllabus for these classes.

A committee of subject experts from the PSEB and State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) set up by the school education department has to finalise the revised syllabus.

The PSEB had once uploaded the reduced syllabus on its website "without approval" and it had to be removed after the Punjab State Education Research and Training Council (SCERT) brought the matter to the notice of the PSEB Chairman.

A government school teacher said, "The syllabus should be reduced at the earliest, so that students can prepare accordingly. The unnecessary delay will only create confusion among students and teachers."

Dr Yog Raj Sharma, Chairman, PSEB, said, "The syllabus is not reduced yet. I am told that the file has been sent to the Secretary, School Education, but I have yet to check the exact status."
