The COVID-19 pandemic has raised a number of concerns in the academic sphere. A few of them include risks associated with conducting regular exams, along with concerns regarding availability of internet connectivity and gadgets necessary for online classes. This prompted multiple schools to request for a rationalisation of the syllabus in view of the reduced time permitted for organising classes online. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) finally agreed to bring about these changes. They can be broadly divided into the following sections:

Along with CBSE, The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) too has made significant changes, starting with subject-wise reduction of syllabi. The CISCE has reduced the ISC and ICSE syllabus for English and Indian languages for the academic session in 2022. The board is considering reducing the syllabus in other subjects as well without compromising on quality.
These steps have been taken due to the significant loss of institutional hours during the past one year as a result of the pandemic. These measures are expected to ease the burden on students and ensure a smooth execution of academic processes during these challenging times.
