Prime News, Karnataka, Education, Students, Bengaluru, November 27:- The Karnataka government has decided to scale down this year’s SSLC syllabus by 20 percent. This reduction is being made in order to compensate for the delayed start of the current academic year.
Primary and Secondary Education Minister B C Nagesh confirmed that the decision was taken to ensure that the next academic year begins on schedule.
The minister said that it has been decided to hold the SSLC examination either during the end of March or first week of April 2021.
Nagesh said that the delayed start of the schools had posed a challenge for the teachers to complete the teaching in time. He noted that this also resulted in additional burden for the children, and that the officials will be instructed to complete the syllabus by taking into account teaching days available till the end of March next year.
