On 2nd September, The Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) announced that they have decided to reduce the syllabus for Class 9 and 10 for the academic session 2021-22.
SEBA issued notification
According to SEBA notification, “The course curriculum of each and every subject has been reduced approximately by 40 per cent in comparison with academic session 2019 for the convenience of exams of the students of class 9 and 10 in the academic session 2021-2022.”
Decision made due to academic loss during pandemic: Board
The board in a statement said: “It has been noticed that there has been considerable academic loss and it will be difficult for the students as well as the teachers to cover the course curriculum prescribed by the Board of Secondary Education, Assam for the Academic year 2021-2022.”
As the lockdown started in March 2020, all Educational Institutions were closed in Assam from the third week of April 2021. Although classes were conducted online, there are many students who could not attend online classes for various reasons and face academic loss.
“There has been a considerable academic loss and it will be difficult for students as well as teachers to cover up the course curriculum,” the statement added.
Revised course to be provided: SEBA
According to the notification, the revised course will be provided in PDF format to all the students which will also be available on the SEBA website i.e., www.sebaonline.org.
However, the board has requested teachers to teach the whole syllabus if possible.
