Dimapur, September 1: In view of the closure of educational institutions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) has reduced syllabi of Classes X, XI & XII for the academic session 2020.
NBSE chairman, Asano Sekhose said the reduction in existing syllabus ranges from 20% to 30% in different subjects and is for the sole purpose of conducting the final examination in order to reduce the work load of the students and compensate the lost teaching days.
The chapters/topics that are removed from the syllabus are given at the Board’s website (www.nbsenagaland.com). The reduction is applicable for this academic session 2020 only.
The revised mark distribution unit/chapter wise, the design of the question paper subject wise along with the internal assessment areas and guidelines are also enclosed.
The NBSE also advised that whatever activities the school do, whether it be external or internal, the same must be recorded. The internal mark of the students too must be recorded and kept properly.
The NBSE chairman requested all heads of institutions to take note and inform the concerned teachers and the students about the changes.
“Every school should continue to guide and help the students in every possible way. They should be encouraged to keep in touch with their textbooks. Home works, assignments and projects which can be done at home should be given out at regular intervals. There should be regular assessment/test to check on the students learning outcomes,” informed the NBSE. (Page News Service)
