KATHMANDU: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) of India has decided to reduce the curriculum for classes 9 to 12 by 30 percent from the next academic session. There are 14 schools under the board in Nepal.
The board has informed that this arrangement will be implemented from the next academic session 2021-2021. According to the Indian Ministry of Education, the decision was taken on the advice of academics in view of the dire situation caused by the Coronavirus epidemic. Schools in India have been closed since last March due to the corona virus epidemic. Even in Nepal, schools have been closed since April.
Schools in Nepal and India under CBSE are teaching online. The board has made the results public only last week by conducting Class 10 exams during the lockdown period.
In Nepal, Kedia, DVAV, Chandwag, Delhi Public School, Modern India School, Kendriya Vidyalaya Lanchaur and other schools under the board are operating in Nepal. In the early days, the schools were operating without the approval of the Ministry of Education of Nepal. Even now, the curriculum of CBSE Board of India is being taught in these schools.
