CBSE syllabus 2022-23 changes have been designed keeping in mind the needs and challenges faced by students in today’s world and will help them to develop the skills and knowledge required to succeed in their future careers. The following are the changes:
- Syllabus Reduction
One of the most significant changes is the reduced syllabus for classes 9 to 12. The reduction ranges from 30% to 40%, depending on the subject. This move is made to ease the burden on students facing difficulties completing the syllabus due to the pandemic-related disruptions. The reduced syllabus will also allow teachers to focus on the most critical topics and concepts, thus ensuring students better understand the subject matter.
- Inclusion of New Topics and Concepts
According to the revised CBSE syllabus, the board has introduced new reading passages, essays, and grammar topics in the English subject to enhance the students’ reading and writing skills.
In Mathematics, there has been the introduction of new topics such as data handling, probability, and statistics, which are essential in today’s data-driven world.
Similarly, the Science CBSE syllabus 2022-23 includes new topics like artificial intelligence, climate change, and renewable energy to make the subject more relevant to the current times.
- Assessment Pattern Changed
For classes 10th and 12th, the board has replaced the term-wise assessment with only one year-end examination.
20% of internal assessments will be conducted even in those subjects that do not include practicals. This change is based on NEP 2020, and hence the students will be evaluated by their parents, teachers, and peers, and the 20% marks will be allotted on the same basis.
- Changes in the Evaluation System
CBSE syllabus 2022-23 has recommended that schools should use a grading system instead of marks, which will focus on a continuous and comprehensive evaluation. This evaluation system will allow students to learn at their own pace and reduce the pressure of achieving high marks.
There will now be 40% competency-based questions in class 10th and 30% in class 12th, comprising MCQs, case-based, source-based integrated questions, or other types of questions. In addition to this majority of the questions will be descriptive, with some being objective.
These changes will help students to develop a better understanding of the subjects and prepare them for the challenges of the future.
