CBSE Reduced Syllabus for Classes 9-12
CBSE issues syllabus booklets for classes 9, 10, 11 and 12. This curriculum is revised every year. This year too, CBSE has made some big changes in the syllabus.
The biggest change this year is that CBSE will conduct only annual exams now. It means now students will undergo only one annual exam at the end of the session. However, periodic tests and class tests will continue. But we know that the weightage for these tests is only 10%.

- enriching the curriculum to provide for the overall development of children rather than remain textbook centric,
- making examinations more flexible and integrated into classroom life and,
- nurturing an overriding identity informed by caring concerns within the democratic polity of the country.
