But despite this decision made by the CBSE, a large section of students had been facing problems as they were now living in different districts as compared to the districts in which their schools are located. A large number of these students used to live in hostels in different districts and had to vacate the hostels due to the lockdown. Many such students are in fact living thousands of miles away from their schools.

Central Board of Secondary Education is one of the biggest education boards in India and is responsible for managing the curriculum and exams in all the schools affiliated with it. Recently, there has been a major reshuffle in the CBSE. The central government has recently appointed a new Chairman for the CBSE. The New Chairman is Mr. Manoj Ahuja who is a 1990 batch Odisha cadre officer. His appointment is one of the nineteen appointments recently approved by the central government. Mr. Manoj Ahuja is presently working as the Special Director for the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration with the  Department of Personnel and Training.

 

A Lot On Hand For The New Chairman

 Due to the nationwide Lockdown, CBSE has recently had its hands full with numerous challenges. Now, that a new Chairman has been appointed, it is yet to be seen how the CBSE copes with the challenges on hand. Mr. Manoj Ahuja will be replacing Ms Anita Karwal, who has recently been appointed as the Secretary, Department of Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development. While announcing the appointment of Mr. Ahuja as the new Chairman, CBSE tweeted on 12th May 2020 that,

Challenges Facing CBSE In The Wake Of The Lockdown

Due to the lockdown, board exams for class 10th and 12th students got postponed, and as a result, several exams were left to be conducted. The exams kept on getting postponed as the lockdown kept on getting extended. Now, that the dates for the pending CBSE Board Exams have been announced by the HRD Ministry, Mr. Ahuja will now have to ensure smooth organization for the 10th and 12th class board exams. The new date sheet has now yet been released, but it has been informed that the exams will be conducted between 1st to 15th July 2020.

 

The major challenge for the board would be to complete the evaluation process in the wake of the lockdown and social distancing norms. Many evaluation centres are falling in the red zone, so getting them working during the lockdown will be a huge challenge. CBSE needs to develop a roadmap for the evaluation process immediately because it would anyways take some time to declare the results.

 

The new academic session in universities in India will be starting in August, as per recommendations of UGC and AICTE. So, it is important that the results for CBSE Board Exams 2020 are declared as soon as possible so that the universities also get time for completing the admission process.

That is why CBSE has shared the handbook along with the complete syllabus with the schools so that they can start preparing for the classroom sessions.

Therefore, the schools, as well as the students, can use this new handbook to start studying for the syllabus and wait till an official book is launched for the same. So, the students should continue their online classes for the time being and wait for an official announcement from the Ministry of Human Resource Development or the CBSE.

 

CBSE Syllabus 2020-21: Syllabus for all subjects to be trimmed

As the schools are closed due to the lockdown, the academic session has been started in the online mode only. But as students are unable to attend the classes, CBSE and the HRD Ministry have decided to trim the syllabus in order to factor in the time lost.

 

The board realizes that the students have been unable to get on with their studies due to the ongoing situation and that there is a need to trim the syllabus. But as of now, no official announcement has been made by the board on this matter yet.

 

When the CBSE officials last interacted with the heads of the schools as well as the teachers, they agreed to the fact that NCERT and the board are working towards reducing the syllabus for all subjects for class 10th and 12th students. As far as the syllabus is concerned for class 1st to 8th, schools have been authorized to make a decision themselves.

 

In the meanwhile, students of class 10th and 12th have been instructed to continue their studies as per the old syllabus only because the board specified that only topics from chapters would be removed from the curriculum and entire chapters will not be removed.
