Council reduces syllabi for ICSE and ISC 2022 exams
The ICSE council has reduced the syllabi of more subjects for the ICSE (Class X) and ISC (Class XII) 2022 exams.
Last week, the council had reduced the syllabi of English and Indian languages for Class X and XII.
The reduced syllabi have been posted on the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) website under the publications section.
In Class X, besides English and Indian languages, the syllabi for history and civics, geography, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, commercial studies, computer applications, economic applications, commercial applications, environmental applications, home science, physical education and yoga have been reduced.
In Class XII, apart from English and Indian languages, the syllabi of accounts, commerce, economics, business studies, history, political science, geography, sociology, psychology, computer science, biotechnology and environmental science have been cut.
“The CISCE will continue with the process of syllabus reduction in the remaining subjects at the ICSE and ISC levels, in consultation with subject experts. The same will be made available on the CISCE website soon,” said Gerry Arathoon, chief executive and secretary, CISCE, in a circular sent to heads of affiliated schools on Friday.
The council has said that “project work already completed/initiated by the candidates in different subject/s, on topics which have been removed from the Syllabus, is to be accepted and marked”.
The council has asked the subject teachers to strictly follow the sequence of topics given in the syllabi.
