UPMSP has declared its intention to revise the syllabus for classes 10th, 11th, and 12th, aligning it with recent modifications to the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) curriculum.
According to a statement by Divyakant Shukla, the Secretary of the UPMSP, the updated syllabus for the 2023-24 academic year will soon be accessible for download from the board's official website. Additionally, textbooks reflecting the streamlined syllabus are now available for purchase.
The news follows the NCERT's decision to exclude a number of themes from the textbooks for Classes 6 through 12 in an effort to streamline the curriculum for the academic year 2022–2023. All educational boards, including the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the UP Board, and other state boards that use the NCERT curriculum, have had to make changes to their curricula as a result of this decision.
Also, the NCERT removed specific texts from the 10th and 11th grade curriculum. For instance, the Class 11th textbook "Themes in Global History" omits chapters on "Central Islamic regions," "Confrontation of cultures," and "The Industrial Revolution." Similar to the Class 10 "Democratic Politics-II" textbook, chapters on "Democracy and diversity," "Popular struggles and movement," and "Challenges to democracy" have been left out.
Students and educators are advised to stay updated on the revised syllabus and obtain the latest textbooks to ensure a smooth transition in the upcoming academic year.
