The Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE) had proposed for a common core curriculum for Science and Maths at the plus two level and this proposal has been approved by the Union Ministry of Human Resource. The first board examination with the newly launched syllabi will be conducted in the year 2013. Thus, students in class XI in the academic year 2011-2012 will face their board exams with this common core syllabus.
A common syllabus for Science subjects will ensure a level-playing field for all students as they prepare for the various competitive entrance exams for admission into professional courses such as engineering and medical entrance examinations.
Most of the school boards in India have agreed to launch the new syllabi for Science and Mathematics. Some state boards such as Andhra Pradesh have decided to implement the core syllabus from the next academic session in 2012.The boards that have agreed to introduce the new syllabi from this academic session include the two national boards, namely CBSE and Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE).
Talks are also underway for the core curriculum approach to be implemented for the Commerce stream as well.
The good news is that with the introduction of a common core curriculum for Maths & Science, class XI students of ICSE/ISC , too will now have the opportunity to benefit from Meritnation.com’s Comprehensive Online Course that includes online learning and assessment solutions for Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
