NCERT to introduce new syllabi and textbooks for classes 3 and 6

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced that the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) will introduce new syllabi and textbooks for classes 3 and 6 starting from April 1, 2024, for the academic year 2024-25.

The rest of the classes will continue with the current curriculum and textbooks.

CBSE, through a communication to all affiliated institutions, said that NCERT, in a letter dated March 18, disclosed its continuing development of new syllabi and textbooks for classes 3 and 6.

Schools have been advised to adopt these new materials, replacing NCERT-published textbooks until 2023.

These measures are part of the broader framework outlined in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, with a specific focus on the new national curriculum framework for school education (NCF-SE) 2023.

The CBSE said that efforts are underway to develop a transition plan, including a bridge course for class 6 and streamlined guidelines for class 3, to ensure a seamless alignment with NCF-SE 2023.

"There will be no change in the Curriculum and textbooks for other classes for the academic year 2024-25 commencing from April 1, 2024," the CBSE said.

Schools have been asked to adopt the recommendations outlined in NCF-SE 2023, incorporating methodologies like multilingualism, art-integrated education, and experiential learning where feasible.

The CBSE said, "Schools are advised to align their practices with the recommendations delineated in NCF-SE-2023. This includes adherence to guidelines concerning content, pedagogical strategies, assessment methodologies, and other pertinent areas as communicated by the board from time to time."

This development cones after NCERT's efforts to rationalize syllabi for classes 6 to 12 in 2022, with the goal of reducing the content burden on students amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Significant revisions included the elimination of chapters covering diverse historical and political subjects.
