Centre planning for common & unified Science syllabus

Jul 14, 2016 16:51 IST

    In order to bring harmony in the science subjects and question paper designs of state and central boards, the central government has set the ball rolling. According to a Human Resource Development Ministry official, “A few committees with representatives of several boards have had some meetings, and we will discuss their findings to seek convergence among boards.”

    There is a lack of parity in the syllabus of Physics, Chemistry and Maths in both the boards across the nation, resulting in dissatisfaction among many students and their parents. The official further added, “We also need to have the same marks for theory and practical in science subjects, as higher weightage for practical in a board can push up marks.”

    Due to the fact that board examination marks would get counted in the IIT-JEE selection from the next academic session, the lack of parity in syllabus and examination pattern would unfair to many students from across the country. Not only IIT JEE, but any other course that demands scores of the board exams for admissions, can create the same situation for students.

    With higher cut-off marks every year in the major universities, it has become necessary to score higher marks for students. In the CBSE Class XII results this year, only 0.9% of students could cross 95% marks, which is comparatively a very small number for future admissions.

    On the grounds that it could spark a debate between states, convergence of syllabus was never talked before, but centre is now planning to have a dialogue to sort this out in the upcoming years.
