New Delhi, July 10

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday clarified that other than Classes III and VI, there is no change in the existing curriculum or textbooks. It instructed schools to continue using the same textbooks as the previous year for all classes, except for Classes III and VI.

“To allay any misgivings and for greater clarity, it is reiterated that for all classes other than III and VI, there is no change to the existing curriculum or textbooks. Schools are once again instructed to continue using the same textbooks for these classes as they did in the previous academic year (2023-24),” the CBSE said in a post on X. The board had given this information in March as well.

What's new

  • Class III: Three new subjects - art education, physical education and world around us - introduced. Environmental Studies removed
  • Class VI: Vocational education made mandatory in line with New Education Policy. In English textbook, Poorvi introduced. It contains more Indian prose. There is section on sports & wellness and culture & tradition

The CBSE has also emphasised the importance of adhering to the curriculum guidelines for Classes IX to XII, which include academic content, examination syllabi, learning outcomes, pedagogical practices and assessment guidelines.

Responding to reports stating that Class VI textbooks with revised curriculum would be available in two months, the CBSE said, “All Grade 6 textbooks will be made available by the NCERT in July. The two-month dateline being referred to is incorrect. To provide adequate time to teachers and students for hands-on experiences under experiential learning perspectives and to ensure smooth transition for both teachers and students from old to new curriculum, the NCERT has already made available a month-long bridge programme in all 10 subject areas for Grade 6, which is being used for teaching at present.”

It also clarified that title-wise demand of Class IX and XI textbooks received from Regional Production-cum-Distribution Centre (RPDC), Bangalore, has been met by the NCERT publication division and no shortage has been reported.
