Meanwhile, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), reduced its syllabus by one-third. The board had decided to scrap certain topics from each subject.
The board came under scrutiny, immediately after it released the revised curriculum, for removing chapters in an 'ideologically driven' move.
CBSE, and later HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' too, issued clarification that the topics were removed as a one-time measure only. The board also said that the topics will still be taught in class but will bear no weightage in the board exams.
CBSE also clarified all the topics have been duly included in the Alternative Academic Calendar developed by NCERT.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Board announced class 12 Science results yesterday, within 18 days of concluding the exams in June. The board also concluded exams for remaining two class 10 papers in June and is yet to announce result dates.
