The Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) has informed all Higher Secondary Schools and Colleges registered under NBSE that the National Education Policy 2020 emphasises on reducing the content load and providing more space for critical thinking and more holistic, inquiry-based, discovery-based, discussions-based and analysis-based learning.
In this regard, the NBSE Kohima has rationalized the topics in Political Sciences, History, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Accountancy and Business Studies in line with the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) rationalized syllabus. Moreover, the syllabus have been rationalized/dropped in view of the Content, which are easily accessible to students and can be self learnt, which are irrelevant in the present context and overlapping with similar content included in other subjects. The rationalized syllabus will be effective from this academic session ie 2022.
All the Principals have been requested to note the change and disseminate it to their concerned subject teachers so that they can instruct and guide the students properly. The rationalized syllabus will be hosted in the Board’s portal www.nbsenl.edu.in and shared in the district WhatsApp groups. Further, it is to be noted that the rationalized/dropped topics or contents shall not be assessed in the final examinations.
