FROM THE next academic session (2007-08) onwards, students of class IX and XI in the State will study a new syllabus which will have a mix of national and local inputs.
The students will learn the basics of adolescent health and dabble with Vedic Mathematics in the revised syllabi. It is learnt that the board has decided to adopt the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) pattern for English, Science and Mathematics to gear up the students to face national-level competitive exams. Liberal doses of local inputs have been introduced into Social Science, History, Geography and especially in Hindi language.
The revised syllabi for class IX and XI will be implemented from academic session 2007-08 while that for class X and XII would be implemented from session 2008-09. The details of the revised syllabi are available on the website of the board – www.mpbse.nic.in.
As per information available, the MPBSE has decided to adopt the syllabus prescribed by NCERT for the major competitive subjects of English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. The idea is to make the students well versed in the latest of the subjects so that they are able to compete at the highest levels.
However, to acquaint the students better with their roots, more local inputs have been added to subjects like History, Geography and Hindi. Hindi would see more poetries and lessons by and on local authors and poets, local history, spots of tourism and religious interest. Local freedom fighters, freedom struggle inputs and others have been included in subjects of History and Geography, it was learnt. One of the highlights is the introduction of adolescent health in Social Science.
