On questions arising as to why topics were deleted, NTA informed that due to the COVID-19 scenario, various school boards deleted portions of each subject's syllabus. The deleted portions were still not being taken back by these boards and the deletions were not uniform across various boards. Hence, several requests were received by the NTA for the revision of the syllabus.
