CBSE Revised Syllabus / Curriculum 2021-2022

The curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content to be taught to a learner in the school. In empirical terms, it may be regarded as the sum total of a planned set of educational experiences provided to a learner by a school. It encompasses general objectives of learning, courses of study, subject-wise instructional objectives and content, pedagogical practices and assessment guidelines. The curriculum provided by CBSE is based on National Curriculum
Framework-2005 and seeks to provide opportunities for students to achieve excellence in learning.

Secondary Curriculum provides students a broad and balanced understanding of subjects including languages, Mathematics, Science and Social Science to enable students to communicate effectively, analyse information, take informed decisions, construct their worldview in alignment with constitutional values and move ahead in the direction of becoming productive citizens. The recent focus of CBSE is on the development of 21st century skills in settings where each student feels independent, safe and comfortable with their learning.

The Board is also trying to align curriculum in a way so that children feel more connected to it and employ their learning in real life contexts. To achieve this aim, it is extremely important that children acquire adequate knowledge and skills in other core areas like Health and Physical Education, Life Skills, Values Education, Art Education, Work Education and other Co-Scholastic areas. In operational sense, the secondary curriculum is learner-centered with school being a place where students would be acquiring various skills; building selfconcept, sense of enterprise, aesthetic sensibilities and sportsmanship. Therefore, for the purpose of fostering core competencies in learners, this curriculum encompasses major learning areas, from scholastic and co scholastic point of view.

 

The CBSE areas of learning at the Secondary level are as under:

 

  • Languages 1 (Compulsory): Scholastic Areas
  • Languages 2 (Compulsory): Scholastic Areas
  • Social Science (Compulsory): Scholastic Areas
  • Mathematics (Compulsory): Scholastic Areas
