The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) will introduce a new course curriculum for Plus-II from the coming academic session. The new curriculum will be framed in the line of the national level curriculum of CBSE and NCERT. This was announced at the 29th foundation day of the council here on Wednesday.
Vice chairman of the council, G S Acharya said, "Since Plus-II result plays a very crucial role in the career of a child and it is also the minimum eligibility criteria for appearing in most of the all-India entrance tests, the curriculum of the council must be at par with other boards. The syllabi will be revised keeping in view the performance of students in the national level entrance tests like IIT, NIT, AIPMT and AIEEE. Though our text books are up-to-date, we would upgrade the curriculum in consultation with experts." Besides, a series of examination reforms are also in the pipeline to streamline the examination, official sources said.
