Phased schools were started after Corona’s cases decreased.
Meanwhile, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) cut the curriculum by 30 per cent last year. This year also CBSE has done the same. The Gujarat Board also reduced the syllabus by 30 per cent last year. But this year the Gujarat Board has not announced any reduction in the syllabus, but the administrators, students and teachers have made representations in this regard.
The president of the state governing body has proposed to cut the curriculum as soon as possible. But so far the Gujarat Board has not officially announced the curriculum reduction. Recently, the Gujarat Board announced the schedule of the examination. In which it was stated that no cut will be made in the syllabus.

Taking note of which, the Minister of Education has instructed the department to take appropriate action.
