NSUI appeal on syllabi

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Aug 20 - The Kamrup (Metro) unit of National Students� Union of India (NSUI) on Wednesday moved Education Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma and the Chairman of the Board of Secondary Education Assam demanding at least 30 per cent reduction in the syllabi for classes 9 to 12 in view of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

�Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, students across Assam have not been able to attend their regular classes, which has made it very much impractical to make them sit for their final examination with full syllabus,� a memorandum submitted by the NSUI said.

The student body also pointed out that reduction of the syllabi was the need of the hour as a large number of students in the backward areas of the State had not been able to attend online classes.
