CBSE Class 10 English Language and Literature Deleted Syllabus for 2020-2021

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) keeps on working on its study material and course structure to provide its students with a better learning experience each time. Now, when the whole world is going through a difficult phase of COVID-19 pandemic, the board took the initiative to relieve its students of stress and anxiety. Due to being unable to attend classes for the past few months, there has been a lot of loss of students' studies. So, CBSE decided to cut down the syllabus to compensate for this loss. The board reduced the syllabus of all subjects of Class 9th to Class 12th by 30%. This revised syllabus will be applicable for all the exams including internal assessments, periodic tests, pre-boards (for 10th, 12th) and the year-end examinations to be conducted in the current academic session 2020-2021.
