UP Board Class 12 Maths Syllabus 2020-21 (PDF): Revised & Reduced By 30%

As the regular teaching – learning in schools, during the session 2020-21, has widely been affected due to the Covid – 19 pandemic, the subject experts committee, after due consideration, has recommended to reduce the syllabus by 30% in the following manner :

Almost 30% reduced syllabus :-
