Karnataka I PUC Portions for Exam- Reduced Syllabus

I PUC reduced syllabus 2021

The Karnataka Pre- University education department declared a significant reduction in the portions to study for the I PUC examination 2021, since the educational institutions are closed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 Pandemic and its resultant lockdown. The remote learning process is often discriminatory to poor and marginalized students. The infrastructure shortcomings also hampered the education system and the teaching-learning process. Considering all these factors, the department has decided to cut down the syllabus by 40% to make things easier for the students.

You can download and refer the updated syllabus here and to check the retained and deleted portions from each chapter of the subjects. Concentrating studies on the retained portions will help you to secure a better grade in the upcoming I PUC Board examination.
