What did IIT and NTA officials say about changing syllabus of IIT, JEE
Due to the lockdown across the country, the challenge is to complete the syllabus in a short time in front of educational institutions.

CBSE has decided to reduce the syllabus from class 9th to 12th in the 2020-21 session. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination has announced to reduce the 10th, 12th syllabus to 25 percent for the year 2021. The Chief Executive and Secretary of the Board even said that we may have to reduce the syllabus even further, we may have to reduce it by 50%.

Since the decision of all the boards including cbse to cut the syllabus, a lot of questions are being raised about the preparation of the main entrance examinations JEE and NEET based on it. In such a situation, the question has been whether there will be a change in the syllabus of these entrance examinations. The New India Times quoted V Ram Gopal Rao, director of IIT Delhi, as saying, ‘We have to look at the content of syllabus and the changes in it. Seeing the change, it has to be handed over to the committee and question makers. Because before setting the question paper, it has to be understood that some topics are no longer part of the syllabus. However, it is important to discuss it now. The New India Times quoted an NTA official as saying, ‘When we introduced our current syllabus to the changed syllabus of CBSE, we found a big difference. Students start preparing for these examinations well in advance. In such a situation, one cannot ignore the changes in the syllabus.
