CBSE Reduced Syllabus Class 10 for the session 2020-21 is available in myCBSEguide Mobile App. Students can download the deleted syllabus in PDF format. We know that CBSE has reduced the curriculum by 30% this year. Every student is excited to know which topic or chapter is deleted. This post will guide you through all such topics and chapters.
CBSE Reduced Syllabus Class 10
Although, CBSE has cut the syllabus in all the subjects yet Maths and Science are the two most important subjects to check. Why it is so, let’s understand. Compare to other subjects, CBSE has not deleted whole chapters in these two chapters. Hence, it is difficult to find a reduced portion in Maths and Science. Surprisingly, the deducted part and remaining part are interconnected and you can’t understand the concepts independently.
