CBSE syllabus in PUC in Karnataka from 2012-13

CBSE syllabus would be introduced in science stream (physics, chemistry, maths, biology) in Pre-University Course (PUC) in Karnataka from the next academic year, Primary and Second Education Minister, Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri, said today.

First year PUC students (11th standard) would have CBSE syllabus from 2012-13 and continue with it next year (12th standard). Those who are in second PUC (12th standard) next year (2012-13) would, however, have state syllabus, he told reporters here.

“The aim is to see that the students are able to compete in all-India exams effectively,” the Minister said.

Bridge course would be conducted after SSLC (10th standard) as students are bound to face some hardship and pressure while switching over to the CBSE syllabus, Kageri said, adding, teachers would also be trained in the process.

Fifth and 8th standard students would have new text books from the coming academic year (2012-13), while the remaining standards would have new books from 2013-14, he said.

Course materials on the lines of CBSE are being finalised by resource persons as per the National Curriculum Framework 2005, the Minister said, adding extensive consultations had been held with former education ministers, experts and NGOs on updating content in tune with present times.

Meanwhile, Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri said said the Government would open a security press at Peenya here in the next financial year.

Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri also said the two-day “Kadambotsava-2011”, a mega cultural fest, would be held at the ancient city of Banavasi in Uttara Kannada district from December 24. On the occasion, the coveted “Pampa Prashasti” award would be presented to acclaimed Kannada literary figure Chandrashekar Patil (Champa) by Karnataka chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda.
