Syllabus for Class 8 to 10+2 to be Upgraded in Odisha



Students of Odisha have not been faring well in national level competitive examinations such as the JEE Main, AIIMS and the NEET (AIPMT). Out of a total of 49,000 students who appeared for the JEE (Main), only 3,200 students could make it to the JEE (Advanced). The results of the JEE (Advanced) allowed only 200 students to get through at the national level. 

In order to remedy the situation, a decision has been taken by the Odisha Government to revamp the state board syllabus from std VIII to std XII, to match the curriculum of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).  The reason for this is that most competitive examinations deal with the syllabi of these classes, said Chief Secretary Shri Jugal Kishore Mohapatra.

Students of schools following the CBSE syllabus have consistently being doing well in the competitive examinations. In fact out of the total of 180 seats offered by IIT Bhubaneshwar, only 12 students could make it through the admission process. These statistics have forced the Odisha Government to re-think the education process in the state.  It is hoped that the changes will help the students of Odisha state boards to do better in national level examinations such as AIIMS, NEET (AIPMT), JEE (Mains) and so on.
