Bengaluru: Coronavirus affect - PU syllabus to be pruned by 30 percent

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Sep 26: As the beginning of the academic year is getting delayed, the department of PU education has proposed to affect a 30 percent cut in the PU syllabus this year.

Karnataka Textbook Society has already forwarded to the government a proposal to affect a cut of 30 percent in the lessons for the PU classes. The PU education department has affected the reduction and sent it to the government for its nod. So far the education department has not approved the cut.


As of now, there is no clarity about when schools and colleges will reopen. The 30 percent cut was proposed on the basis of the speculation that schools and colleges might start classes by September or October. On the basis of days available for teaching thereafter, the 30 percent cut had been recommended.

Degree colleges

In the case of degree colleges, students have already been promoted. The universities have been waiting to receive University Grants Commission (UGC) rules. The department has not yet given thought to how much syllabus can be cut. The higher education department plans to instruct universities to follow regulations after the UGC guidelines are received, and a few modifications at the state level are made.
