CBSE announces change in curriculum only for classes 3 and 6


On July 10, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) requested that all schools adhere to the current curriculum and use the same textbooks for all courses, with the exception of courses 3 and 6. The board has requested that the textbooks be used in the schools exactly as they were in the academic year 2023–2024.

The purpose of the CBSE release is to provide more clarification and to dispel any doubts. Referencing a circular that was released on March 22, 2024, the board instructed schools to adopt updated NCERT textbooks for grades 3 and 6 until 2023. The curriculum and materials for other classes for the academic year 2024–25, which began on April 1, 2024, would remain unchanged, it was further emphasized.
