A good news for the students studying in class 9th and 10th, the PSEB (Punjab School Education Board) has revised the syllabus of Computer Science. This has been done in pursuit to underburden the hectic course.

Computer Science is a compulsory subject for the students of class 6th-10th but the syllabus they are studying is way too difficult according to their learning capacity.

“We received feedback from teachers that students, especially in rural areas, were facing difficulty in some topics. Class 9th students faced major problems in MS-Excel. For class 10th, the HTML courses had some unnecessary topics,” said a teacher part of the constituted committee Mohali.

The updated syllabus will be applicable for final exams in 2019-20.
