Why is it important to know the syllabus?
The syllabus contains not only the chapters that you have to cover but also each topic that the student must cover. The Central Board of Secondary Education revises the syllabus each year, especially after the pandemic. It slashes or adds the topics and subtopics and quite seldom even chapters for the ease and benefit of the students.
Hence, the students must familiarize themselves with what they have to study first. This will help the students save time and study efficiently as well. Since the students will allot the time only to the required chapters, they would be able to complete the syllabus in time and increase their productivity.
The syllabus gives you perfect knowledge about the weightage of each chapter and its topics. Thus, the students can know which topic is more important and which concept clarity can fetch them more marks.
