What is NIOS syllabus for class 10th and 12th 2023-24

Are you confused about the new NIOS syllabus 2023-24?

The National Institute of Open Schooling Board announced on their website that they are dividing the syllabus. They also uploaded a PDF with the new curriculum for secondary and senior secondary courses.

But now the pdf file is no longer available on the official website till the publication of my article, so the students are getting tense day by day.

So in this post, I will explain everything to you.

About NIOS syllabus 2023-24

Whenever I meet any NIOS students to discuss the study. Do you know most of the time they say “NIOS syllabus is vast” even though their delivery system of hard copy books is very poor, and “how can I complete the entire chapter in a short time”?

I have been guiding distance education students for the past 13 years, in my teaching career and have seen so many changes from the offline to online era.

But now, management has declared a massive change in NIOS new syllabus 2023-24.

They declare 40% marks for tutor mark assignments (TMA) and 60% for public exams (50% objective and 50% subjective).

Benefits of new curriculum

  • No need to read the whole books
  • it reduced the exam pressure
  • Easy to receive good marks like CBSE and ICSE
  • More objective questions compared to the previous exam

NIOS new syllabus 2023-24 confusion?

As a student, you must have some question which are mentioned below:

  1. Does the bifurcated syllabus apply to all students old and new?
  2. What will be the marking scheme for all the subjects of secondary and senior secondary?
  3. TMA contains 40% of marks but the TMA available on websites showing 20 marks only?
  4. NIOS class 12 syllabus Bifurcation has been done based on old books in the following subjects i.e. Hindi (301), Geography (316), Business Studies (319), Psychology (328), Painting (332). Will they change?

We are checking the official website regularly. If any new notice comes, we will inform you as soon as possible, If you have any question ask me in the comment section.
