The Assam government has reduced class 12 syllabus by 30 percent. Lessons on Jawaharlal Nehru, the Mandal Commission report, Gujarat riots 2002 and writings on caste and marginalisation from the Class 12 state board syllabus have been dropped.

The 30 per cent reduction in the syllabus comes in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The list of topics dropped from the syllabus has been uploaded on official website of Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC). The decision to drop these topics were made by teachers as well as experts.
