New Curriculum To Include
- A focus on activity-based learning

The new curriculum aims to make learning more holistic and application-based. It will focus on developing critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills.

NCERT is creating brief guidelines for class 3 and a bridge course for class 6 for new study areas and pedagogical approaches.
Capacity-Building Programs
To familiarise teachers with the new teaching and learning perspectives, the board has planned capacity-building programs.
Fifth Revision By NCF
The Ministry of Education announced the changes to the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) after eighteen years. Earlier, it was revised in 1975, 1988, 2000 and 2005.
Last Syllabus Rationalisation In 2022
The NCERT had rationalised the curriculum for classes 6 to 12 in 2022 to "reduce the content load" on students.

For now, the changes apply only to grades 3-6. But stay tuned! The NCERT might introduce similar reforms for other grades in the future.
