Here is an official guide for PUC science students ahead of their final exams. The Department of Pre-University Education has come out with ‘blowup syllabus’ for physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology to help them study only what is needed for the exams.
The blowup syllabus should be used for preparation, examination and evaluation, states a circular issued last week.
The precise syllabus, according to officials, has been prepared to help students focus on specific chapters and units that are required.
“It is more specific and accurate for students to prepare,” Director of the department Ramegowda said. “It has been prepared by subject experts and resource persons to ease out the syllabus. The blowup syllabus will go on to act as a guide for future batches,” he added.
The department introduced National Core Curriculum for science last year, which was modelled on the CBSE syllabus.
The blowup syllabus has been prepared for both first and second PUC science subjects (PCMB). They can be accessed on the department’s website www.pue.kar.nic.in.
“This is the first batch of II PUC students who will take the exams based on the new CBSE-modelled syllabus. This is our attempt to help them prepare better with the new syllabus,” Ramegowda added.
“For example, if there are 25 experiments illustrated in a subject, students will require only 15 of them. The blowup syllabus contains specific chapters that students need to focus on,” said Honnaiah, Assistant Director (academics) of the department.
Somashekhar Prasad, a chemistry professor at Surana College, Jayanagar, said the blowup syllabus helps students, but not the teachers.
“We are on the verge of completing the syllabus. If this was brought out earlier, we could have focused on what was necessary,” Prof Prasad said.
The first PUC exams will commence February 20 onwards and the II PUC exams will begin March 12. The physics, chemistry and biology question papers will follow a 70 theory and 30 practical pattern.
