GSHSEB syncs its academic calendar with CBSE

AHMEDABAD: In order to bring uniformity to the academic years of the central board and the state board, the state education department has decided to begin the academic year from April 1 instead of June 1.

As of now, schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) begin their academic year on April 1 while Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) schools begin on June 1.

All primary, secondary and higher secondary schools in Gujarat will begin their 2020-21 year from April 1, immediately soon after the annual exams, as is followed by CBSE schools, a notification states.

Till now, though the process of annual exams used to be completed in early April, five weeks of summer vacations began only from early May.

The month of April was not utilized with hardly any academic activity after the final exams. The new calendar will allow schools to conduct four to five weeks of academic activity ahead of five-week summer vacations beginning in the first week of May.

Officials said the new calendar will add 24 to 30 days of academic activity, to help schools achieve 200-240 academic days a year, across classes.
