 85 total views

The CBSE class 12 accountancy syllabus majorly focuses on enhancing the student’s knowledge in the accounting sector. The entire curriculum is designed to make the student understand the importance of accounting. It also enhances the ability of students to perform accounting tasks. But recently, CBSE has reduced 30% of the class 12 syllabus of accountancy for the academic year 2021-22. This deduction is made considering the less time remains with the student for the preparation. Even some topics are simplified instead of a deduction. So, all the students must look at the new revised syllabus before going for the exam.
