It is exciting news that the Council For The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) board has announced NEW SYLLABUS for English Literature to ICSE Schools for review, for the academic year 2025. While an official announcement has not been made yet, this development is significant as it aligns with the National Education Policy (NEP) which aims to revamp the education system in India.

The NEP places a strong emphasis on the importance of multilingualism and the need for students to be proficient in at least two languages. The new syllabus for English Literature will aid students in improving their language skills and becoming more proficient in the English language. This will not only benefit them academically, but also in their future careers.

In addition to language proficiency, the new syllabus will also focus on fostering critical thinking, creativity, and analytical skills among students. The curriculum will be designed to encourage independent thinking and engagement with a wide range of literary texts. This will aid in developing a deep understanding of literature and appreciation for the cultural and historical context in which it was written.

The official syllabus for the new English Literature curriculum, starting academic year 2023-24 for Class 9 (and appearing for 10th Board in Year 2025) and Class 11 was released on January 15, 2023. To download the syllabus, visit

In conclusion, the proposed new syllabus for English Literature, which aligns with the NEP, is a welcome development for the education system in India. It will aid students in improving their language skills, becoming more proficient in English, and developing critical thinking and analytical skills. The official syllabus, once released, will provide further information about the curriculum and the learning outcomes that are expected.
