At Umang, there is a specific syllabus for each subject, which is prepared by our teachers themselves. Syllabus is prepared as per the standards of National Curriculum Framework 2005. This syllabus is like a guide for teachers. This suggests that at what level which potential and skill should be developed and how it should be done. To fulfill the expectations of syllabus, teachers are free to select the study material of their preference. Our work is not bounded to any particular text book.
