## Telangana State Board Class 8 Syllabus

The Telangana 8th curriculum and syllabus are created by the SCERT. The following is a list of the Telangana Class 8 Math, Social Science, and Science Syllabus and other subject syllabi:

*Also, note that SCERT Telangana sometimes does not publish the *class 8 syllabus for a particular year. In this case, the old Telangana board syllabus for class 8 remains valid. However, if the State Council of Educational Research and Training Telangana publishes the *class 8 revised syllabus in any year, then in that session, the new Telangana Board Class 8 Syllabus is used.*
