it is not in the syllabus because the syllabus mentions only the general characteristics of d-block and f-block elements..and electrode potential is a measure to compare the oxidation states, which is a characteristic of d-block elements.  you dont really need to cram the electrode potentials but you just to need to know the trend of electrode potential in general and that too, just for 3d series i.e. Sc to Zn.
so relax and all the best!!!
