The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced a significant policy change aimed at providing relief to students grappling with traditional subjects like Science, Mathematics, and Social Science. According to the new policy outlined in the CBSE Secondary Curriculum 2024-25, students failing any of these three compulsory subjects in Class 10 now have the option to replace it with a skill subject.

The curriculum specifies that if a student fails in any one of the three compulsory subjects but passes in the Skill subject offered as the sixth optional subject, the failed subject will be replaced by the Skill subject, and the Class X Board examination result will be computed accordingly.

Furthermore, the new curriculum addresses the scenario where a student fails in any language subject out of the first five subjects they take. In such cases, the failed language subject will be substituted with the language they’ve chosen as either their sixth subject (if no skill subjects are offered) or their seventh subject (if optional).

The curriculum also emphasizes the importance of students having studied three languages up to Class VIII. Those who couldn’t clear the third language in Class VIII but were promoted to Class IX will be examined by their respective schools at the end of Class IX, using the same syllabus and textbooks prescribed for Class VIII. Students who still haven’t cleared the third language by the end of Class IX may be given another opportunity in Class X. Notably, no student will be eligible to appear in the CBSE Secondary School Examination at the end of Class X unless they have passed the third language. However, children with special needs (CWSN) are exempted from the study of the third language.
