New Delhi: The Ministry of Education has revealed its plans to hold board examinations twice annually, allowing students to select their better score. Additionally, for Class 11 and 12 students, the requirement will be to study two languages, with at least one being Indian, according to an announcement on Wednesday.

The recent curriculum framework introduced by the Ministry of Education signifies that students’ options for subjects in Class 11 and 12 will not be confined to traditional streams, granting them the flexibility to make choices.

A report on the curriculum framework for the New National Education Policy has been submitted to the government, following the direction of the Kasturirangan Committee and the efforts of a steering committee.

Confirming this, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that the Ministry of Education has handed it over to the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) for further action.

NCERT has established two committees — the National Oversight Committee and the National Syllabus and Textbook Committee — for the curriculum.

Pradhan said, “We expect both these committees to prepare a syllabus according to the requirements of the 21st century and based on original Indian thinking”

The Education Minister said, “we want them to prepare futuristic teaching and learning material for class 3 to 12. The first orientation meeting took place today.

“We are confident that new textbooks will fulfil all the requirements, especially when the world is expecting a lot from India, when the PM has shown the dream of Amrit Kaal to the nation.”
