The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently proposed significant changes to the academic framework for Class 10 and Class 12, reported.
According to the report, the CBSE suggested a transition from studying two languages to three in Class 10, which will include mandating at least two of these languages must be native to India.
Apart from this, in the passing criteria for Class 10 students, the CBSE proposed increasing the requirement from passing in five subjects to 10.
For Class 12 too, the CBSE suggested inclusion of students studying two languages instead of one, with the prerequisite that at least one must be a native Indian language.
The students will need to pass examinations in six subjects rather than five.
