Special and important things:
Board will be in 12th class only, MPhil will be closed, college degree of 4 years
10th Board Khatm, MPhil will also be closed,
Now students up to 5th will be taught in mother language, local language and national language only. The rest of the subjects, even if they are English, will be taught as a subject.
Now only the board exams have to be taken in the 12th standard. Whereas before it was mandatory to take the 10th board examination, which would not happen now.
Examination will be done in the semester from 9th to 12th class. Schooling will be taught under the 5 + 3 + 3 + 4 formula.
College degree will be 3 and 4 years old. That is, certificate will be given on first year of graduation, diploma on second year, degree in third year.
3-year degree is for those students who do not have to take higher education. At the same time, students doing higher education will have to do a 4-year degree. Students doing 4 years degree will be able to do MA in one year.
Now students will not have to do MPhil. Rather MA students will now be able to do PHD directly.
Board exam will not be done in 10th.
Students will be able to take other courses in between. By 2035 the gross enrollment ratio will be 50 percent in higher education. At the same time, under the new education policy, if a student wants to do another course in the middle of a course, then he can take a second course by taking a break for a limited time from the first course.
Many improvements have also been made in higher education. Improvements include graded academic, administrative and financial autonomy. Apart from this, e-courses will be started in regional languages. Virtual labs will be developed. A National Educational Scientific Forum (NETF) will be started. Please tell that there are 45 thousand colleges in the country.
Uniform rules will be for all government, private, deemed institutions.
