The Union Ministry of Education has recently released the draft of the National Curriculum Framework (NCF), which proposes significant changes in the current education system.
The framework, which is in line with the new National Education Policy, aims to provide a holistic and comprehensive education to students across the country.
One of the most significant changes proposed in the framework is the division of the 12th board examination into two terms. This move is aimed at reducing the burden on students and ensuring a more comprehensive assessment of their knowledge and skills.
The first term examination will be conducted in November-December, and the second term examination will be held in April-May.
The NCF draft also proposes to end the division of Science, Commerce, and Arts streams in the 11th and 12th grades. The move is aimed at providing students with a more interdisciplinary and holistic education that prepares them for the challenges of the 21st century.
Speaking about the NCF draft, Union Education Minister, Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan, said, “The National Curriculum Framework is a critical step towards transforming India’s education system.
It provides a roadmap for the development of a comprehensive, inclusive, and holistic education system that prepares our students for the challenges of the 21st century.”
The draft NCF will now be open for public feedback and suggestions before it is finalized and implemented. The Union Ministry of Education has invited feedback and suggestions from all stakeholders, including students, parents, teachers, education experts, and the general public.
The NCF draft is a significant step towards transforming India’s education system and providing students with a more comprehensive and holistic education.
The proposed changes, if implemented, have the potential to revolutionize the way education is imparted in the country and prepare students for the challenges of the future.
