CBSE Plans To End 10+2 Education Format, To Adopt 5+3+3+4 Pedagogical Structure: Reports suggest that one of the more popular educational Board in India, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will soon announce that they are scrapping the 10+2 educational format. In addition, they will adopt a 5+3+3+4 pedagogical structure. Following the guidelines established by the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), the CBSE plans to spruce up the Board exam structure. Although the officials have not laid out the entire exam structure, the CBSE chairperson, IAS Nidhi Chibber, has confirmed that it is time to end the old 10+2 system and welcome changes in the school education framework in India.
Highlights of the Newly Proposed CBSE Education Structure
The Board has confirmed that they will inform all CBSE-affiliated schools about the alterations to their existing framework. Moreover, not much is made public about the new pedagogical structure. Nonetheless, here are a few focal points that students and their parents must be aware of: -
- The Board will guide schools to transition from the 10+2 to the 5+3+3+4 framework.
- CBSE will create a registry of schools, teachers, and students to track the progress of the newly-adopted system.
- NEP 2020 includes a salient feature encouraging younger children, i.e., aged 3-6 years, to enrol in school education. In accordance with this feature, the CBSE plans to include younger children in their school education system. Besides, many CBSE schools have started granting admissions to children aged 3 or 4 through pre-nurseries or preparatory schools.
- The new 4-stage framework is adopted by a NEP 2020 feature which states the fact that our education system must be categorized into 4 groups -
- Foundational Stage,
- Preparatory Stage,
- Middle Stage, &
- Secondary Stage.
- Classes 10 and 12 Board exams will continue. However, the examination system will change. The objective is to clear the time students spend on coaching.
Recent times have indicated that our society must ramp up the modern-day education system. We cannot move forward if we do not acknowledge the changing times and take the necessary measures.
