CBSE to introduce improvement exams and Sanskrit in the class XI curriculum from 2021-22
The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 implementation plan for schools has been made and work on it has started, the school education department said in a statement on Monday. The notice states several activities to be undertaken in tune with the recommendations in the policy.
In sync with the NEP 2020 implementation plan, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will introduce improvement exams, and Sanskrit in the class XI curriculum from the 2021-22 academic session.
CBSE has already followed the NEP 2020 recommendations by introducing competency based questions in the board exams for classes X and XII.
The education ministry has also informed that the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) incorporating the NEP 2020 will be developed in 2021-22.
The school education ministry prepared a task list and shared it with all the states, Union territories and autonomous bodies in September 2020. Soon after, the ministry had informed that 31 states and Union territories provided more than 7,000 suggestions, which have been implemented.
The school education department’s implementation plan also states that the notification for the learning outcomes up to secondary level has been drafted. The draft of learning outcomes for senior secondary levels has also been released, and suggestions have been invited from all stakeholders.
Schemes such as Samagra Shiksha, Mid Day Meal and Padhna Likhna Abhiyan are also being aligned with recommendations in the NEP 2020.
