A big news has come out regarding 10th and 12th board examinations. Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has made a big statement regarding the class 10 and 12 board exams.
The Union Education Minister said, ‘It will not be necessary to appear in the 10th and 12th board exams twice a year.’
He said that it will be completely optional and its main objective is to reduce their stress caused by the fear of a single opportunity.
Pradhan said, “The Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) is being restructured because its old version is too broad and the demands of today’s education system are different. At a time when We are having a paradigm shift with NEP, CABE also needs to be revamped.”
He said, “The objections raised by some states on the implementation of NEP are political, not academic. I am still unable to understand what they object to, West Bengal’s alternative document is 99 per cent similar to the NEP”
On the incidents of student suicide in Kota, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that no one’s precious life should be lost, “They are our children. It is our collective responsibility to keep students stress free.”
The Union Education Minister said guidelines for foreign universities to set up campuses in India are being discussed and will be notified soon.
He said that we are going to make a paradigm shift, so we will move ahead after exploring all the possibilities and removing all the doubts.
He further said, “Two IITs are already in the progressive stage of setting up their campuses abroad. Talks are going on with several countries that have expressed interest, the Ministry of External Affairs is coordinating it.”
