CBSE makes 6 subjects mandatory for Class X board exams
13 March 2017 Current Affairs: Students appearing for Class X board exams from next year will have to study six subjects instead of five with the CBSE remodeling its assessment scheme.

Class X students have to now study five subjects — two languages, social science, mathematics and science. Students also have a choice of studying a vocational subject as an “additional” course. However, from the 2017-18 academic year, it will be compulsory to study a vocational subject.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has remodeled its assessment scheme for Class X Board examination for schools offering vocational subject as a compulsory subject under the National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF). If a candidate fails to pass in any one of the three elective subjects — science, social science, mathematics, then it will be replaced by the vocational subject (offered as sixth additional subject).
