School system: 

The 10+2 system will be divided into 5+3+3+4 format. The first five years of school will comprise of the foundation stage including three years of pre-primary school as well as classes 1 and 2.

The next three years will be divided into a preparatory stage from classes 3 to 5 and following that, three years of middle stage (classes 6 to 8), and four years of secondary stage (classes 9 to 12).


Co-curriculum and vocational subjects like sports, arts, commerce, science will be treated at the same level.


Students can opt for courses as per their preference.


Students will be allowed to take up coding from class 6 onward.


Skills, such as analysis, critical thinking and conceptual clarity will be taught in school.


Report cards: 

The report cards of students will be reviewed by peers and teachers.


Artificial Intelligence-based software could be developed and used by students to help track their growth through their school years based on learning data and interactive questionnaires for parents, students, and teachers.


To track progress, all students will take school examinations in grades 3, 5, and 8 which will be conducted by the appropriate authority.



Board exam: The class 10 and 12 board exams are likely to be held in two difficulty levels and a second chance will be given to students at boards to improve their score.


They will be free to take up courses regardless of the stream division of arts, commerce and science.


A system of annual or semester or modular board exams could be developed to test far less material, and taken immediately after the corresponding course is taught in school so that the pressure from exams is better distributed and less intense.


Language policy: 

Until class 5 and preferably till class 8, the medium of instruction should be “home language/mother tongue/local/regional language.


Thereafter, the home or local language should continue to be taught as a language.


Freedom is given to the state, region, and child to chose three languages to be learned. However, at least two of the three languages should be native Indian languages.


Common entrance exam for admissions: 

A common entrance examination (CEE) for admissions to universities across the country would be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA).


A common aptitude test, as well as specialised common subject exams in the sciences, humanities, languages, arts, and vocational subjects, will be held at least twice every year.


According to the policy, it will allow most universities to use these common entrance exams – rather than having hundreds of universities each devising their own entrance exams, thereby drastically reducing the burden on students, universities and colleges.


It will not be mandatory and will be left to individual universities and colleges to use NTA assessments for their admissions.
