CBSE Will Stop Many of its Topics Due To Negligible Enrolments

As per the latest updates, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is thinking to stop many of its subjects.

There are existing subjects in which students don’t take interest at all. In past few years there are subjects which are not entertained by the students so CBSE feels that these are better to shut these kind of subjects.

The CBSE board has asked for suggestions from the schools regarding the same matter. These subjects will be announced soon. According to the board, there will be some vocational subjects as well which will be stopped in the curriculum.

The main reason why CBSE is doing do is, only a few students have enrolled in these subjects in past few years.

Here are the stats for the 3 subjects of class 12th namely Theatre Studies, Human Rights and Gender Studies. For each of these subjects only 1 student per subject was enrolled last year across the entire country. The students are given the authority to choose from these optional subjects but the enrolment numbers are negligible.

These subjects are not necessary to adopt by every school. There were a total of 55 optional subjects for the class 12 last year but the number of students enrolled for these elective subjects were very low.

  2. Human Rights and Gender Studies  

  3. Library and Infrastructure Science 

  4. Health Center Management
