* Now students up to 5th standard will be taught in mother tongue, local language and national language only. The rest of the subject, even if it is English, will be taught as a subject.*
* Now only 12th board exam will have to be given. Whereas earlier it was mandatory to give 10th board exam, which will not happen now.
* Examination will be held in the semester from 9th to 12th class. Schooling will be taught under the 5+3+3+4 formula.*
At the same time, the college degree will be of 3 and 4 years. That is, certificate on the first year of graduation, diploma on the second year, degree in the third year.
*3 year degree is for those students who do not want to take higher education. Whereas students pursuing higher education will have to do a 4-year degree. Students doing 4-year degree will be able to do MA in one year*.
*Now students will not have to do MPhil. Rather, MA students will now be able to do PhD directly.
*There will be no board exam in 10th.*
*Students will be able to do other courses in between. The gross enrollment ratio in higher education will be 50 percent by 2035. At the same time, under the new education policy, if a student wants to do another course in the middle of a course, then he can do the second course by taking a break from the first course for a limited time.
*Many reforms have also been made in higher education. The reforms include graded academic, administrative and financial autonomy etc. Apart from this, e-courses will be started in regional languages. Virtual Labs will be developed. A National Educational Scientific Forum (NETF) will be started. Please tell that there are 45 thousand colleges in the country.
*There will be same rules for all institutions, government, private, deemed.

Dear member,

The third point in "Special and Important" things says: Now students up to 5th standard will be taught in the mother tongue, local language and national language only. The rest of the subject, even if it is English, will be taught as a subject.

However, in the metros and other big cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore etc., a large number of residents do not know the local language. Take the city of Bangalore. There are a large number of persons from almost all the states of India. Where are the schools that have so many mediums? Furthermore, what if the mother tongue and father tongue is different? Why give primacy to the mother tongue only? Ok. Such students may opt for the national language. But then what if the parents do not wish their children to learn in a language other than English?

I feel that the New Education Policy (NEP) while getting rid of the complications in the existing education system, could bring new ones. The education policy should aim at fostering innovativeness or creativity amongst the children. Will NEP address this basic need?
