SC order for new curriculum of grade 11 & 12


By A Staff Reporter
Kathmandu, Jan. 13: The Supreme Court (SC) has paved the way for the implementation of the new curriculum from grade 1 to grade 12.
A bench of Justices Tej Bahadur KC and Prakash Kumar Dhungana on Tuesday dismissed a petition filed in the apex court against the new curriculum and issued a directive to implement the same.
The court rejected the writ filed demanding non-implementation of the National School Curriculum Framework, 2076. The case was filed by seven persons, including Bhagawat Aryal.
Students, mainly of grade 11, were in confusion regarding the curriculum after a case was filed at the SC demanding that the new curriculum not be implemented.
Due to the confusion, some institutions were teaching old curriculum and others new.
Earlier, the SC had issued an interim order on November 5 inviting the government and others to discuss the issue of the curriculum.
Now, the new curriculum has eliminated the stream-based education like Science, Management, Humanities, Law and Education and made English, Nepali and Social Study compulsory in grade 11 and Life Skill, English and Nepali in grade 12.
This new curriculum will enable the students to choose the subjects from different categories of elective subjects. There are three compulsory subjects and three optional ones in both grades and the students can choose physics and sociology together.
The CDC has categorised the optional subjects in four groups and the students have to choose one subject each from the three groups. The students can also choose one extra subject in both grades which is not mandatory.
