Education Minister Dipu Moni on Monday said the government has decided to introduce new curricula in schools and colleges from 2023, removing the divisions of science, arts and commerce up to class X.
"Piloting of the new curricula in class one at primary level and class VI in secondary education level will begin next year," she said.
The Education Minister revealed this information at a press briefing on the National Curricula Framework presentation at the Secretariat.
According to the new curricula, there will be no science, arts and commerce sections up to class X, and they will be trained on technical subjects.
"The new curricula couldn't be introduced in 2021 due to Covid-19 pandemic. Now we'll introduce it in 2023 and the new curricula will be introduced in all classes by 2025," she said.
The government has selected 10 common subjects for all students up to SSC level and students will be allowed to choose optional subjects in class XI and class XII," the minister said.
"There'll be a piloting of new curricula in 100 educational institutions of primary and secondary schools. The new curricula will be introduced for class one and class two while for class VI and class VII in secondary level in 2023. It'll will be introduced for the students of class III, IV,
 VIII, IX in 2014 while for class V and class X in 2025," said Dipu.
Besides, three public examinations will be held under the new system. The class X students will sit for Secondary School Certificate(SSC) examinations, while the students will sit for two more public exams in class XI and class XII and the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations results will be published based on the results of class XI and class XII.
But, there will be no examination up to class III, the minister said.
"The national curricula have been introduced from pre-primary level to class XII. Earlier, the primary and secondary level education was complexly separate. The aim of introducing the new curricula is to make a smooth journey for students from one level to another level and help them to cope up with the new level easily. We're just trying to see the students not facing any problem at the new level," she added.
Steps have been taken so that students can learn most of their lessons in their classrooms, said the Minister.
