AICTE -2021-22 -As per new rule, mathematics and physics will not be compulsory subjects for students aspiring to pursue engineering

AICTE has also informed that the unreserved category students must score 45% marks, and reserved category students must score 40% marks in order to pass class 12. Now, those students who are seeking admission to engineering colleges will have to pass 10+2 with any of the three following subjects:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics
  • Biology
  • Computer science
  • Electronics and IT
  • Information practices
  • Technical vocational subject
  • Biotechnology
  • Agriculture
  • Business studies
  • Engineering

Since physics and maths will not be compulsory for students of class 12, AICTE has proposed the introduction of bridge courses in maths and physics by the engineering colleges to strengthen the base of these subjects for students in initial semesters.Teachers from many institutes criticize the move taken by  AICTE
