A revolt has been proved futile. The Gujarat high court was in full favor of the mandatory rule of undergoing the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to ayurveda and homoeopathy courses from this year. A division bench headed by chief justice R. Subhash Reddy dismissed a petition in this regard which had been filed by some students challenging the Gujarat Professional Medical Educational Courses (Regulation of Admission) Rules, 2017.

The court came in support of the state by saying that it proved itself in framing these rules making NEET score a necessity for admission into BAMS (ayurveda) and BHMS (homoeopathy) courses. The petitioners went by the previous move in which the students needed to get 50% marks in Class 12 board exam and appear for Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET) for admissions in above mentioned courses. Therefore they appeared for GUJCET and not NEET because of their non interest but the present rules changed the game making NEET clearance a necessity.

IT DISMISSES A PETITION CHALLENGING THE MOVE

In support of their move, the government mentioned that the students of class 12 had been informed well in advance about the new development. And to prove their move the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board had issued a press note on 8 March, which stated that GUJCET would be only for engineering and pharmacy courses, said the government lawyer. Also a news report on 10 February, mentioned about the admissions to medical (MBBS), dental, homoeopathy, ayurveda and naturopathy courses which were to be given on the basis of NEET score, the lawyer said.

Artificial Intelligence, Yoga

CBSE has approved inclusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an optional sixth subject for class 9 students.

CBSE students will now be introduced to the rapidly rising world of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The central education board has approved inclusion of Artificial Intelligence as an optional sixth subject for class 9 students from the upcoming academic session which starts in April 2019. Apart from Artificial Intelligence (AI), CBSE has also introduced Early Childhood Care Education, and Yoga as new subjects.

Recognizing the ‘geo-strategic’ importance of AI, CBSE has decided to offer AI as a sixth optional subject to students of class 9 onwards. Schools can also start a module on AI learning for class 8 students.

The CBSE circular says, “To enhance the multidisciplinary approach in teaching learning and also to sensitize the new generation, it was decided that School may start AI “Inspire module” of 12 hours at Class VIII itself.”

Yoga and Early Childhood Care Education will be introduced at Senior Secondary Level from this academic session.

CBSE is also offering class 10 students the choice to opt for a sixth Skill paper along with the existing five compulsory papers. If a student fails in any one of the three elective subjects (i.e. Science, Mathematics and Social Science), then it can be replaced by the Skill subject (offered as a 6th subject) and the result of Class X will be computed based on best five subjects. However, if a candidate wishes to reappear in the failed subject, they may appear along with the compartment examination.

CBSE has also asked schools affiliated with the Board to offer at least one Skill subject at Senior Secondary level.

Schools need to send the application for starting Skill subjects from 2019-20 session to CBSE latest by March 31, 2019.
