• There will be no discernible divide between the arts, sciences, academic, vocational, curricular, and extracurricular disciplines.
• Foundational Reading and Numeracy will be prioritised.
• The 10+2 structure is replaced by a 5+3+3+4 model.
• No state language is imposed on students studying in any state.
• Students are permitted to take the Board Examinations twice.
• Instead of 1.7%, the government will spend 6% of the country’s GDP on education.
• The fund for gender inclusion will be completely established.
• The undergraduate courses will last four years.
• A 4-year integrated B.Ed Course will be required to apply for the position of teacher.
• A Common Admission Examination for admission to HEIs will be implemented.
• The Master of Philosophy programme will be phased out of the educational system.
• In Secondary School, pupils will be able to choose from a variety of disciplines such as arts and crafts, vocational courses, and physical education.
• The PARAKH (Performance Assessment, Review, and Analysis of Knowledge for Holistic Development) organisation will define the standards for Board Examinations. The government will make Indian literature and other classical languages part of the educational curriculum.
