Mathematics And Physics Not Mandatory For Engineering - AICTE
The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has
issued an approval process manual for the 2021-22 academic year.
The "AICTE Handbook" emphasizes
this point; Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics will continue to be important
subjects in core engineering streams such as mechanical engineering.
However, for courses such as Textile
engineering, Agriculture or Biotechnology, students may choose not to
study these three subjects in class 12.
Those who do not choose these courses will
have to make up for it through university bridge courses.
This rule will be
implemented from the 2021-22 academic year.
According to regulations, students who
want to apply for certain engineering courses (such as Textile engineering,
etc.) must pass Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Electronics and IT,
Computer science, Technical Vocational Subjects, Information practice, and
Biotechnology , Agriculture, Engineering and Business research.
The new rules also stipulate that
students in the non-reserved category must score 45%, and students in the
reserved category must score 40% in order to pass the 12th level.
