The National Education Policy(NEP) 2020 cleared by the Union Cabinet has proposed changes in school and higher education.
The 10+2 system will be upgraded by a new 5+3+3+4 curricular structure corresponding to ages 3-8, 8-11, 11-14, and 14-18 years. The new policy aims to universalize education from pre-school to secondary level with 100% Gross Enrolment Ratio(GER) in school education by 2030. This system will bring the earliest open age group of 3-6 years under the school curriculum. The new system will have twelve years of schooling with three years of Anganwadi/ pre-schooling. Education up to grade five would be in mother tongue/ regional language. No language should be imposed on any student. Gross Enrolment Ratio will be raised to 50% by 2025 in higher education.
