    Class 12 Subjects That Are Not Mandatory For Admissions In These Courses, Check Details



    Class 12 subjects that are not mandatory for admissions in these courses: Physics, chemistry, and maths will no longer be mandatory subjects for admission to undergraduate courses in architecture, according to the approval process handbook for 2022–23 released by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

    Class 12 subjects that are not mandatory to take admissions in certain courses were announced by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Tuesday. Physics, chemistry, and maths will no longer be mandatory subjects for admission to undergraduate courses in architecture.

    The other two courses which will not mandatorily require PCM subjects in Class 12 are fashion technology and packaging technology. Last year, there was an uproar among students who did not study physics, chemistry, or maths (PCM) to be admitted to their desired courses.

    CLASS 12 PCM NOT REQUIRED

    “We have constituted an expert committee to make recommendations on admissions for which courses PCM can be made optional. On the basis of the panel’s recommendations, three courses have been chosen,” the AICTE said.

    CLASS 12 SUBJECTS ELIGIBLE FOR ADMISSION

    Besides PCM, the subjects which are eligible for admission in the three courses include computer science, electronics, information technology, biology, informatics practices, biotechnology, technical vocational subject, agriculture, engineering graphics, business studies, and entrepreneurship.

    The AICTE has also decided that two supernumerary seats per course will be reserved for COVIDorphaned children covered under the ‘PM CARES’ scheme in all affiliated polytechnics from the upcoming academic session 2022-23.

    PM CARES CERTIFICATE FOR CLASS 12 STUDENTS

    The reservation of two seats per course will not impact other children because institutes admitting students under this clause can increase their sanctioned intake capacity by two.


    “Such children who are issued a ‘PM CARES certificate’ shall be eligible for admission to polytechnic institutions under the supernumerary quota,” the AICTE’s new approval process booklet stated.

    AICTE SPECIAL CATEGORY STUDENTS

    The scheme covers all children below 18 years who lost both parents, surviving parent, legal guardian, or adoptive parent due to Covid19 between March 3, 2020, the date on which the WHO declared and characterised Covid-19 as a pandemic, and February 28, 2022.
    In a new addition, the council has this year made provisions for additional seats for “gifted and talented” students in institutions approved by it.
    “Two supernumerary seats shall be accorded by the AICTE in its approved institutions for empowering gifted and talented students to seek admissions to these seats, which will provide a motivating and unique opportunity for such students in line with NEP [National Education Policy] recommendations,” the handbook said.
    “The AICTE shall devise norms for selection of gifted and talented students under a supernumerary quota and final admission shall be approved by the AICTE.”
