Karnataka to be the first state to implement the NEP, inauguration today

Karnataka will be the first state to implement the 2020 National Education Policy (NEP). Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will hold a virtual inauguration of the programme in Bengaluru.

Higher education policy directives will be implemented first, followed by school-level initiatives. Pre-primary and primary education directives include adopting mother tongue as a medium of instruction up to class five, as well as modifications to the way board exams are administered. Many of the provisions for elementary education have yet to be implemented due to a lack of infrastructure.

College students, on the other hand, will be able to study inter-disciplinary courses for their degree programmes following their debut. This means that a student can choose topics like math and history if those are his or her passions.

Karnataka’s colleges and universities will all begin to offer multidisciplinary courses. The state also intends to create a programme in which students enrolled in diploma programmes will be able to study abroad in a one-of-a-kind exchange programme. The new policy’s admission guidelines for the upcoming academic year will be announced today. Admissions will be made possible via the Unified University and College Management System (UUCMS). In the first week of October, a redesigned curriculum modelled around the NEP will be available.
