Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Education Minister, has stated that students can appear twice for Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations from the academic session 2025-26. The minister stated that the move was aimed at reducing the academic pressure on students.

India's National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 seeks to offer adequate chances for children to thrive academically while reducing academic stress.

Last year, the Ministry of Education introduced the New Curriculum Framework (NCF). According to NCF, board examinations would be held twice a year, allowing students ample time and chances to do well. This will allow pupils to keep their finest marks.

10 bag-free days at schools

Dharmendra Pradhan, the Education Minister, attended an event at the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Auditorium in Raipur.

During the event, Pradhan highlighted the concept of 10 bag-less days in school every year to emphasise engaging students with art, culture and sports among other activities.

He also shared his word about the PM SHRI (Prime Minister Schools for Rising India) scheme which was launched in Chhattisgarh; under that scheme 211 schools (193 elementary level and 18 Secondary ones) in the state will be upgraded. He further said that 2 crore will be spent on each school.

During the event, the Union Minister asked students whether they were satisfied with the choice and advised them to maintain the top grades from both exams.

He also presented PM Modi's vision for the NEP 2024, which aims to keep students stress-free while enriching them with excellent education, connecting them to culture, and preparing them for their future. "This is the formula for making India a developed country by 2047," he went on to say.

While applauding the BJP's governance in the state, he stated that the education sector received top priority when Vishnu Deo became Chief Minister in December last year. The BJP government transformed the state's education system by using the 'hub and spoke' approach.

Under the new model, hub -- the mentor institution, will be centralised and have the responsibility of guiding the mentee institution through secondary branches called the 'spoke,' through services provided to the mentee for self-improvement.

Brijmohan Aggarwal, the Minister of School and upper Education in Chhattisgarh, has suggested that additional secondary and upper secondary schools be added in the next phase, according to Pradhan. He stated that India will seek to host the 2036 Olympic Games, and that he wants Chattisgarh athletes to provide 10% of the country's medals in the quadrennial event, with preparations beginning this year.
