Best Highlights of The National Education Policy 2020 in Graduation Levels.
4-year of Undergraduate programme FYUP
- NEP 2020 adopted a four year UG programme, which was earlier proposed by Dinesh Singh ( former V-C of DU)
- In FYUP, the conventional three-year Bachelor’s degrees will remain, there will now be a four-year “multi-disciplinary” Bachelor’s programme.
- Students opting for a three-year Bachelor’s programme can choose a two-year Master’s programme which could be followed by a PhD.
- Students opting for the four-year Bachelor’s degree with Research can go for a one-year Master’s which is expected to make students ready for a PhD programme.
- To enrol for a PhD, a Master’s degree or the four-year Bachelor’s degree with Research is now mandatory; it is not clear whether this is referring to a year-long or a two-year Master’s degree(In Defence of MPhil, n.d.).
Dropping out? Don’t worry you ‘ll gain your credit!
According to the survey conducted by National Sample Survey Organisation, In this decade there is an increase in students opting for higher education but the survey also showed that the people who are dropping out is also increasing. We have discussed the example of fish who understand its passion later in their life; Drop out happen when the students have no more interest in continuing the education or when he/she identifies his passion in a different subject. If someone drops the course, what he/she earns is knowledge related to that course and countless shame.
- NEP 2020 focus on giving credits even though one could not complete his full education.
- If a student drops in the first year, the student will get a certificate.
- If the student drops in the second year, will get a Diploma.
- The students completing the third year will get a bachelor’s degree.
- The student completing the fourth year will receive a bachelor’s degree with research.
Flexibility in Subject.
As per the second NEP (1986), the students were not having enough freedom to chose their combinations of subjects. The students could only make their selection after the tenth standard. ( Computer science, bio maths, commerce…). Even in college, the students have to go with the complimentary coursed decided by the department.
- The NEP 2020 envisages broad-based, multi-disciplinary, holistic undergraduate education with flexible curricula, creative combinations of subjects, and integration of vocational education.
- Now the students could choose the subjects according to their passion ie: if a student like chemistry and maths but hate physics, he/she could choose another subject.
- This will help the students to learn different dimensions as per their passions.
- The students will be able to choose major and minor disciplines regardless of the subject combinations that have existed until now.
- This is expected to benefit those who are interested in multi-disciplinary courses.
- . There will be no rigid separations between arts and sciences, between curricular and extracurricular activities, between vocational and academic streams.
- According to the new National Education Policy, foreign universities will now be able to operate in India.
- This move will add ease for students who would like to seek foreign education and save them a lot on dollars. It will also raise the quality of higher education and accessible for a larger section compared earlier.
- The move will allow 200 top global universities to operate in India and provide quality education and raise standards of India varsities as well.
Summing up, the new NEP 2020, the policy has brought many significant changes to the Education especially focusing on a “modern-demand” of education. The NEP 2020 was widely accepted by the education experts, teachers and students all over the nation. The base put forward by the Narendra Modi’s Government in the education system has become a success but the real essence lies in the implementation of the NEP 2020, which have to be catered from the top cities to the rural areas of the nation.
