 National Education Policy 2020 in para 4.38 emphasised the need of offering subjects at two levels to introduce greater flexibility in options available to students suiting their future course of studies. As school education aims at equipping students with the specific competencies they need for their future academic and career paths, subjects at two levels aligning more closely with varying interests, provide opportunities to those students who would otherwise miss these subjects altogether.

In pursuance of the above-mentioned recommendation of NEP-2020, CBSE announces the introduction of Communicative Sanskrit (Code No.119) and Communicative English (Code No.101) (CBSE Circular No.: Acad-25/2022) :in class IX from the academic session 2022. The same will be extended to class X in the year 2023-24. Both the levels are based on the same educational aims, curriculum and syllabus, and assessment models followed by CBSE.

It is highlighted that the newer communicative level is not the diluted version of the language and literature level; however, it will include a range of additional communication-based activities to allow students to explore communicative aspects in more depth following more personalised and localised language adapted to their interests. The assessment competencies will be equally demanding for both the levels and assessments will be standardised and graded following the same stringent principles followed by CBSE for all its subjects.

A student will be eligible to offer only one level i.e., either Communicative or Language and Literature of Sanskrit and English. Schools desirous of offering these languages do not need any special permission from CBSE and existing faculty can be used to teach these subjects following the administrative norm of the state regarding the number of weekly classes to be taught by a teacher. Schools would reflect these subjects in the registration details of students for class IX as per the procedure. The syllabus and textual material for these languages will be available on the CBSE academic website from April 2022.(Source:CBSE)
