With effect from the session year 2021-22, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has made Mathematics and Physics optional in Class 12 even for the students who want to get admission to B.E. and B. Tech courses. So as the eligibility criterion is changed, one can apply for the competitive examinations or admissions leading to admission in CSE stream.
The students doing their class XI and XII will now have an option of choosing any three subjects out of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Electronics, IT, Biotechnology, Information Practices, Technical Vocational Subject, Agriculture, Engineering Graphics, Business Studies, and Entrepreneurship.
One thing that a student should keep in mind in this changed scenario is that when there is an entrance exam for engineering in IITs or any other engineering institute through JEE mode one will have to perform well in that and from that point of view selection of subjects in class XII is also a crucial factor and accordingly one has to opt the subjects and prepare for the class XII as well as that particular engineering entrance exam including of course the prestigious IITs.
Knowledge is power.
