CBSE releases Compendium of Academic Courses


After passing class XII, students have to face a very important question: what to do next? The answer to this question can either make or break their career.

Central Board of Secondary Education continuing in its effort to help students has released a compendium of suggestive courses that will help them get information about various course choices and the institutes which offer them. This 122-page long list called Compendium of Academic Courses +2 can be easily accessed by visiting CBSE’s official website: www.cbse.nic.in

The compendium of courses takes into account about 9000 universities and over 41,000 colleges providing higher education from all over India.

113 different courses across different streams and fields have been enlisted along with a brief description of each course and the institutes/colleges offering these courses. The compendium also specifies the eligibility criteria to get admission into these courses.

With its course list, CBSE aims to introduce students to the offbeat and new age courses for higher studies.

Traditional, as well as new courses like Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Instrumentation engineering, and others, have found their way into the list. Other courses such as Astronomy & Astrophysics, Civil Engineering, Information Communication & Entertainment, Metallurgy, Physical Sciences, Computer Science, Cyber Security, Food Technology, Zoology, Ayurveda BMS, Law, Journalism, Fine Arts among others.

The list of compendium courses is to help students get information about various courses after +2.

This list, however, is only illustrative and not exhaustive. CBSE’s aim has been to generate enough curiosity to not only make the students inquire and explore further on the scope of each of the courses listed but also look for options much beyond this list.

“The purpose of this compendium is to generate enough curiosity among students to explore further on the scope, possibilities, and avenues for each of these courses and to look for other options as well,” said Anita Karwal, Chairperson, CBSE.

She further informed that as a part of the new initiative, the Board will also release a combination of subjects which the students can opt for after class X.

This is an earnest effort of the Board to help students, to create awareness among them and to facilitate them in making the right choice of course for pursuing higher education. The Board is optimistic that this list will help children make a smart choice.
