The state government has cleared a proposal to introduce Applied Hindi as an optional subject for HSC students from the academic year 2013-14 so that language too becomes a scoring subject. School education minister Rajendra Darda has cleared the file that sought administrative approval for introduction of Applied Hindi as an optional subject for Class XII (HSC) students, a senior education department official said.
The Marathi or Hindi subject syllabus primarily focuses on literature. Finding it difficult to score high in language subjects, most students prefer giving more attention on other subjects to build up the aggregate percentage. Introduction of Applied Marathi and Hindi will change student’s traditional approach towards the language. Also, the introduction of applied subject will help students acquire job-oriented skills, said Prakash Parab, head of the department, Marathi department, Vaze Kelkar College, Mumbai. Deepak Pawar, president of Marathi Abhyas Kendra, said, Ideally, Marathi should be first and English should be the second language for the board syllabus. But if the government is insisting on English to be the first language then the state should make Marathi as the second language. However, a senior DF minister said, Religion, caste, community and such issues should not be the parameters while making education-related policies.
Science paper has SSC kids worried:With the new SSC syllabus focusing on application-based questions, students, who appeared for their science paper on Monday, said more than half the questions were out of the syllabus. My son would not score above 25 in the 60 marks paper, said Manisha Singh, parent of a student. Board officials and exam moderators, however, said that students should not worry.
