Redundant Syllabi to Blame

A revised curriculum will help revive the demand for bifocal courses, especially in commerce and science streams, say academicians. Principals attribute the fall in the number of students opting for bifocal courses to out of date syllabi, and have asked the government to upgrade them to hold students interest.

Redundant Syllabi to Blame

This year, the number of students applying for bifocal s has dropped drastically from nearly 3, 858 to about 1,800, which has impacted cut-offs. "There was a time when vocational education was considered to be a fast-track to the engineering field since the syllabus was attuned to the needs of the industry. But over the past few years, the syllabus has remained the same. Instead of becoming challenging, it has become a set pattern," said Tushar Desai, principal of DG Ruparel College, Matunga.

Naresh Chandra, principal of Birla College of Arts, Science and Commerce, Kalyan, felt that while the syllabus is in need of an update, the fall in number of online applications could be due to a majority of students having applied offline in the minority and management quotas.

A senior education official said that the vocational education department is considering a proposal for upgrading of the syllabus. "It will be implemented for the academic year 2012-13," said the officer.
In bifocal courses, students can opt for any of the six vocational subjects in lieu of the second language and biology or geography. The course is preferred by students, who want to go in for engineering and allied fields.
