Here is what the new pedagogical structure of 5+3+3+4 means, its various stages and impact on existing students

In major “school to college” reforms, the government on July 28 unveiled the new National Education Policy that restructures school education by setting out 3-6 years as pre-school age and dilutes the emphasis on board exams, among other changes. One of the sweeping reforms is the transition from the decades-old 10+2 format to 5+3+3+4 structure. The policy aims at transforming the pedagogical structure from the existing 10 years + 2 years to a more inclusive transition from foundational to the secondary stage.

Here's all you need to know:

* What is the 5+3+3+4 system of education?

The 5+3+3+4 structure brings into fold the already existing play schools within the ambit of ‘formal education'.

* Will the 10+2 system of education now be redundant?

No. With the 5+3+3+4 system of education, the 10+2 system would not change in terms of the years a child spends within the formal education system in the country at the school level. The new structure brings into fold the already existing play schools within the ambit of ‘formal education’.
