CBSE has recognised that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has gained geo-strategic importance in the past few years. So the board has introduced the subject to make India’s next generation to be ‘AI ready’. Although AI will be introduced from class 9, schools are free to start an AI module in Class VIII itself.

Considering the huge requirement of Yoga Professionals and Early Childhood Educators, Board has decided to introduce Yoga and Early Childhood Education as an Elective subject from class 11thl.

CBSE will ensure the successful implementation of all skill subjects by providing necessary support, training and other aspects. Schools should choose any one or more skill subjects for the students of class IX & XI mentioned on the official website. To introduce skill subjects for session 2019-2020, the schools will have to apply online by 31st May 2019.
