AICTE: Maths Physics are not compulsory for B.tech and B.E...


In a major change, the All India Council for Technical Education has said that Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) are no longer compulsory for students aspiring to pursue an engineering degree in certain courses.

The technical education regulator said students may no longer have to study these subjects compulsorily in high school for seeking admission at the undergraduate level. Naturally, the decision has triggered a plethora of reactions online.

Mathematics and physics are two subjects which have always been quite important for those class XII students who want to become engineers as these subjects are compulsory for getting admission in the undergraduate courses related to engineering.

However, things may change now as recently the All India Council for Technical Education made some amendments in the rules in the approval process handbook pertaining to the year 2021-22. As per the reports, now mathematics and physics will be a part of the list which comprises of 12 optional subjects out of which three subjects are needed for fulfilling the eligibility.
