|Changes in HS Commerce stream curriculum|
GUWAHATI, Aug 27 - The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has introduced some changes in the curriculum of the HS Commerce stream, to be made effective from the HS First Year batch of 2020-2021.
The subject ‘Banking’ has been renamed as ‘Finance’ and the subject ‘Commercial Mathematics and Statistics’ has been renamed as ‘Business Mathematics and Statistics’ without any change in the syllabus of the subjects.
Under the new system, the subjects Business Studies and Accountancy are not considered as core subjects but the students of Commerce stream must have to take the examination of both the subjects and will have to secure at least pass marks in both subjects.
For result purposes, marks of the best three elective subjects will be considered to determine their division.
“The steps have been taken in view of some difficulties faced by the students in obtaining marks. AHSEC consulted a number of academic experts before taking the decision,” AHSEC Secretary Manoranjan Kakoti said.
