Patna: The Bihar State Examination Board (BSEB) has decided to abandon the traditional three faculties in the Intermediate, namely Arts, Science, and Commerce, and instead allow the students to choose from a smorgasbord of different subjects of their choice.

At a meeting held by the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) in Patna on Saturday, its Chairperson Anand Kishore said that the decision to change the system was taken back in 2007 but for some reason or another, the idea did not gain much traction at the time.

"Under the current system, students were forced to declare their faculty whether they intended to study science, arts, or commerce subjects. Students of science were not allowed to take subjects like history or geography. Similarly, students of arts were prohibited from studying physics, chemistry, biology etc. This system restricts the students from pursuing subjects of their choice," Kishore said.

The proposal is now being sent to the Nitish government and barring some extreme situation, it is expected to get the seal of approval so students taking admission in Class XI in 2017 would be able to choose three optional subjects, besides two language courses and a third elective subject, without any restriction, he said.
