Part I : School Education
New School Education Structure of 5+3+3+4 years
NEP 2020 New Education Policy envisages that the extant 10+2 structure in school education will be modified with a new pedagogical and curricular restructuring of 5+3+3+4 covering ages 3-18 as shown in the representative figure and elaborated in detail later under Chapter 4 (Curriculum and Pedagogy in Schools).
Currently, children in the age group of 3-6 are not covered in the 10+2 school education structure as Class 1 begins at age 6. In the new 5+3+3+4 school structure, a strong base of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) from age 3 is also included, which is aimed at promoting better overall learning, development and well-being.
