VOCATIONAL SUBJECTS IN CBSE CLASS 9
In CBSE Secondary School Curriculum for Class 9 and 10 there are two types of additional subjects. These additional subjects include Academic Electives and Vocational Subjects.
A student can select any Vocational Subject as 6th additional Subject. Students can also select another additional subject as 7th subject from Languages or Academic Electives. The additional subjects are optional to study.
IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT ADDITIONAL SUBJECTS:-
If a student fails in any one of the three compulsory academic subjects (i.e. Science, Mathematics and Social Science) and passes in the Skill subject (offered as sixth optional subject), then that academic subject will be replaced by the Skill (Additional) subject and the result of Class 10 Board examination will be calculated from best 5 subjects accordingly.
If a student fails in any language subject, out of first five subjects, the failed language subject will be replaced by the language taken as sixth subject ( in case of no skills subjects offered ) or as 7th subject (optional), provided he or she has passed this language subject and after replacement either Hindi or English remains as a passed language in the first five subjects.
