As per the new scheme students will have to study two language papers, science, social science, mathematics, and additional vocational subject. If a candidate fails to pass in any one of the three elective subjects, i.e. science, social science, mathematics, then it will be replaced by the vocational subject (offered as sixth additional subject). The board exam result will be computed accordingly. However, if a candidate desires to reappear for the failed subject they can appear in the compartment examination.

This scheme of assessment has been introduced for 13 different subjects in vocational studies.
