This is a very interesting bit of tidbit. Recently, the CBSE finished the 10th and 12th class Board exams. While a total number of over 31 lakh students appeared for the exams, there were some subjects which did not have even 10 takers right across India.
According to the data released by the board, the least taken subjects include — Carnatic Music, Mohiniyattam Dance, Health Centre Management, theatre studies, and library information science for class 12. Despite the low attendance, these exams were held and even for certain languages including Bhutia, Lepcha, Limboo, Tanghkul, etc.
One student appeared for Human Rights exam and one appeared for Theatre Studies in Haryana. Five students from all over India appeared for Library and Information Science and 12 appeared for Philosophy.
This is indeed very heart warming that despite the low student turnout for some subjects, the Board decided to go ahead and formulated exams, even when it was just one student. This is education at its best!
