New Delhi, May 16 (UNI) CBSE has decided to introduce a course in 'Creative Writing and Translation Studies' as an optional elective under academic subjects at senior secondary level.
It can be opted by students as one of the four elective subjects, a Board official said.
''It can also be an additional elective subject at +2 stage in combination with any subjects that are already available in the scheme of studies of the Board,'' he added.
The subject was introduced from the academic session 2007-08 in Class XII for which the Reader was prepared and made available by the Board. Sample Question Papers are also put up on CBSE website (www.cbse.nic.in).
The class XII Reader will be available in the current session.
The Board has, in recent years, introduced a number of new courses-- Biotechnology, Fashion Studies, Multimedia and Web Technology and Entrepreneurship at the senior school level with the view of addressing the emerging needs of the student community.
''The decision is in pursuance of this policy of expanding the choice of subjects for students, particularly in non conventional spheres of knowledge and skills that have bright employment prospects,'' he added.
