Courses in finance introduced in classes 9, 10 by CBSE
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), one of the reputed academic board in India, will be launching Financial Market Management (FMM) as a professional study course for Classes IX and X from this academic year itself.
Being a joint certificate course up till now in integration with National Stock Exchange, CBSE has planned to serve FMM as a full-time course with best study materials and approaching schedules.
This whole approach to launch the course with an aim to empower students with rapid and quirky financial education and support, is basically a fragment of the National Skills Qualification Framework steered under the directive of Union Ministry of Human Resource Development’s (MHRD) professional/skills education programs.
Accordingly, the course stays optional, i.e. the schools must be fully equipped with computers with internet connection and skilled staff in order to pursue this program.
With a certain effect, students will be made to practice several modules provided by the National Stock Exchange’s Learn to Trade, which is majorly a 60-hour web-based market replication program.
Online examinations will be conducted for FMM papers by NSE, and the certificate will be jointly affiliated by the CBSE and NSE.
