Bodo as Medium of Instruction for Arts Stream 2023-24: A new historic moment to remember for the Bodo community and all of BTR. The AHSEC officially notified the inclusion of Bodo medium of instruction for the Arts stream for 9 Arts subjects from the academic session 2023-24.
Bodo Medium of Instruction for Arts Stream
The Bodo people have reason to celebrate as the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has officially notified to introduce BODO as the medium of instruction for Higher Secondary (HS) Arts courses from the academic session 2023-24. The new instruction is in addition to the existing medium of instruction in AHSEC.
This historic decision by the council will allow students to study their higher education in the Bodo language (the mother tongue of the Bodo people), a significant development in preserving and promoting the indigenous Bodo language. Bodo medium students (up to class 10) who wanted to pursue higher secondary in the Arts stream can now study in their mother tongue (Bodo language).
Many students who studied in Bodo medium schools till HSLC find it quite tricky in the Higher Secondary (HS), as the instruction of teaching changes to English, they need help to cope with the new teaching medium.
