Did you hated ‘Chemistry’ out of the PCM trio (Physics, Chemistry, and Maths) but had to study to get into engineering? Well not anymore. The recent announcement from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has sorted things up.

Chemistry

AICTE has ruled that Chemistry is not mandatory for admission into BTech and BE courses in the country. Students who have completed higher secondary with Physics and Mathematics along with other optional subjects including Biology and Biotechnology would also be eligible to get into engineering courses from the next academic session.

From the next academic session that is 2020-21 the Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics must for engineering streams would be done away. Physics and Mathematics would, however, remain mandatory for pursuing BTech and BE degrees.

Chemistry

However, as far as the engineering entrance exams like JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) are concerned there are no updates that whether Chemistry would be removed from the syllabus or not.

The National Testing Agency conducting JEE (Main) exam would publish its response to AICTE’s move in the upcoming session before the move comes into effect. Those having optional subjects like Biotechnology, Biology, Computer Science, Information Technology, Informatics Practice, Agriculture, Engineering Graphic and Business Studies along with Physics and Chemistry would also be eligible for admission in engineering and related courses once the move comes in effect. At present nearly 3,000 institutions offer 13.2 lakh undergraduate degrees in engineering and technology.
