Until some years ago, students desirous of studying science in the 11th and 12th classes in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) system, had to compulsorily study physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. This I thought was a great improvement over the system that existed in my high school days, when biology and mathematics were made mutually exclusive immediately after the 8th class. However, some years ago the CBSE quietly introduced computer science as an alternative to biology at the 11th and 12th class levels.
