The secondary curriculum provides students with a broad and balanced understanding of subjects, including languages, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science, to enable students to communicate effectively, analyze and interpret information meaningfully, make informed decisions, construct their worldview in alignment with constitutional values, and progress smoothly to be productive future citizens. The recent focus of the CBSE is on developing 21st-century skills in settings where each student feels independent, safe, and comfortable with learning.

The CBSE hopes that schools will try to align the curriculum in a way that children feel more connected to it and employ their learning in real-life contexts. To achieve this aim, it is essential that children acquire adequate knowledge and skills in other core areas like Health and Physical Education, Life Skills, Values Education, Art Education, Financial Literacy, Digital Literacy, and Work Education.
