FAQs on CBSE Artificial Intelligence (AI) Subject

CBSE has recently introduced Artificial Intelligence (AI) Subject Code 417 for classes 9th and 10th and AI Subject Code 843 for classes 11th and 12th. Students will gain knowledge, skills, and values to understand AI and its implications for our society and the world, as well as to use AI to solve real-world problems now and in the future. Students will interact with a variety of multimedia online resources, as well as hands-on activities and a progression of learning experiences.

Artificial Intelligence is introduced as a subject in CBSE class 6th and 12th with the aim to develop 21st century skills in students while providing them Hands-on experience or practical activity based approach to make them understand AI Applications and Methodologies and its real life implications.

The Central Board of Secondary Education has introduced Artificial Intelligence as a skill subject. As a beginning in this direction, CBSE is introducing Artificial Intelligence as an optional 6th subject at Class IX from the Session 2019-2020 onwards.  At Secondary Level, a Skill subject may be offered as an additional sixth subject along with the existing five compulsory subjects. If any student fails in any one of the three elective subject (i.e. Science, Mathematics and Social Science), then it will be replaced by the Skill subject (offered as a 6th subject) and the result of Class X will be computed based on the best five subjects. However, if a candidate desires to reappear in the failed subject, he/she may appear along with the compartment examination.

As per the revised Affiliation Bye-laws of the Board, a school does not have to apply separately for introducing any additional subject(s), including Skill subject(s), except Physics, Chemistry and/or Biology. The school shall fill the details in the OASIS form and provide the required details.

However, for adequate hand holding, mentoring and training of teachers of the schools that wish to introduce/have introduced Skill subjects/ Skill Modules, the schools should provide the information/ details using the below mentioned links:

(a) For providing information about the Skill Modules (Classes VI– VIII)- Link for providing information :

(b) For providing information about the Skill Subjects in class IX- Link for providing information :

(c) For providing information about the Skill Subjects in classes XI–XII- Link for providing information :
