Accountancy and Commerce

Accountancy and Commerce Subject Committee Members

Accountancy as a subject of study was introduced in our education system in classes XI and XII, ever since the introduction of modern education. Currently, schools offering Commerce stream are using the curriculum developed and published in India. Since we continue to use Accountancy curriculum written for their context, it is less relevant and practical for our needs and context. The National curriculum review conducted in 2016 also pointed out the importance of developing accountancy curriculum framework.

Therefore, realizing the urgency to develop Accountancy curriculum materials that best suit our needs rather than relying on the curriculum that is unfamiliar to our learners, attempt is being made to develop our own curriculum. Accountancy curriculum framework was drafted during the winter of 2016 and accordingly plans and programmes are put in place to ensure that the new curriculum can be implemented by 2019.

The new Accountancy curriculum is an attempt to offer ready employment to students who do well in the subject, thus offering them lifelong enriching careers such as accountant, auditor, banker, financial analyst, tax consultant, management consultant and so on. The framework also contains broad and comprehensive accountancy knowledge and skills to make learners academically sound and prepare them towards future career path in accounting related vocations, as well as providing them adequate foundation for pursuing higher professional and academic courses in accounting.
