Hello!! I am currently staying in Johannesburg and my son is studying with the IGCSE Board and has taken up French as a second language. So, basically, he has not been doing Hindi. I want to know- is it possible to get admission to a CBSE school in the XI the grade in India and not take Hindi as a subject. I mean is Hindi compulsory till the 12th grade. Can he appear for the CBSE 12th std board exams without Hindi? Is it possible to pick English and French as the two languages? I hope I am clear with my query. Thanking you in anticipation. Regards,
Hindi is not compulsory in Class XI and XII. Only one language is compulsory so your son can select English.
