Students will have to take six more papers than the existing lineup in the HSC examination from 2016.
The decision to implement the new curriculum under the creative question system was made at a meeting at the Education Ministry yesterday.
Education Secretary Mohammad Sadik and senior officials of the ministry were present at the meeting.
The six subjects are economics, logic, information and communication technology, finance, banking and insurance, production management, and marketing and geography.
The meeting also decided that the Dakhil students under the Madrassa Education Board would have to take civic science and citizenship while Alim students have to take economics, physics, biology, civic science and good governance.
From 2017, nine more subjects would be added under the creative question system, the press release said.
The creative question system was introduced at the HSC level in 2012. Between 2012 and 2014, a total of 15 subjects of HSC and Alim were brought under the creative question system.
Speaking at the meeting, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said the ministry wanted to improve the standard of education to meet the demand of the new globalised world.
