A candidate may choose a maximum of three languages from Section IA and Section IB together, according to the guidelines. One of the selected languages must be in place of the domain-specific topics.
Part II offers 27 subjects, of which a candidate can choose a maximum of six subjects, while Part III constitutes the general test.
Section IA, which will be compulsory, will be in 13 languages and candidates can choose the language of their choice.
The language options in Section IA are English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
Section IB is optional and is for students who want to choose another language in addition to those included in section IA.
Some of the languages offered are French, Arabic, German, etc, according to the guidelines.
All questions across the sections will consider Class XII level as a benchmark, it said.
