In order to make choices even more mobile for students while pursuing their higher education from various institutions in the country as well as abroad, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has formulated guidelines for adoption of uniform Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) across all the universities in 19 undergraduate courses.
The guidelines that the UGC formulated are presently in the public domain for consideration by all the stakeholders including students at large. The apex higher education regulatory has asked for suggestions and feedbacks regarding the guidelines, after which it would put up the guidelines before the expert committee which would be responsible for finalizing the syllabus.
According to DAVV Public Relation Officer, Prof. MS Parmar, “There are 19 BA and BSc courses for which uniform CBCS has been formulated. Syllabi have been prepared for these courses as per guidelines for minimum course curriculum for UGC courses under CBCS. We will be sending feedback to the commission and have also asked students to do the same.”
UGC has also sent a notice to all the universities saying “Numerous measures to enhance efficiency and excellence in the higher education system in the country have been taken up. Reforms undertaken have led to noticeable improvement in standards of education. However, due to diversity of evaluation system followed by different universities in India, students have suffered acceptance of their credentials, at times, across the university system, as well as the employment agencies.”
The students would get their credits that they earn which could further get transferred, helping the students to seek migration from one institute to the other.
