    The varsities decided to completely fine-tune the syllabus by reviewing the prepared one by March.

    After that, the syllabus would be approved by respective board of studies and academic councils. The campuses would publish the model common syllabus much before beginning of the next session.

    The varsities will follow largely uniform academic calendars and examination schedules from 2015-2016, according to the decision at the Balasore meeting.

    The Vice Chancellors had also agreed on making major (honours) subject compulsory, abolishing the ongoing system of certain students studying only pass subjects.

    1. Uniform syllabus to be implemented for Plus III level across Odisha
    2. Decision was taken by 6 state Universities
    3. From next academic session, Universities will follow grade system replacing the marking system
