Universities are asked to fasten up Semester Examinations by UGC

Jan 12, 2015 15:38 IST

    UGC has asked all the universities to take adequate measures and quick actions for semesterisation of their course curricula and grading system, in order to incorporate choice based credit programme in colleges and universities from the next academic session.

    The success of recently launched ‘Choice based credit system’ and ‘Credit framework for Skill Development’ depends heavily on the change in the academic sessions and make it a uniform one across the country, so that the students could become mobile while they are pursuing their courses from any of the universities in the nation. It is also needed to standardize the examination across the universities and switch over from the numerical marking to that of the grading system throughout the nation.

    These reforms could allow the students to not only have wider possible options of subjects from various disciplines but would also get huge amount of mobility across all the institutions in the nation. In order to make this happen, UGC would set up a facilitation cell, which would help assist the universities to know more about the new scheme. Earlier, the State Education Ministers with a meeting chaired by HRD minister Smriti Irani, agreed to implement these two new systems in their academics from the very next session. Suggestions were made in the meeting to form a joint working group comprising of Central and state Government nominees, who would sort out critical issues in order to implement the choice based credit system programme.
