The CBCS provides an opportunity for the students to choose courses from the prescribed courses comprising core, elective and skill based courses. The courses are to be evaluated by following the grading system, which is considered to be better than the conventional marking system. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce uniform grading system. This will benefit the students to move across institutions both within India and across countries. In order to bring the uniformity in evaluation system and computation of the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) based on student’s performance in examinations, the UGC has formulated the guidelines which are also annexed herewith.

Outlines of Choice Based Credit System:

Core Course: 4 discipline specific papers each for regular courses and 2 papers each for English and Hindi/MIL in B.A./B.Com program. The courses designed for papers under this category aim to cover the basics that a student is expected to imbibe in that particular discipline. A course, which should compulsorily be studied by a candidate as a core requirement is termed as a Core course.

Elective Course: Generally a course which can be chosen from a pool of courses and which may be very specific or specialized or advanced or supportive to the discipline/ subject of study or which provides an extended scope or which enables an exposure to some other discipline/subject/domain or nurtures the candidate’s proficiency/skill is called an Elective Course.

Discipline Specific Elective (DSE) Course (2 each for B.A./B.Com. regular courses): Two elective courses offered under the main discipline/subject of study is referred to as Discipline Specific Elective.

Dissertation/Project: An elective course designed to acquire special/advanced knowledge, such as supplement study/support study to a project work, and a candidate studies such a course on his own with an advisory support by a teacher/faculty member is called dissertation/project.

Generic Elective (GE) Course (each for B.A./B.Com. regular courses): An elective course chosen from an unrelated discipline/subject, with an intention to seek exposure beyond discipline/s of choice is called a Generic Elective. A core course offered in a discipline/subject may be treated as an elective by other discipline/subject and vice versa and such electives may also be referred to as Generic Elective.

Ability Enhancement Courses (AEC): The Ability Enhancement (AE) Courses are of two kinds: Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC) and Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC).

Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC): “AECC” courses are the courses based upon the content that leads to Knowledge enhancement. These are mandatory for all disciplines and are of following kinds: (i) Environmental Science and (ii) English/Hindi/MIL Communication.

Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC) (4 for regular courses): SEC courses are value-based and/or skill-based and are aimed at providing hands-on-training, competencies, skills, etc. with a purpose to increase employability.

Practical/Tutorials (One each with every core and discipline/generic specific elective paper).

CBCS has been implemented under RUSA from the academic session 2013-14, which offers wide ranging choice for the students to opt for courses on their aptitude and career goal. The curriculum offered in the semester pattern spread over 6 semesters (3 Years) includes number of courses to accomplish a holistic learning experience for the students.

Semester system: Semester means six monthly study course or either of the two six monthly academic terms with following typical look involving teaching for 15 weeks excluding duration of Minor Test, Assignments, End Semester Examinations and Semester Breaks.

Tutorial Session: It consists of Participatory/Problem Solving/Deskwork/Brief Seminar/Group Discussion or any other such methods that makes learners absorb and assimilate more effectively.
