With an aim of ensuring issueless mobility of students across different higher education institutions within the country and across the borders, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has come up with a set of guidelines for adoption of uniform Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) across all the universities in 19 UG courses.
The UGC has put all the guidelines for uniform CBCS in public domain and the apex higher education regulatory body has requested all the stakeholders, including students, to give their feedback so that they can be put up before the expert committee for consideration for finalizing syllabus.
Prof MS Parmar, DAVV's Public Relation Officer said, "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."
The official communication from the UGC to the universities said, "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 guidelines ensure that the credits earned by students can be transferred and would be of great value if they seek migration from one institution to the other.
