UGC Make Semester and Grading System Mandatory for All Universities in India
The university Grants Commission has officially ordered that every university in India should follow semester and grading system from the academic session 2015-16.
The step has been taken by the commission in the best interest of the students and believed will provide wider options for students to learn and ensure their seamless mobility across institutions.
There are about 400 universities all across the country. And most of them have their own curriculum like the numerical marking system or conduct the exam annually.
The UGC has asked the universities to introduce the choice-based credit system (CBCS) and credit framework for skill development (CFSD) from 2015-16. Under CBCS, the students will be able to pursue three types of courses - foundation, elective and core. In the new system, the students must pursue core subjects every semester and are free to pick electives from a pool of subjects unrelated to their disciplines.
