  1. 1. Choice Based Credit System AMUCT Academic Workshop April 18, 2015
  2. 2. Choice Based System • All the subjects are to have uniform marks • Each Subject should have a uniform number of topics • Syllabi would be non-step-ladder (Independent chapters) • Each topic will be dealt with twice or thrice (repetition) • A student need be present only for a predetermined number of topics
  3. 3. Students Choice • Student can select the subjects among various disciplines • One subject may be commerce, another one science and a third one Humanities • In a particular teaching hour, the classes may be held for all the three subjects and he chooses which class to attend • The subjects he missed, he attends the next time it is covered
  4. 4. UGC’s Choice Based Credit System • Introduces Basic Degree and Honours Degree Simultaneously • Core Subjects (Compulsory) • Discipline Specific Elective (Including Project Work/Dissertation)-DSE • Generic Elective Course (Inter-disciplinary) • Ability Enhancing Compulsory Course • Skill Enhancement Course

  10. 10. Benefits • Students have a choice between Hons., Course and Basic Course-Honours having a more inter- disciplinary approach • Opportunity for Skill Development • Standardised number of subjects and CGPA • Up-to-date Curriculum • Students will get an opportunity to use their discretion at various stages • It may make the students independent rather than doting on the lecturer as in primary school
  11. 11. Problem Area 1: Curriculum Content • In order to accommodate Electives, syllabus content is made heavy and many core papers that are studied now are omitted e.g B.Com.Hons (a) Cost Accounting has the four semester syllabus prescribed for one semester (b) Financial Accounting is studied in all the six semesters now enabling students to get jobs to work in Accounting Verticles in Karnataka. It is being reduced to 2 Semester Core Papers (c) Important employment areas like Banking and Insurance are totally omitted
  12. 12. Problem Area 2: Time Table and Class Matrix • Allowing core papers of one stream as Generic Elective for other streams of study will create many combinations of subjects at the institutional level • There will be clash of classes: On Monday I hour, he may have to attend core paper class and a Generic Paper. This is a problem for Choice Based System universally which can be tackled by changing the approach to curriculum
  13. 13. Problem Area 3: Choice between Hons. And Basic • Students will be indecisive between Hons. And Basic Courses. A small difference in approach regarding Generic Elective may not make a substantial difference in perception • There should be a more significant difference between the two different courses
  14. 14. Suggestions • The Hons. Course can be for a four year duration whereas Basic would be for a three year course • If accepted, Hons. Course would be designed as a terminal course and Basic Degree as the continuing course • We can accommodate more core papers in Hons. Course • On the completion of each year of Hons. Course, a Diploma can be awarded as Diploma in Business Studies for Commerce after I Year and Advanced Diploma in Business Studies after second year and Professional Diploma in Business Studies after third year. This will be helpful to the students terminating their studies on account of employment or setting up business unit
  15. 15. Suggestions…contd • The syllabus should be 20 topics with each topic repeated for teaching at least three times so that a students who missed a subject due to clash of class can attend the next time the topic is dealt with • It should be enough that a student attends 15 topics in each Paper due to clash of classes and holidays • The topics should not have a step-ladder arrangement. They should be independent topics • Efforts should be made to create books like “Readings in Micro-Economics” with independent topics
  16. 16. Third Slide on Suggestions • There should be allowable deviation of 20% in the curriculum regarding core papers at the University level • Employment generating subjects should be given a more weightage in the curriculum
  17. 17. THANK YOU
