New Grading System for Enhanced Learning
The new move will provide will benefit students.
The University Grants Commission has recently made a mandatory move which will benefit lakhs of students across the country. The new move will provide students with great opportunities of study and growth.
The regulatory body has introduced a choice-based credit system (CBCS) and credit framework for skill development. At present, some universities still follow the numerical based marking system for courses at different levels. With the introduction of this grading system from 2015–16, universities will have to follow semester-based examinations.
In CBCS, students will have to undergo three levels for courses – foundation, elective and core. Students must pursue core subjects every semester and can pick electives from subjects not related to their disciplines. This will enhance the knowledge of students at each level because it will expose them to different subjects.
