The University Grants Commission (UGC) has sought information from varsities about whether they have implemented the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and revised their curriculum according to their specifications or not.
It has asked varsities to provide details by April 18. The commission had introduced the CBCS in 2015 to allow ‘seamless mobility’ across higher education institutions and transfer of credit earned by students.
“UGC had developed guidelines on CBCS and also the detailed syllabi in consultation with various stakeholders in as many as 109 undergraduate courses as a template which gives a broad framework of uniformity as well as in-built flexibility. All the universities were requested to adopt the CBCS and also revise the curriculum,” a statement for the universities read.
“The HRD Ministry has desired to create a database regarding the implementation of CBCS and curriculum revision in universities across the country. Hence, you are requested to furnish the details by April 18,” it added.
