- Choice Based Credit System
Choice Based Credit System coupled with Grading, an innovative method of curriculum and evaluation
This is a modern system introduced in Higher Educational Institutions to keep the curriculum relevant to the demands in Job Market. Students are offered with a choice of a variety of Job-oriented courses, Elective Courses and courses improving soft-skills. They can choose any course of their interest and need during the period of study and earn extra credits and certificates in addition to the regular hard core (compulsory) subjects. In this College, Choice Based Credit System is followed in semester pattern.
Under this system every subject is fixed with certain credit points, based on the, quantum of subject matter, complexity of the content and the contact hours allotted. This is done after a thorough analysis of the content of each subject by the Members of Board of Studies.
