Objectives of Choice Based Credit System

Kongunadu Arts and Science College became Autonomous in 2004 and continues to be affiliated to Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. It has been given freedom to frame its own courses of studies and adopt innovative methods of teaching and evaluation. In keeping with its tradition of promoting innovation and growth, the college had introduced the choice based credit system (CBCS) since 2005-2006 with the following objectives in view:

  • To provide broad based education.
  • To provide students with greater flexibility.
  • To enable students to choose courses at basic/advanced levels.
  • To enable highly motivated students to gain extra credits.

The evaluation method of CBCS with grading provides a much better picture of the academic personality of the students than the existing one with marks indicated in percentages. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and Grade point Average (GPA) are indicators of the academic performance of the students. The students can have horizontal mobility in studying certificate and diploma courses for their further empowerment with learning flexibility.
