Panjab University to roll out choice based credit system

Panjab university has decided to implement choice based credit system (CBCS) from the next academic session. The CBCS will be introduced across all departments of the university.

The university has worked out on modalities and guidelines to implement choice based credit system (CBCS). The new system allows students to take a course of their choice based on their interest. Students can select courses from the given core, elective, minor or soft skill options. Thus, the system aims at focusing on student-centric education by enabling them to choose interdisciplinary course.

 Panjab varsity to roll out CBCS

A member of the committee, who was speaking to Indian Express said "The choice-based credit system adds a new dimension to academics for the students. Students can take up courses from across disciplines and develop on their credits at the same time. For instance, a student can now choose to take up a course in economics while studying physics, or take a course in social sciences while pursuing environmental science. Keeping this in mind, a new curriculum has been drafted for all the university departments to benefit the students."

As of now, the CBCS will be introduced across all departments of the Punjab University.

Implementing the same in all of its affiliated colleges has not been decided. Modalities and guidelines about introducing CBCS in its affiliated colleges will be discussed at Panjab University College Development Council meeting, which will be conducted in the month of June.
