Delhi University plans to revise its PG courses to fit into Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). Currently the semester system is in place, under which students are evaluated on the basis of marks. Under CBCS, marks will be converted into grades.

The standing committee for academic affairs has recently approved revision of courses like MCom and MBA. The committee also plans to revise UG courses such as BSc courses in maths, statistics and physics.

The decision making process was delayed, giving little time to carry implement a new system and see its flaws. “Ideally, we should have decided on this matter last year, so that the new syllabus was implemented this year. That way, the faculties would have a year to understand the system and make relevant changes before the first CBCS PG batch.” a member said.

The students who have taken admission this year in PG courses might have to study a revised course. Though various PG courses will be taken to AC for approval, whether it will be implemented this year or not remains undecided.

“In case the courses pass through the AC meetings seamlessly, there might be a chance that the new syllabus will be taught this year itself. The classes for postgraduate students have not started yet. But the approvals need to be completed before the end of August. ” a member of the committee told TOI.
