OUTLINES OF CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM:

  1. Discipline Specific Core Course (DSC) The course designed for papers under this category aim to cover the basics that a student is expected to imbibe in that particular A course, which should compulsorily be studied by a candidate as a core requirement is termed as a Core course.
  2. Elective Course: Generally a course which can be chosen from a pool of courses and which may be very specific or specialized or advanced or supportive to the discipline/ subject of study or which provides an extended scope or which enables an exposure to some other discipline/subject/domain or nurtures the candidate’s proficiency/skill is called an Elective
    • Discipline Specific Elective (DSE) Course: An Elective course offered under the main discipline/subject of study is referred to as Discipline Specific
    • Generic Elective (GE) Course: An Elective course chosen from an unrelated discipline/subject, with an intention to seek exposure beyond discipline/s of choice is called a Generic Elective. The purpose of this category of courses is to offer the students the option to explore disciplines of interest beyond the choices they make in Core and Discipline Specific Elective
  3. Ability Enhancement Courses (AEC): The Ability Enhancement (AE) Courses may be of two kinds: Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC) and Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC).
    • Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC): These courses are based upon the content that leads knowledge enhancement, (1) Environmental Science and (2) MIL
    • Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC): These courses may be chosen from a pool of courses designed to provide value-based and/or skill-based knowledge and should contain both theory and laboratory/hands on training/field The prime purpose of these courses is to provide students life-skills in hands-on mode so as to increase their employability.
  1.

  1. Credit
  2. The term ‘credit’ refers to the weightage given to a course, usually in terms of the number of

    instructional hours per week assigned to it. This explains why usually ‘credit’ is taken to mean ‘credit hours’. The credits also determine the volume of course contents and delivery of Course such as lectures, tutorials, practical, assignments etc.

    1. For the purpose of credit determination, instruction is divided into three components:

    Lectures (L) – Classroom lectures of one-hour duration.

    Tutorials (T) – Special, elaborate instructions on specific topics (from Lectures) of one-hour duration.

    Practical (P) – Laboratory or field exercises in which the student has to do experiments or other practical work of two-hour duration.

    1. Each one of these components is considered as equal to one credit hour. One lecture (L) as well as one Tutorial (T) of one hour a week is considered as one credit, whereas one Practical (P) of two hours a week is considered as one The total weightage given to a course in terms of credits will be equal to L + P/T, where L is the number of one hour Lectures per week, T is the number of one hour Tutorials per week, and P is the number of two hours Practical per week. This can be written in symbols as: C = L + P/T Where, C is the credit weightage for a particular course.
