  • CBCS system permits students to,
    1. learn at their own speed.
    2. Students can choose their electives from a big range of elective courses that are being offered by the University
    3. In this system, the student can adapt the inter-disciplinary approach in selecting the electives.
    4. As in the University, there will be experts in different subjects, students will have the chance of selecting different subjects and approaching the experts in the concerned field.
    If a student is not able to complete the programme within the period prescribed or selected can extend the course time by two years.
    If the student completes all the subjects within the period prescribed there will not be any backlogs or there will nor be any question of extension in any university where CBCS rules are implemented.

  • CBCS is a new concept allowing the aspirants to choose Elective and Core subjects to be chosen as per his desire and evaluation of each paper would be graded as A+, A, B+, B, C, Pass and fail indicating the the scores as 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 or less than4 respectively.
    In some way, it is good in the sense that it promotes the interest in some of the subjects prescribed in the syllabus and one will put his entire effort to do the best in his chosen subjects.
    This offers huge benifit in the change of the university at the later stage enabling him to transfer his credit rating in the newly chosen university. This system offers option to change the VTU university to Mumbai University with the entire system of credit.
    For completion of course already chosen, the aspirants have the options to clear the backlogs within two years. The entire system is self - stimulating in terms of their ongoing studies.
    The only disadvantage associated with this pattern is the overindulgence of the professors of the concerned subjects due to flexibility of timings of the different students.

  • CBCS (Choice-Based Credit System) is different than the earlier system of backlogs and arrears in the sense that now students are not only free to choose the courses as per their choice but also can study as per their own pace and have to complete the course in the successive semester if they could not do it in the current semester. The students have to choose from three categories of the courses which are - Core courses, Elective Course and Foundation courses. If they can take up more courses then there is a scope of earning more credits also. CBCS system has more emphasis on assignments, group discussions, internal exams etc which is in fact beneficial to the students only.

    UGC has stipulated grading scale for CBCS system and in each semester credits will be given. A 10 point grading system is implemented in which 0 means absent or fail while 10 means outstanding. Everything is counted towards the grade even the number of hours a student attends the class. The new system is flexible in many ways and gives a number of choices and options to the student. If a student falls sick in one semester he can cover it in the next one.

    So, it is clear that if a student completes his selected courses in stipulated time he will not have any backlog and arrears to his account which he had to cover later as per the old system.

    Knowledge is power.
