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.
