The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 has brought revolutionary changes to the education system of India. One key change is the introduction of the CBCS.
The Choice Based Credit System completely changes the traditional teaching-learning system in India. It allows learners the flexibility to choose their course from a list of ‘Elective’, ‘Core’ and ‘Soft Skill’ courses.
In the 2015-16 session, the University Grant Commission (UGC) moved on from the traditional marks and percentage system and introduced the ‘Choice Based Credit System’ in Delhi University. The talks on the CBCS system went on for quite a long time created confusion among the colleges as to whether the syllabus, timetables, and assessment procedures should be prepared as per the requirements of the CBCS or should they have continued with the previous marking system. But the DU has been able to implement the CBCS system with relative ease, while the students are finally coming to terms with the changes introduced by the UGC. Let’s get into the details of this system.
CBCS moves away from numerical marking to grading semester-wise with two semesters in a year where students’ performances are evaluated and grading is done subject-wise. The CBCS works in compliance with other grading systems of institutes, all over the world. Different evaluation methods are followed, based on the suitability of the course approved by various legislative bodies.
UGC recommends Letter Grades and Point Grade Systems to be applied Letter Grades are based on a student’s marks or percentage from his/her course Grade Point Systems are where marks are converted into grades based upon a fixed period.
Core courses are there every semester and students have to compulsorily study the core or the main subject to meet the requirement of the programme of that particular discipline.
All the major higher education institutions across the world are implementing a system of credits. For instance, we have the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) in Europe’s universities, the ‘National Qualifications Framework’ in Australia. There is the Pan-Canadian Protocol on the Transferability of University Credits. In the UK, we have the Credit Accumulation and Transfer System (CATS). Even the systems operating in the US, Japan, etc. are based on the credit system.
