Universities in Uttar Pradesh to now follow a common minimum syllabus!

The Common Minimum Syllabus (CMS) will enable students to pursue multidisciplinary studies.

In an attempt to create a homogenous structure of higher education, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to implement a common minimum syllabus (CMS) across all state varsities. This new course will commence in BA, BSc and BCom programmes from the new academic session, read reports. According to an official release, the new structure will enable students to pursue multidisciplinary studies.

UP Universities to promote interdisciplinary growth

The common minimum syllabus pattern will open an avenue for the students to customise their own courses. For instance, students in the arts stream can opt for one subject, either from the science or commerce stream. Similarly, science students can study any subject of arts or commerce- such as history or economics alongside.

The new opted subject will be independent of the two major subjects of the chosen course. It may be noted that students have been awarded the liberty to change their main subject in the second or third year of graduation as well.

The fourth subject in every course will be a minor elective (one paper from a particular subject). This will be opted by a student from a different faculty. Besides, two other subjects- one vocational and one compulsory co-curricular subject, will round up the graduation syllabus. The state has announced that the skill development course (vocational subject) will be taught only for the first two years (four semesters) and will award three credits each.

UP universities to implement an annual 46 credit structure

With the new CMS, the credit system has also been altered. Now, there will be 6 co-curricular subjects, each carrying 2 credits. Students are required to complete these subjects in the first 3 years of the programme. Besides, the passing percentage of these subjects have been marked at a minimum of 40%.

While these grades will be mentioned on the mark sheet, they will not be part of the cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Students have to bank in 46 credits in one year, under the new structure. Each semester will stretch up to 15 weeks- where students need to secure minimum marks to qualify and minimum credits to obtain a degree.

The first thought that pops up in our mind when we think of Khadi is- comfortable clothing! One might pick this indigenous fabric for casual outfits but who could have thought Khadi can also be used as elaborate bridal wear. A stunning display of a Khadi wedding collection at this year's expo at IGP, organised by the Khadi Gramodyog Board, garnered a lot of attention and changed the way this fabric is perceived by many.
