CBSC Examination

Education plays a significant role in the building of a nation. The majority of educational institutions are engaged in introducing a semester system to match with international educational patterns. The majority of Indian higher education institutions have been following a percentage or marks-based evaluation system. This obstructs the flexibility for the students to study the subjects of their choice. Students should be given the choice of selecting disciplinary, intra-disciplinary and skill-based courses. This is possible only in the Choice-based – Credit-System (CBCS). Therefore, it has become necessary to introduce CBCS System in India.  UGC has formulated several guidelines concerning courses and evaluation systems which the educational institutions have to follow.
