THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Academic Council of Kerala University on Thursday decided not to grant recognition to the distance education M.Sc chemistry programme of Madurai Kamaraj University (MKU).

A press note issued here said the council decided to grant one more chance to the 2006-admission candidates of the first year B.Sc nursing programme who failed to pass the examinations.

The Board of Studies would decide on the changes to be made in the regulations as per the directives of the Nursing Council. It was decided to restructure the part time B.Tech course from the 2010 admissions onwards.

The papers to be studied by the 2008-09 admission students would be decided by the Board of Studies concerned.

Guidelines

The issue of fixing guidelines for the pass mark in the regulations for the B.Pharm examinations would also be considered by the Board of Studies concerned.

The council rejected a demand to include the name of the college in the B.Tech mark list. However, the method of converting the grade point average to the percentage of marks scored would be detailed in the mark list.

The council decided to recognise the regular M.Sc mathematics degree given by Madras University through Madras Christian College.

The council decided to recognise the distance education certificate course of Annamalai University in Library and Information Science.

The council also ratified the scheme and syllabus of the first and second semester of the choice-based credit and semester B.Com programme (2010 admission), the release said.

The council passed a resolution presented by M. Shahul Hameed demanding that the university publish on its web site the scheme and syllabus of all degree courses that would be restructured from the 2010 admissions onwards.

The university would organise training programmes in the restructured degree courses for all college teachers, beginning December.

This would be held in three phases, Syndicate member K.L. Vivekanandan said.
