Students’ body condemns choice-based credit system

February 28, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:33 am IST - NEW DELHI:

The All India Students’ Association held a public hearing on the “Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and Central Universities Act” in front of the Arts Faculty in Delhi University North Campus on Friday. It stated that the CBCS, which will soon be introduced, was another attempt to make “guinea pigs for ill-motivated Tughlaqi experiments” of its students.

“After the forced impositions of ‘semester system’ and Four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP), CBCS is being imposed. This is again an FYUP-type khichdi of silly and shallow foundation, core and elective papers, which will dilute academic quality and depth of honours courses and make the graduation degree worthless.

“States like Tamil Nadu, which have already adopted CBCS, are already facing the harmful consequences for students and teachers,” said Sunny Kumar of the AISA.

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association was also in attendance and spoke about what the new schemes could mean for the university’s teachers and students.
