PU set to introduce choice based credit system

CHANDIGARH: From the academic session 2015-16, Panjab University (PU) will introduce the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and Credit Framework for Skill Development (CFSD). CBCS allows a student to choose a paper from other faculty – allowing more scope for multi-disciplinary studies.

The proposal, which comes after a recommendation by University Grants Commission (UGC) to institutions of higher education, will be tabled in the meeting of the PU syndicate on Sunday, March 8.
