Mumbai University to continue with 60:40 credit pattern

Published On: 26 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 26 Jul 2012

The academic council of Mumbai University (MU) has decided to stick to the 60:40 rule in CBCS (credit-based choice system) though another 3 options were proposed to replace it.

The university will continue to assign 40 marks for internal papers with the same break-up as earlier. Under the new modifications made in June this year, written test will carry 20 marks (in the academic year 2011-12, two test of 10 marks each were held), 10 marks will be given for project or assignment, five for classroom participation and 5 for responsible behavior, making a total of 40 marks in each semester.

However, the decision was against the suggestions proposed by the teaching community, BUCTU (Bombay College Teachers Union) has given threats of mass protest.

Yesterday, July 25, 2012, the council considered the 75:25 rule for external and internal exams. Another suggestion was to allot 30 marks for a written test in first semester, 30 marks to project or assignment in the second semester and 10 marks for responsible behavior and classroom participation. However, the council held that if the CBCS pattern is modified the entire purpose of continuous assessment over all the semesters will be defeated. The suggested format could not justify the CBCS system.

Teachers were not satisfied with the university’s decision and expressed that if the same system was to be followed what was the point in reviewing it after 1 year. As per them, students do not get time to take part in extracurricular activities. The 75:25 rule is in compliance with the UGC (University Grants Commission) policies.

In the mean time, the Mumbai University has for the first time partnered with a cola company to establish a community college in a remote area. The aim is to provide training to rural students as per the corporate needs and also to raise the employability rate. Nearly 250 students of the first batch will be given training and employment thereby ensuring 100% placement.
