0


After initially approving 13 colleges to offer Engineering lessons in five regional languages, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has given approval to more colleges to impart education in mother tongue from the academic session 2021-22.

“As of now, a total of 20 colleges in six languages from ten states have been approved by the Council to offer Engineering education in regional languages,” says Anil Sahasrabudhe, chairman, AICTE.

“Among all the 20 colleges that have got AICTE nod, most colleges have opted for Hindi. This is followed by Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and Bengali,” adds Sahasrabudhe. Other than these, Malayalam, Gujarati, Assamese, Odia and Punjabi languages have also been approved by the AICTE for Engineering courses.

The move to offer technical education in mother tongue is aimed to instil confidence among students who have studied from schools located in remote areas and students with weak English.

New challenges

Engineering colleges that have started admission for BTech programme in regional languages from this academic year are not getting encouraging response. For instance, a college which has started admission for BTech in Computer Science in Hindi has few takers. The college with an intake capacity of 120 seats has got just 32 applicants. According to source at the college, “Students are quite apprehensive about future career prospect after finishing BTech in Computer Science in a regional language.”

Erode Sengunthar Engineering College which offers BTech in Mechanical Engineering in Tamil is also facing shortage of applicants. “So far just 24 admissions have been confirmed. To fill the rest of seats another round of counselling is being conducted,” says V Venkatachalam, principal.

On lukewarm response to Engineering education in mother tongue, Venkatachalam reasons that lack of awareness is the major challenge. “Most of the students are not aware of the availability of Engineering education in regional language that is why they are applying for admission. An awareness campaign is needed to promote Engineering education. Gradually they will get to know and come forward for admission,” he adds.

Erode Sengunthar Engineering College shortlists candidates for counselling based on their academic performance in class XII or equivalent.

CBSE News: Another BIG Update on Term 1 Exam MCQ Pattern, 50% MCQs will be Competency-based in CBSE Class 10 and 12 Nov Boards

0


mediawire_image_0CBSE Circular Acad – 88/2021 on Competency-based MCQs weightage

Based on a circular (given above), CBSE provided a critical update via video call that is going to make the task for school teachers for final practice of students a bit difficult. More than 50% paper will come on competency-based MCQs in Term 1 Board Exam starting 30 November 2021. Although the CBSE Sample Paper provided on 2 September 2021 provides the paper pattern, CBSE clarified that many teachers and students are getting confused about the nature of MCQs asked in it and practising the wrong type of MCQs.

The video call was like a webinar arranged with school teachers exclusively for various subjects, explaining what to expect and how the practice Questions should be prepared for these final few weeks.

We have created a subject-wise important points based analysis of those video calls, to help all students and teachers understand the new update. Do read till the end so that you don’t miss any important details.

SCIENCE

1. Competency-based MCQs are not the complex case-based MCQs with a diagram and case-study paragraph in it. It can be a diagram, table, statement-combination or labelling based MCQ, which already comprises 50% of CBSE Class 10 Science sample paper that was provided.

2. Students should seriously consider final sample paper practice of November Boards from this provided resource of Class 10 and Class 12 books. Emphasis on Time Management of 1.5 hour paper was given and useful tips and how to structure the paper time for each section was explained. All of this is made available in the above books of respective subjects provided.

Congratulations!

3. The below example was given on how Stand Alone MCQs will be used for assessment of competencies in the upcoming Term 1 paper.

mediawire_image_0Stand Alone MCQs based on a diagram to make the HOTS easier to use for students as discussed in CBSE Science Webinar hosted on 5 October 2021

4. A Stand Alone MCQ can also be competency-based in nature if it has a diagram as a diagnostic tool to provide visual representation of a technical process to the students that will help them use their analytical and critical skills (HOTS) readily.

5. This CBE (competency based education) applies to Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects of CBSE Class 12 Term 1 Boards as well. For more information on CBE, CBSE suggested we visit cbseacademic.nic.in/cbe.

MATHEMATICS

1. In Mathematics, all the similar parameters used to develop Term 1 MCQs, including simple, complex and case study-based questions were covered.

2. As shown in the question below, the questions must be asked in a way that the students are using their low order skills (remember and understanding) along with high order skills (applying, analysing, evaluating and creating).

mediawire_image_0A/ R MCQs like shown above were explained to encourage use of low and high order skills

3. These examples were compared to those in the CBSE Term 1 Sample Papers and we found that there are actually mixed type MCQs that include process-driven and diagram MCQs, to test high order skills.

4. CBSE experts suggested that understanding the nature of competency-based exams (analytical, inference based or critical evaluation) is important for teachers to form questions for Term 1 boards practice.

5. For these types of competency MCQs, this book for Class 10 and Class 12 was suggested to get clarity on final practice of Term 1 papers that has these new types of expected competency questions.

6. CBSE’s own competency based Question Bank PDF was suggested too (available on the official website) but it has no solutions, so the books given above (in collaboration with Educart) are suggested to be most suitable at this point.

ENGLISH

1. With the question given below (as an example for the writing section), it was clarified that no MCQs will be asked based on a standard format for letters, stories, articles, etc.

2. Instead, the MCQs will demand the students to use their reading, understanding, analytical and decision making skills as well. See an example below.

mediawire_image_0MCQs based on the Writing section to encourage the use of competencies as discussed in CBSE English Webinar

3. Assertion/Reason MCQs can be asked in the Literature and Reading section of Class 10 and 12. Students need to practice such MCQs as well to be fully prepared.

4. Expect more than 50% of questions of such types in English of CBSE Class 10 and 12.

5. These questions test similar high order skills of the students like reading, analysing and reasoning as in Science and Social Science but with a non-technical approach. They also test low order skills in students (remembering and understanding).

In absence of good study material especially for English, this Class 10 English and Class 12 English Core Book was suggested as a good resource for such MCQ based papers final Term 1 practice.

We hope the article was able to convey all the important revelations in the CBSE webinars. The video calls concluded with a hope that the use of competency based assessment is the need of the hour as part of our NEP and teachers need to use the tools and resource material provided diligently to provide the correct pedagogy.

Do refer to provided links in the article of book resources of CBSE to benefit in these final few weeks of practice.

The 25th meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) to discuss the COVID-19 situation in the national capital was held on September 29. Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, who chaired the meeting, had announced that a decision regarding reopening of schools for classes 6 to 8 will be taken after the festival season.
The director for education had said at the meeting, “No reported instance of any increased local transmission of COVID-19 in Delhi due to reopening of schools for classes 9 to 12. There has been steady increase in attendance of students (approximately 80 per cent) physically attending schools.”

The official had said that approximately 95 per cent teachers and other staff of schools have been vaccinated, and Covid-appropriate behaviour (CAB) is being strictly followed in all schools.

“The joint committee has recommended that schools may be reopened for classes 6 to 8 from October 1 and attendance to be voluntary and with parental consent only. Only 50 per cent of students to be called to schools,” the director education had said.

“Blended mode of teaching learning process (online and offline) should be continued. Vaccination of teachers and other staff in schools should be prioritised,” the official had said.

Schools may resume transport facility for students with 50 per cent seating capacity and following CAB, the director education had said in the meeting.

Experts present at the September 29 meeting had also opined that the next the two to three months are very critical in view of festivals like Navratra, Dusshera and Diwali.

“VK Paul, member, Niti Aayog, suggested a call on reopening of schools may be taken after the festival season as by that time there would be higher coverage of vaccination as well,” according to the minutes of the DDMA meeting.

“He stated that the next two to three months are very critical as festivals like Navratra, Dusshera and Diwali are approaching. During these times people tend to move and congregate in markets for shopping. Community celebration of festivals also takes place,” the meeting minutes stated

AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria had also observed that it would be safer to open schools after Diwali as there would be a number of holidays in the coming festival months and as such there would be no impact on studies of students.

“Balram Bhargava, DG (director general), ICMR, suggested that there should be 100 per cent vaccination of all teachers and staff associated with the functioning of schools with zero tolerance,” the meeting minutes said.

However, Krishna Vatsa, member, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) was of the view that school for classes 6 to 8 should be opened from October 1 and for others it may be opened after Diwali.

Schools in the national capital were ordered to shut last year in March ahead of a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus.

While several states started partial reopening of schools in October last year, the Delhi government allowed physical classes only for classes 9-12 in January this year, which were again suspended following the exponential rise in COVID-19 cases during the aggressive second wave.

Following a marked improvement in the COVID-19 situation in the national capital, the Delhi government had announced reopening of schools for classes 9 to 12, colleges and coaching institutions from September 1.

The Delhi government had clarified that no student would be forced to attend physical classes and the consent of parents would be mandatory.

Allowing only 50 per cent students per classroom, mandatory thermal screening, staggered lunch breaks, alternate seating arrangement and avoiding routine guest visits were among the guidelines announced by the DDMA for reopening of schools and colleges from September 1.

10th MCQ Term 1 Boards: 20 Days Master-Stroke To Score Maximum in Maths, Science, Social Science

0


mediawire_image_0

When it comes to board exams, then every student is getting anxious. Only a few days are left for the exams, and everyone wants to conquer their exam. Let’s suppose you have only 20 days left starting from now on, then how will you utilize these 20 days to score maximum. So, if you are the one who is also waiting for such a master-stroke, then you have landed at the apt page. By going through further, you can easily analyse that how you can conquer subjects like Maths, Science, and Social Science, which seems to be difficult at first glance.

So, let’s get started!!

Strategy to conquer in Maths Exam

1. Focus on high weightage chapters

Congratulations!

You have successfully cast your vote

The weightage of every chapter is released by the CBSE board, and you must adhere to that weightage. By thoroughly analyzing the weightage, you can easily see that which chapter has how much weightage. And based upon the weightage, you should focus on the chapters that have higher weightage as compared to the others.

For Maths, the overall marks distribution accounts for a total of 50 marks, but you need to attempt for 40 marks. And the section in which you will get to choose the question will be mentioned in the question paper. You need to put more focus on Coordinate geometry, Trigonometry, Real Numbers, and Triangles chapter in the first place. These chapters will carry a major portion of 32 marks for your final exam, and moreover, they even have chances of making mistakes.

While preparing for these chapters, make sure you devote 13 to 14/20 days for these chapters. After doing these chapters, you can move to Linear equations, Polynomials, Area Related to Circle, and Probability. They can be easily covered in the rest 7 days that you are left with. Among these chapters, linear equations can take a time of two days; otherwise rest other chapters can be done in 2-3 hours of duration.

2. Practice selected NCERT questions, an MCQ question bank, and PYQs

As of now, only a few days are left for the board exams so you can’t start anything from scratch. If you think that you will solve every single question of NCERT, then you are on the wrong track. This is the crucial time in which you need to practice only a limited number of questions.

Particularly for Maths, select 3-4 questions from the end of the exercise and 2-3 questions from the beginning of the exercise. As the last questions of the exercise are a bit difficult as compared to the initial ones. So, if you are able to solve the questions that you selected, then you are 99% through with the preparation.

Besides that, you can’t leave the question banks and previous year questions for scoring well. This will not only make you familiar with the exam pattern, but the previous year 1-2 mark question can even be there in the MCQ format. So, you should never leave them. Moreover, now there is no time that you can leave them for a later stage. As soon as you complete a chapter, do its MCQ questions at that time only.

Note: Never miss out on big questions by spending humungous time on solving short questions only, as this can decrease your overall score!

Like-wise, we may work out an in-depth exam plan for Social Science Subject too.

Here’s the recommended link for CBSE MCQs Sample Papers Class 10 for Term 1 Board Exams 2021-22: https://bit.ly/311ssea

Strategy to conquer in Science Exam

1. Dive Smart Into Syllabus

There is no reduction in chapters- “Chemical Reactions and Equations”, “Acids, Bases, And Salts”. In the chapter “Metal and Non-metal”, the part (occurrence of metals- Page no.48) is removed. In the chapter “Life Processes”, there is no reduction. In the chapter “Light”, Mirrors and Lenses Formula Derivations are removed. In the chapter “Human Eye and Colourful World”, the Human Eye section is removed.

2. Notes for last-minute revisions

In the last few days, you are not going to make the notes from scratch. So, you must be having good revision notes that must be detailed enough that after reading them, you don’t have any need for going through NCERT. These notes will help you revise your formulas and other important concepts in a single place. But, don’t start making notes these days, as this will create chaos. If you don’t have your handwritten notes, then you can even get them with some good books that will make your task easier.

3. Do NCERT in-text activities and questions

While studying through the NCERT of Science, students generally leave in-text activities that are present while reading the chapter in those blue boxes. At this time, you are going to face the MCQ-based exam, so you can’t even risk that, and you should properly go through them for scoring high. The questions from those activities are even present in the sample papers, so you can’t leave them at any cost.

4. Do NCERT back exercise questions

To score well in your science exam, you need to do every single back question of NCERT that is present in the book. You can’t leave any of those questions as they are very important from an examination point of view.

5. Practice objective questions of exemplar and previous year questions

You also get the Science exemplar books from where you can do the MCQ-based questions. Even if you don’t have an exemplar, then also you can easily download it online and practice MCQ-based questions from it. You can even get the straightforward question from that exemplar in your exam. Moreover, you can even get the solutions to these exemplars online.

You should also see 1-2 marks questions of the previous 10 years because they have a high chance to come to the MCQ format this year.

6. Go through the official CBSE sample paper and practice sample papers

CBSE had already released their official sample paper with solutions. So, you can’t miss upon that sample paper, and you need to practice that well. It will give you a true idea of the pattern and the difficulty level of the questions that you will face on the day of the exam.

Besides that, try to solve as many sample papers as they come your way. You can even get the Oswaal Sample Papers that are dedicatedly designed for this purpose. When you practice a great pool of questions from these sample papers, then you will be well-versed with the paper pattern and your preparation.

7. Convert notes to one-pager

When you are studying from your notes during these last 20 days, then try to assimilate those notes in the form of a one-pager while revising. When you can convert those notes in the form of a one-pager, then you can easily see how much you know and how handy this single page can come to you when you want to revise a chapter. This will help you gain confidence in your preparation level.

Bottom Line

These are some of the most phenomenal strategies that can help you excel in your term 1 board exams. Besides this master-stroke, you need to be confident and self-motivated for your preparation.

Practice is the ultimate key that can give you a true jest of the board exam. You can even grab the Oswaal Sample papers to give a new edge to your preparation. All the sample papers are exclusively designed to help you through your board exams. Moreover, you will encounter all the typologies in this book that you can face on the day of the exam.

wb school reopen: West Bengal schools, colleges to reopen from Nov 16: Mamata

0


KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said schools and colleges in the state will reopen from November 16, after a gap of around 20 months, and directed the chief secretary to facilitate the process. A school education department official said the government will issue a notification for resuming classroom teaching from classes nine to 12.

The decision about reopening schools for other classes will be made later depending on the emergent Covid-19 situation, the official said.

Plans are being chalked out for resuming physical classes in colleges, a source in the state secretariat said.

Congratulations!

“Reopen schools and colleges from November 16. Before that, you have to carry out cleaning there and other measures,” Banerjee told Chief Secretary H K Dwivedi at an administrative review meeting at Uttar Kanya, the branch secretariat of the state government in Siliguri in north Bengal.

The chief minister had said earlier in the day that educational institutions will reopen from November 15.

“Earlier, I had said educational institutions will reopen on November 15. But since that is a holiday (tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda’s birth anniversary), schools will now reopen on November 16,” she said.

Schools and colleges in the state have been closed since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March last year.

“As per the preliminary plans, students of junior classes till Class 8 will continue to have online classes and they do not need to be present at schools physically. Plans are being made for reopening colleges,” a highly-placed source in the state secretariat told PTI.

Meanwhile, doctors and educationists welcomed the decision to reopen educational institutions.

“Children have been eagerly waiting for the schools to reopen. This was needed for a long time. But we must also not forget about the precautionary measures needed to be taken for the children attending physical classes,”

renowned gastroenterologist Dr Abhijit Chowdhury said.

Senior physician Dr Syamasis Bandyopadhyay said, “Online classes are like child’s play. I thank the CM for taking such a positive decision. Children have been eagerly waiting for schools and colleges to reopen. Now that the decision has been made, I believe that it will help them a lot.”

Educationists said institutes should be reopened in a phased manner.

“Students have suffered a lot due to closure of educational institution campuses for over one-and-a-half years. The decision by the CM is welcome. But since the Covid situation still hasn’t gone and there has been a rise in infection in the state, we need to tread with caution. Schools should be opened in a phased manner,” educationist Nrisingha Prasad Bhaduri said.

The headmistress of Manimala High School at Asansol in Paschim Bardhaman district Ranjana Roy Choudhury said students of higher and lower classes should be allowed to attend classes on different days to avoid crowding.

The headmaster of Kolkata’s Jadavpur Vidyapith, Parimal Bhattacharya, said the school administration has initiated steps to sanitise the premises before the puja vacation.

“We are planning to start higher classes in groups and make seating arrangements accordingly. We will go by the notification of the school education department,” he added.

Lauding the PM Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission launched by the prime minister in Varanasi on Monday, the chief minister said it was a step towards a revamped healthcare infrastructure of the new India.
“The inauguration of the medical colleges by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the real homage to all those who lost their lives because of lack of medical facilities since independence.

“Besides, it will also extend an assurance that there would no longer be any death of innocent or citizens because of lack of treatment,” Adityanath said in Siddharthnagar.

Invoking Ramayan, he said that like “Ahilya’s wait for Lord Ram got over, the entire region’s wait for health facilities has ended today”.

“From 1947 to 2016, only 12 medical colleges were built in the government sector in Uttar Pradesh.

“Today 30 medical colleges are opening in Uttar Pradesh under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna and the state government has also taken this work forward in some districts with its own resources,” he said.

Speaking on the occasion, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya termed the Health Infrastructure Mission as a big gift for the nation through which every district will get Rs 90 crore to 100 crore for the health infrastructure development.

He said the inauguration of nine medical colleges was a historical step that will ensure the best treatment for the masses as well as an opportunity for the youth to become doctors.

These medical colleges will not only serve the present generation but also the future generations, he said, adding the reforms in the health sector depict the changes being made in the country.

Giving a big boost to the health infrastructure, the prime minister launched the Rs. 64,000-crore PM Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission from his parliamentary constituency Varanasi and inaugurated nine medical colleges from Siddharthnagar.

In Siddharthnagar, Modi elaborated on the importance his government has been attaching to developing the health sector.

“When the BJP government was formed in the country in 2014, a mahayagya was started to improve the health facilities of the country.

“Many schemes were started under this, but I will always regret that the earlier government here did not support us. It brought politics into development work. The plans of the Centre were not allowed to proceed in Uttar Pradesh,” he said referring to the previous Samajwadi Party government.

The Purvanchal region, whose image was tarnished by the previous governments and which suffered due to encephalitis deaths, is going to give a new light of health to eastern India, he said.

He said that due to the construction of these nine medical colleges, new employment opportunities have been created for more than 5,000 doctors and paramedical staff. Along with this, a new path of medical education has also opened for hundreds of youths every year.

Modi also saw the photo exhibition and the model of Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College Siddharthnagar and visited the photo exhibition, ‘Life scene of Buddha and excavated site Kapilvastu – a glimpse’.

“In Uttar Pradesh, till 2017 there were only 1900 seats in the Government Medical College, whereas, in the double-engine government, more than 1,900 new seats have been increased in the last four years,” he said.

Modi said, “We will produce more doctors in the next 10 to 12 years than the number of doctors we got in 70 years after independence”.

The prime minister said ‘One Nation One Exam’ has been implemented to relieve the youth from the worry of different entrance exams across the country.

This has also saved cost and also reduced the hassle of multiple exams, he said, while also noting that now the option of medical studies has been given in many Indian languages including Hindi.

The prime minister also referred to the country administering 100 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses and said Uttar Pradesh has had a big contribution in this.

0


KOLKATA: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said schools and colleges in the state will reopen from November 16, after a gap of around 20 months, and directed the chief secretary to facilitate the process.

A school education department official said the government will issue a notification for resuming classroom teaching from classes nine to 12.

The decision about reopening schools for other classes will be made later depending on the emergent Covid-19 situation, the official said.
Plans are being chalked out for resuming physical classes in colleges, a source in the state secretariat said.

“Reopen schools and colleges from November 16. Before that, you have to carry out cleaning there and other measures,” Banerjee told Chief Secretary H K Dwivedi at an administrative review meeting at Uttar Kanya, the branch secretariat of the state government in Siliguri in north Bengal.

The chief minister had said earlier in the day that educational institutions will reopen from November 15.

“Earlier, I had said educational institutions will reopen on November 15. But since that is a holiday (tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda’s birth anniversary), schools will now reopen on November 16,” she said.

Schools and colleges in the state have been closed since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March last year.

“As per the preliminary plans, students of junior classes till Class 8 will continue to have online classes and they do not need to be present at schools physically. Plans are being made for reopening colleges,” a highly-placed source in the state secretariat told PTI.

Meanwhile, doctors and educationists welcomed the decision to reopen educational institutions.

“Children have been eagerly waiting for the schools to reopen. This was needed for a long time. But we must also not forget about the precautionary measures needed to be taken for the children attending physical classes,” renowned gastroenterologist Dr Abhijit Chowdhury said.

Senior physician Dr Syamasis Bandyopadhyay said, “Online classes are like child’s play. I thank the CM for taking such a positive decision. Children have been eagerly waiting for schools and colleges to reopen. Now that the decision has been made, I believe that it will help them a lot.”

Educationists said institutes should be reopened in a phased manner.

“Students have suffered a lot due to closure of educational institution campuses for over one-and-a-half years. The decision by the CM is welcome. But since the Covid situation still hasn’t gone and there has been a rise in infection in the state, we need to tread with caution. Schools should be opened in a phased manner,” educationist Nrisingha Prasad Bhaduri said.

The headmistress of Manimala High School at Asansol in Paschim Bardhaman district Ranjana Roy Choudhury said students of higher and lower classes should be allowed to attend classes on different days to avoid crowding.

The headmaster of Kolkata’s Jadavpur Vidyapith, Parimal Bhattacharya, said the school administration has initiated steps to sanitise the premises before the puja vacation.

“We are planning to start higher classes in groups and make seating arrangements accordingly. We will go by the notification of the school education department,” he added.

Siuli Sarkar, the principal of Lady Brabourne College in Kolkata, said, “We are ready to open our campus for offline classes where students will sit keeping a distance and in small batches. We will decide on the modalities once the government order is issued.”

Will FYUP reduce the importance of PG programmes

0


With the Union Education Ministry wanting to start the implementation of a 4-year undergraduate course (FYUP) in all the universities of the country, especially in the central universities, the focus, for all practical purposes, may have shifted to the undergraduate programmes. Considering the fact that FYUP would comprise 4 years of college education with flexible entry and exit options, would the postgraduate programmes be undermined and be given the short shrift? Yogesh Singh, vice-chancellor, University of Delhi (DU), is of the opinion that postgraduate programmes would only be strengthened with the implementation of FYUP across universities.

“FYUP will supplement and add value to PG programmes since students who choose to complete four years of undergraduate education would be more inclined towards research and higher education. They would have the option to be eligible for one year PG programme (like in the European countries) while those who opt for three years of undergraduate education will get an honour’s degree and be eligible for the 2-year PG programme. What we are looking at is total 5 years of UG and PG education which can either be pursued in the new 4+1 format or the existing 3+2 format, as part of a more student-centric approach to higher education.”


Freedom of choice

He adds further, “The aim is to break the rigidity of existing curriculums and give students the option to exit after three years or follow a research track in the final year of their FYUP so as to pursue one year of master’s programme. Not every student aspires to be a researcher or scientist, but the FYUP will make the transition to the PG programme more seamless if students choose to go in for master’s and later PhD programmes.”

In keeping with Delhi University’s plans of implementing the FYUP from 2022-23 academic year onwards, Singh informs that the DU Academic Council has decided the framework for FYUP in terms of semesters and credits while the Board of Studies will decide the course offerings. “Additionally, students of the UG and PG programmes will have the choice to undertake courses of neighbouring colleges/universities or opt for SWAYAM’s MOOCs, Coursera, edX etc depending on the quality of content,” says the former vice-chancellor of Delhi Technological University (DTU), where he recalls a large basket of course offerings that enabled Engineering students the option to pursue a minor in Economics, Design, AI or Biotechnology depending on their interests.

“In the coming years, PG programmes would become more research-intensive and pave the way for quality PhDs in our country. We still have around 2-3 years to implement the revamped PG curriculum more passionately, as the focus is now more on the FYUPs where enrolments are slated to begin in the new academic year,” Singh says.

Knowledge integration

The FYUP and one-year PG programme will help integrate knowledge and give students the flexibility to choose myriad courses, says Lingaraja Gandhi, vice-chancellor Bengaluru City University, that has recently rolled out the Multidisciplinary 4-year Programme and an Integrated Master’s programme from the current 2021-22 academic session under the new FYUP scheme. “The quality of the PG programme will be enhanced under the new initiative as FYUP will provide students the opportunity to earn credits through the UGC’s Academic Bank of Credits, and engage in internships, projects and research dissertation in line with NEP 2020.

Besides flexible entry and exit options, they can acquire 40% of the total credits through online courses that can be pursued anytime and anywhere. Such options will ensure students do not dropout of the education system as they have the freedom to choose and change streams not just in their own institutions but acquire credits from other institutions as well.”

He adds further that FYUP and master’s programmes will be integrated more than ever before as skill component and ability enhancement of the students are being integrated into the syllabi right from the first year (of the UG programme) itself. “Preparation for master’s programmes begins from the first year of undergraduate education where the focus is on core learning, allied learning (from sister disciplines) and open learning which in NEP parlance is called programme discipline, discipline elective and open electives respectively. These will ensure that students who choose to pursue PG education are equipped with critical and analytical thinking skills and are able to enjoy the autonomy of lifelong and continuous learning.”
