Revised CBCS Framework Guidelines Arts Science Format

In view of several representations from student and staff unions, individual undergraduate teachers and university teachers the CBCS Common Framework for undergraduate courses in the affiliated colleges of Andhra Pradesh was very recently reviewed and finalized. A few changes were made keeping the representations, UGC model and international models in view. The finalized Common Framework for BA/B.Com and B.Sc. courses for all the three years of study (6 semesters) is given in the enclosed tables from 1 to 12 for providing a comprehensive view. At the request of the APSCHE, select universities are preparing syllabi for courses allotted to them. Now, they are requested to prepare syllabi within the Common Framework enclosed. The following are some of the guidelines that help in preparing the syllabi.

1. One of the main reforms kept in view in introducing CBCS is to enhance higher order skills, such as analytical skills, problem solving, reviewing and judging, and creativity in undergraduate students. To facilitate this, syllabus needs to be not heavy. Intra class and inter class student learning activity requires to be facilitated. Hence, teaching hours and consequently credits were finalized accordingly. The syllabus, therefore, may be mainly in accordance to the ‘teaching hours’.

2. Typical English and Second language components were restricted to first three semesters. Related Foundation Courses occupy their place in the fourth semester. Some of them will be taught by English and Second Language teachers, so that their workload doesn’t get reduced.

3. The quantum of total marks, total teaching hours and total credits can differ from semester to semester and course to course as the evaluation is through CGPA method.

4. There may be no formal internal examinations (Mid Sem) for foundation courses and the practical component of domain courses.

5. In case of others, in respect of formal internal examinations (Mid Sem) at the college level, the marks split between Formal Test and Co-curricular activities may be decided by the University concerned.

6. For Science Domain Subjects which had no lab practical component earlier (eg. Mathematics) there will be no practical component in the new model also.

7. In every course, the 6th (F) and 8th (H) papers of each of the domain specific subjects that fall in semesters V & VI may be an Elective. More than one Elective may be offered giving choice to students. The Electives may be of Domain (applied/specialization) or Inter-disciplinary in V Semester. Whereas the Elective of VI Semester may be Domain (applied/specialization) or Inter-disciplinary or General in nature. The number of Electives may be decided (along with the syllabus) by the University concerned keeping the feasibility of conduct of University examinations in view.

8. The Total Credits for a BA/B.Com course will be 142 and for B.Sc. Course,164.

9. It will be helpful if the universities send the requirements, in view of the introduction of CBCS, such as teaching and technical staff, training and facilities so as to enable APSCHE to forward the same to the authorities concerned.

10. The universities may forward suggestions for further improving the common framework in the coming years.
