As per the latest implementation of Credit Based Choice System (CBCS) in Delhi University (DU), the students will have to study 26 papers in honors and 22 papers in program courses.
Credit Based Choice System (CBCS), which has been implemented from the current session in Delhi University, will divide the students' courses into three parts. These include core, elective and ability enhancement courses. The students will have to study 26 papers in honors courses and 22 papers in program courses. In the core courses, the students will have to study the subjects taken up by them. In the elective, they have been given the freedom to take up subjects of their choice from the array of subjects offered by the colleges.
The elective courses have been divided into three sections. These include courses associated with their discipline, dissertation/ project and generic elective. There are two types of ability enhancement courses. They include Ability Enhancement Compulsory Course (AECC) and Skill Enhancement Course (SEC). AECC includes environmental science and English/ Hindi/ MIL (Modern Indian Languages). These are mandatory for every discipline.
SEC includes training/ skill-based courses. Honors students will have to study at least two courses under this whereas a program student will have to study at least four papers under it. Delhi University has kept 87 graduate courses and 18 supplementary courses under CBCS. The students are quite confused regarding this.
