The Academic Council of Mumbai University came to the decision on Tuesday, June 7, that the students taking admission this year will be taught a new curriculum. MU’s earlier announcement regarding bringing a change in the syllabus of all the faculties had caused a lot of confusion to the candidates.
Among the many decisions taken by University of Mumbai’s Academic Council are-
- To do away with internal exams, which were held by colleges for the Bachelor of Arts, Commerce and Science courses. The internal exam carrying 25 marks was held by colleges individually. However, no changes were made in the self-financed courses.
- From this academic year, it would be compulsory for final year students to do live projects – internships, on-job training and industry orientation.
- From this year onwards, the university would be taking in its hands the whole examination portal. It will now hold examinations for all the semesters. Earlier, the responsibility of holding the exams from first to fourth semester was of the colleges, while the university helmed only the exams for the last two semesters. The main aim in bringing about this change is to bring uniformity in exam patterns.
- As part of the choice-based credit system, students have the choice of taking up the projects either in fifth or sixth semester for which, they will be given credits.
Mumbai University is all set to transform its educational curriculum completely, and we sincerely hope it benefits its students of various courses.
