Pvt PG students to appear for exam annually
THE BOARDS of Studies in various subjects of the Barkatullah University (BU) have been asked to put up revised syllabi for each subject so that the changes could be initiated during the next academic session.
The directive came from BU Vice-Chancellor Prof R S Sirohi during a meeting of the chairpersons of the Boards of Studies held on Saturday.
The chairpersons were asked to come up with the modified syllabi as early as possible so that they could be finalised well in time. Also, the V-C asked them to incorporate such aspects that would be useful to the students and relevant in the present context.
Chairpersons of the boards were also asked to provide suggestions regarding the changes needed in various ordinances of the varsity. Some ordinances have become irrelevant while others need minor or major changes.
The V-C asked the chairpersons to come up with suggestions in this regard at the earliest so that the amended ordinances could be put before the Universities’ Coordination Committee for approval.
The boards have also been asked to come out with revised norms for affiliations to private colleges of subjects concerned. They have been asked to give a status report regarding affiliations in various subjects.
The scheme of exams, adaptation of syllabi and other details regarding the implementation of semester system were discussed in detail during the meeting.
Semester system is to be introduced in previous year (part I) of postgraduate classes during the 2007-08 academic session.
PRIVATE STUDENTS TO GIVE EXAMS ANNUALLY:
Previous year postgraduate students would appear for exams in the annual pattern and not in semester system like regular students.
This was decided after several deliberations during a meeting of the Boards of Studies on Saturday. Those present opined that it would be difficult to get private students to appear for exams in the semester system.

THE TIMETABLE for the 2007 annual examination of the Barkatullah University was finalised on Saturday during a meeting of principals of the affiliated colleges.
