Choice-Based Credit-Semester System with Grading

University of Calicut has implemented choice-based credit-semester system with grading for all undergraduate courses from the academic year 2009-2010. The syllabi of all degree courses have been revised to fit into the new system.

The University also implemented direct grading system from last academic year. Each Course will be graded, in a five point scale and the student should get an overall “C” grade for a pass.

Seven Point Scale for Certification

Grade Grade Range
A+ 3.80 to 4.00
A 3.50 to 3.79
B+ 3.00 to 3.49
B 2.50 to 2.99
C+ 2.00 to 2.49
C 1.50 to 1.99
D+ 0.50 to 1.49

The title “papers” are now replaced by “Courses”. Three-year undergraduate programme would have six semesters and 30 to 35 courses. Each semester will cover five or six courses.

A student has to acquire 120 credits for successful completion of a Bachelor's degree. Each course will offer up to four credits. The University will offer extra credit for extracurricular and co-curricular activities. But it will not be counted for the mandatory 120 credits. The new system will have four kinds of courses: common courses, core courses, complementary courses and open courses. There will be 10 common courses for B.A., B.Sc., B.Com., B.B.A., and B.C.A. programmes. They can be chosen by the respective faculty from a pool of 12 courses offered by the University. One course in Environmental Studies will be mandatory for all students. Then the choice is limited to nine out of 11 courses in the common module. The 10 common courses will offer 38 out of 120 credits.

The common courses and the complementary courses (formerly the subsidiary subjects) will be done in the first four semesters. The last two semesters will be exclusively for core courses. Two of the core courses in the final year will be open courses. Students should choose one of the open courses (elective) from their own department and the other from any other department in the college.
