CBCS

The academic programs at GHRU, Amravati follow the flexible Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) with Outcome Based Approach. Choice based credit system (CBCS), provides a learning platform wherein the student or knowledge seeker has the flexibility to choose their course from a list of elective, core and soft skill courses. This is a student-centric approach to learning or acquiring higher education. The semester system accelerates the teaching-learning process and enables vertical and horizontal mobility in learning. The credit based semester system provides flexibility in designing curriculum and assigning credits based on the course content and hours of teaching. The choice based credit system provides a ‘cafeteria’ type approach in which the students can take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace, undergo additional courses and acquire more than the required credits, and adopt an interdisciplinary approach to learning.

Choice Based Credit System not only opens pathways for learning opportunities but also manifest learning goals and objectives. CBCS follows a credit system which is attached to course components offered to students. A credit system for higher education measures various parameters like student performance, outcomes, entrepreneurship skills, contact hours, innovation and creativity talents, etc.

Our approach to creating an exceptional student experience and delivering the highest level of teaching and learning is quite simple; “Being a Student Centric University, We put our students at the heart of everything we do.

Features of CBCS System:

  • Credits can be transferred if the student changes his/her branch of study.
  • CBCS is a step towards moving away from numerical marking to grading.
  • Grading minimizes the stigma of "fail".

The credit based grading system is considered desirable because it facilitates student mobility across institutions within the country and across other countries. Potential employers can thus assess performance of students, judicially.
