3) Regulations and Syllabus of Gauhati University for TDC Semester System
UG-CBCS Gauhati University has decided to introduce CBCS in its affiliated colleges in ‘Under Graduate Level’ from 2019. REGULATIONS OF THE UNDER GRADUATE CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM (UGCBCS): 1. THE CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM (CBCS) The Choice Based Credit System is the logical next step in a credit based semester system becoming more learner-centric. A CBCS offers the student a diversity of course to choose from the autonomy to decide on the place and time of learning. 2. UNDER GRADUATE CBCS (UGCBCS) PROGRAMMES The undergraduate degree programme in the CBCS will have courses spread across six-semesters. A typical semester will comprise a minimum of 15 to 18 weeks academic work that will translate into 90 actual teaching days. Two consecutive (one odd and one even) semesters will make up an academic year. An UG course shall be of Six Semesters, covering three Calender Year (Academic Session June to May). The duration of the Odd Semesters (First, Third and Fifth) shall be ‘June to November’, and that of Even Semester (Second, Fourth and Sixth) shall be ‘ December to May’. The dates and duration mentioned in the academic calendar concerned will be in consonance with the above schedule as far as practicable. Each student must take admission in three consecutive Academic Session starting with the first semester. Students who do not enroll in the Second Academic Session will not be eligible to take admission in the Third Academic Session. The minimum time requirement to acquire an undergraduate degree will be three years. The Maximum time allowed to complete the programme will be six years.
Structure of Courses and credits of the UGCBCS programmes:
2.1 The term undergraduate degree programme denotes programmes like B.A., B.Sc., B.Com., B.Voc., BCA,BBA and all other such Programmes where the requirement for award of a degree is the successful progression of the student through six semesters of academic work. 2.2 The academic work in each semester will require the student to engage with chosen courses, the content of which will be described in detail in the syllabi. Every course will have defined learning objectives and may be designed to comprise lectures, tutorials, laboratory work, field work, project work or any other activity that addresses the learning objectives of the course.
2.3 Each course will have credits, assigned on the basis of course related activities, which a student will earn through satisfactory fulfillment of the academic requirement of the course.
2.4 An undergraduate degree program with Honours in a discipline will have a course credit requirement of 148 credits while an undergraduate degree program without Honours will require a student to earn 132 course credits. Students in a Honours program can opt to earn additional credits by undertaking additional Elective course subject to the condition that the total number of course credits does not exceed 160 credits. For a student in a Regular program, this credit ceiling will be 140 credits. The credits earned beyond the mandatory program requirement will not be taken into consideration in computing of the student’s grade but will be recorded in the grade sheet.
Note: Wherever the university requires that an applicant for a particular M.A./M.Sc./Technical/ Professional course should have studied a specific discipline at the undergraduate level, then obtaining 24 credits in the concerned discipline at the undergraduate level may be deemed sufficient to satisfy such a requirement for admission to the M.A./M.Sc./Technical/Professional course.
2.5 The medium of instruction and examination will be in English and/ or Assamese, except in language courses. NATURE AND NOMENCLATURE OF COURSES: In line with the UGC’s guidelines, the courses are categorized as Core course, Elective courses or Ability Enhancement courses 3.1 Core Course : A Core course is a course that has to be compulsorily studied.

A student enrolled in an undergraduate degree program with Honours will have to earn 24 course credits from Discipline Specific Elective courses. For a student enrolled in a non-Honours undergraduate degree program in science, the course credit requirement from Discipline Specified Elective course will be 36 credits.
