OU to change pattern in CBCS system

Lot of students failed in the subjects they chose from other faculties, says V-C
Under the system, a student has to choose two interdisciplinary courses from other departments

The Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) introduced for the first time in the Osmania University (OU) last year will see several changes this year with the officials realising that inter-disciplinary courses have led to the failure of several students.

The university has now decided to restrict the options of choosing the inter-disciplinary papers within the faculty instead of opening all the streams for all the candidates.

From now onwards, the candidates of Arts, Social Sciences, Computers or Biological Sciences streams will have to opt for the option papers within their faculty only.

“Lot of students have failed in the subjects they chose from other faculties. Some social science students who opted for computer science failed as they could not comprehend the subject,” said the OU Vice-Chancellor, S. Satyanarayana.

Though their intentions were good they realised that subject was totally new to them. Similar experiences were seen in science subjects as well.

Prof. Satyanarayana agreed that they should have studied this aspect. “Students complain that the syllabus of inter-disciplinary courses was tough.”

Under the CBCS programme a PG student has to choose two interdisciplinary courses one each in third and fourth semesters offered by other departments.


The concerned department has to design and teach the two courses that carry a weightage of eight credits. Figures revealed that lot of students chose subjects from the Arts stream.

“They did not face any problem,” said the Vice-Chancellor.

Capsule courses

Maximum students chose capsule courses offered by Departments of Communication and Journalism, English, Psychology, Political Science, Public Administration, Computer Science, Biochemistry, Physics, Social Work, Statistics and Environmental Science while response to languages was poor.

Maximum response

Psychology got the maximum response with 209 students choosing the course, while English Literature got 148, Communication and Journalism - 124, Public Administration- 104, Political Science-119, Computer Science-90, Physics- 90, Environmental Science-74 and Social Work was chosen by 67 students in the third semester. Similar response was seen in the fourth semester as well.

100 courses

Around hundred courses were offered to the stduents in different streams by the university.
