Two years after Jamia Millia Islamia University shifted to the semester mode for its postgraduate programmes, it has decided to do the same for all its undergraduate programmes from the new academic session. As per university authorities, the decision was made two years back, but it took time to reformulate the syllabi of the UG courses. As per the scheme, the session will be divided into six semesters with 25% internal assessment.
Why the shift? "We had been working on redoing the syllabus of the UG courses across all nine faculties of Jamia. Besides, semester mode is not new to the varsity. We had implemented the semester system at the PG level in 2010. Also, we had been successfully running a semester system for M.Phil courses and in the faculty of engineering and technology for several years now," says Simi Malhotra, faculty, department of English and media co-ordinator. According to Malhotra, the university cannot run under two different modes of study. The move is important in order to synchronise and have a uniform university calendar. Also, under the semester mode, teaching is more intensive with increased teacher-student engagement. "Implementing semesters at all levels of courses is not difficult for Jamia as it doesn't have any affiliated colleges. All our departments run independently. They can devise their own syllabi, their own mode of evaluation etc, which allow them the flexibility needed in a semester system," she adds.
