Admission Procedure

The system of education prevalent in the annual scheme where an examination is conducted at the end of the year to test the conceptual clarity, comprehension and depth of knowledge in respect of the courses taught. Apart from a few advantages, it has been found to be suffering from several inadequacies which are highlighted below:

  • Any educational system should build a complete individual and in order to accomplish this objective, it is necessary to provide inputs and evaluate the student on a continuous basis so that qualities such as regularity, consistency, versatility are given adequate weightage.
  • It is also necessary to give feedback to student from time to time, to instill confidence and reinforce the learning that has taken place. Repetitive tests and their result when feedback can produce the required reinforcement which will go a long way in developing the personality of the students.
  • This is an era of quick results; the general levels of patience and perseverance have come down over a period of time. Annual system is prolonged so much so that students will be eagerly waiting to get over the whole process, without paying much attention to learning meaningfully.
  • A process of systematic internal assessment of continuous evaluation is necessary to build rapport between the teachers and taught. Very often it is the teacher in a semester system who understands the students better than others do through a final paper. The annual system does not provide this opportunity.
  • We need to learn today several courses to be able to get competency.
    Many of these courses come from various disciplines and streams; proficiency in one single discipline is no longer enough; cross disciplinary and interdisciplinary studies become the order of the day. Annual system does not provide an opportunity for offering a choice of a number of courses. Semester system which is accepted all over the world has addressed itself to the above deficiencies in the annual system.
  • Another significant change in the learning process required is the need to combine theoretical concepts with practical field based inputs such as field assignments, field reports, field visits, interactions with practitioners and so on.

Significant features of the Semester System:

  • It provides for study of several subjects with reduced scopes so that the courses provide the required professional competence and versatility which are the hallmark of good education.
  • It provides an opportunity to assess the regularity, consistency, commitment, participation of the student in the learning process which is very significant from a learning point of view.
  • It reduces the pressure on the student about performance as the performance evaluation is split over number of parameters and the risk is significantly reduced. For example, if a student suffers from minor illness during the final examination his results will not be significantly affected.
  • Feedback plays a significant role in the performance of a student. Timely feedback can help a student to rectify his deficiencies and improve upon before it is too late. Semester System provides such a feedback system through the mid semester examination as well as various tests and assignments.
  • When teachers have opportunity to evaluate students, it provides for an atmosphere of good rapport where teacher can systematically influence the behavior of student so that students can develop into mature individuals, which is the objective of any good system of education.
  • The onus of responsibility of semester is on the teachers. Teachers have increased significance in the system where objective criteria of assessment can significantly help the teacher to learn the concepts and theory the way he intended, so that he can correct his methods of teaching from time to time to suit the learning styles of the students. The whole system rests on immense faith in the ability of a teacher to provide an objective, impartial approach which can promote a healthy competition amongst the students to perform better.
