The proposed system encourages students to come in close contact with teachers. For promotion of teacher-student contact, each student is assigned to an Adviser and the student is free to discuss with his adviser all academic matters. Students are also encouraged to meet with other teachers any time for help and guidance in academic matters.
The BUGS of the concerned department who will advise each student about the courses to be taken by a student will normally appoint one adviser of a group of student. In each term the adviser will discuss with the student his academic programme and help him decide the number and the nature of courses for which he can register. However, it is the student’s responsibility to keep contacts with his/her adviser who will review and eventually approve the student’s specific plan of study and check on subsequent progress.
For a student of second and subsequent terms, the number and nature of courses for which he can register will be decided on the basis of his academic performance during the previous term(s). The adviser will advise the student to register for the courses during the next term within the framework of the guidelines in respect of minimum/ maximum credit hour limits, etc. which are discussed later. He may also permit a student to drop one or more courses based on his academic performance.
