"Committees have been formed. They are working on the curriculum and it will be ready in two-three months before the start of the academic session 2022-23," Singh told PTI.
The vice-chancellor said the students, who will enter DU through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) route, will study the new curriculum.
The UGCF includes two features of the NEP — the multidisciplinary approach and the multiple entry and exit scheme (MEES). Under MEES, students can exit at the end of an academic year with a degree.
According to the draft, students will have to earn a total of 176 credits at the end of the fourth year of their undergraduate degree. They need to earn a minimum of 50 per cent credits in a discipline to get the degree with a major in that discipline.
The draft University Grants Commission (UGC) framework states that students will have to earn 160 to 176 credits for a four-year degree with honours/research. What will be the criteria for a student from another university willing to switch to DU? "Our framework makes it mandatory that a student will need 176 credits for a degree. A student will have to earn extra credits. We will award a degree only with 176 credits," he said.
