ORDER
Choice Based Credit Semester System (CCSS) was implemented for UG Programmes under
School of Distance Education (SDE) and Private mode of this University with effect from 2011-12
admission vide paper read as first above,
Vide paper read
second above, the syllabi of UG Programmes under School of Distance
Education(SDE)/ Private mode was equalized with that of Regular Programmes under Choice Based
Credit Semester System (UG).
Vide paper read third above, the scheme and syllabus of Bachelor of Multimedia
Communication Programme (BMMC) was implemented under Choice Based Credit Semester
System (UG) in School of Distance Education (SDE) and Private mode with effect from 2011-12
admission.
Vide paper read
fourth above, the
Examination- Distance Education has pointed out the
incompatibility found in the mark pattern of BMMC Syllabus and that the syllabus was structured in
mark pattern which is incompatible and hardly applicable to the CCSS system of evaluation
and makes the tabulation process almost impossible. Much trouble in tabulation is apparent from
lllrd sem onwards as there are three components in certain papers - theory carrying 60 marks;
practicals 20 marks; and internal 20 marks. ln this pattem, it is hardly possible to grade the marks of
practicals separately even while BMMC is a practical oriented programme.
Vide paper read fifth above, the Chairman Board of Studies in Multimedia has given clarification
that the marks of the practical evaluation and theory (out of 60 and 20 respectively) be merged to
a single grade point. This means specific grade for the practical evaluation will not be reflected in
the final grade. Therefore, in papers where there is a practical component, the marks (out of 20) will
be given for tabulation and this marks will be added to marks obtained in theory and the total will be
converted to grades.
Vide paper read sixth above, the Chairman Board of Studies in Multimedia has forwarded the
scheme and syllabus of BMMC Programme in School of Distance Education(SDE) incorporating the
above clarifications.
Vide paper read seventh above, Registrar has approved the clarifications offered by the
Chairman.
Sanction has therefore been accorded to implement the scheme and syllabus of Bachelor of
Multimedia Communication Programme (BMMC) after effecting corrections under Choice Based
Credit Semester System (UG) in School of Distance Education(SDE)with effect from 2011-12
admission.
Orders are issued accordingly.
The UO read third stands modified to this extent.
The syllabus is uploaded in the website.
