Re: Choice Based Credit System Osmania University

The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), provides a learning platform wherein the student or knowledge seeker has the flexibility to choose their course from a list of elective, core and soft skill courses. This is a student-centric approach to learning or acquiring higher education.

Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)

This CBCS system is an initiative of University Grants Commission (UGC); which enhances and promotes educational liberalization of existing conventional higher education models.


Each semester will consist of 15-16 weeks of academic work equivalent to 90 actual teaching days.

The odd semester may be scheduled from June to November and even semester from
December to May .

The CBCS provides choice for students to select from the prescribed courses (core, elective or minor or soft skill courses).


A unit by which the course work is measured. It determines the number of hours of instructions required per week. One credit is equivalent to one hour of teaching (lecture or tutorial) or two hours of practical work/field work per week.

Types of Courses

I. Core Course: A course, which should compulsorily be studied by a candidate as a core requirement is termed as a Core course.

2. Elective Course: Generally a course which can be chosen from a pool of courses and which may be very specific or specialized or advanced or supportive to the discipline/ subject of study or which provides an extended scope or
which enables an exposure to some other discipline/subject/domain or nurtures the candidate's proficiency/skill is called an Elective Course.
