DU Admission 2022: The Delhi University officials have said that from this year onwards, every student enrolling in the University will have to “mandatorily” register in the Academic Bank of Credit (ABC) portal that contains the information of credits earned by individual students.
The ABC is a virtual storehouse for records of academic credits secure by a student.
Addressing a webinar, Professor K Ratnabali, Dean of Academic Activities and Projects, informed about the benefits of ABC, saying this provides credit mobility which can help a student to redeem credit that he or she has earned in different universities to get a certificate diploma and degree accordingly.
“Every student who is going to enroll from academic session 2022-23 has to mandatorily register into the Academic Bank of Credit portal. Once you create an account in the academic portal, it is like having a bank account. Whenever you pass a course, four credits will be deposited into your credit account,” Ratnabali said.
“Similarly, if you are doing any other additional courses where credit mobility is possible. You can take advantage of it. If you look at the ABC portal there are many universities where there is credit. You can redeem those credits and thereafter award a certificate diploma and degree accordingly,” Ratnabali added.
“While making the UCGF we have incorporated several features of NEP which are so fundamental and relevant for higher education in the university,” the professor added.
The UGCF includes two features of the NEP — the multidisciplinary approach and the multiple entries and exit scheme (MEES).
