NEW DELHI: The University Grants Commission has greenlit the implementation of the Academic Bank of Credits, a key provision in National Education Policy 2020 for higher education. The ABC system, says UGC, will help students design a path of multidisciplinary education that suits them. It allows students to choose courses rather than simply accept all that comes with a rigid degree program. Currently, 18 higher educational institutions have registered to implement the ABC system. Universities and autonomous colleges which have earned at least an “A” grade from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) or are in the top 100 positions on the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) are eligible. Raghavendra P. Tiwari, Vice-Chancellor of the Central University of Punjab, and a former member of UGC shed light on various aspects of the ABC system and online learning.
