Admission to the postgraduate programmes under the Choice-based Credit Semester System (CCSS) in the Calicut University is in the doldrums, alleged members of the Association of Calicut University Teachers (ACT).
Addressing a press conference here on Friday, ACT office-bearers said that since the new batch to be admitted to the PG classes has completed their degree courses under the CCSS, there is a need to change the present PG admission procedures. K Fathima Zuhara, President, ACT, said that as the first batch has already completed UG courses under CCSS, the students who have completed their courses in grading system could not be admitted to PG courses. ACT office-bearers further said that even though the UG examination results have been published, grade sheet is yet to be distributed to the students. With the university not coming up with any alternative method for the smooth conduct of the PG admission process, ACT has also brought their own proposal which includes criteria and procedures for the process. Association Secretary K M Jayaram, M V Narayanan and K N Ganesh were also present at the press meet.
