The term 'credit' refers to the weightage given to a course, usually in terms of the number of instructional hours per week assigned to it. This explains why usually 'credit' is taken to mean 'credit hours'. The credits also determine the volume of course contents and delivery of programmes such as lectures, tutorials, practicals, assignments etc.
For the purpose of credit determination, instruction is divided into three components:-
Lectures (L) - Classroom lectures of one hour duration. Tutorials (T) - Special, elaborate instructions on specific topics (from Lectures) of one hour duration. Practicals (P) - Laboratory of field exercises in which the student has to do experiments or other practical work of two hour duration.
The UG (TDC) programme in a college affiliated the HPU will comprise the following categories of courses:
In each subject being taught in the college, major courses will be required to be passed by all students majoring in the concerned subject. In each subject there will be a minimum of fourteen (12) major courses. Each major course will be of four credit' hours for a UG degree in a subject (Major). A student majoring in the concerned subject will accumulate 12 x 4 = 48 credit hours( According to New regulations) .
A student will be required to pass a minimum of six minor courses in each of the two minor subjects chosen by the student to qualify for a UG degree in a subject (Major).
Each UG student will have to pass at least 12 minor courses being taught in the college. Provided that each student will have to take a minimum of 6 minor courses in each of his/ her minor subjects. Each minor course will be of 4 credit hours. Thus, a student will be able to accumulate at least 12 x 4 = 48 credits by passing minor courses.

>95% 5 marks
End-Semester Examination (ESE):
