While IGNOU has been one of the foremost to introduce credit grounded academic programmes with a wider choice of courses, with the CBCS, it's now introducing semester system and point grounded evaluation system under a 10 point grading system. The programme can be completed in a minimal period of three times( six semesters) or in a maximum period of six times. A credit is original to 30 hours of study time.
