The student in this system has considerable freedom in choosing courses and so making his/her own personalized programme/ bouquet in cafeteria mode keeping in mind necessary requirements of a major course. Except for the compulsory and core courses of the subject of his/her major, he/she is free to choose courses of his/her choice. The programme is considered completed when the student cumulates the requisite number ofsuccessful credits(passed)i.e. at least 132 creditsfor an undergraduate degree.
For Admission :
A pass in the Senior Secondary (+2) Examination (Academic Stream) conducted by H.P. Board of School Education (or in the Shasthri, pass in Prak Shastri from Sanskrit College affiliated to the HPU) or an examination accepted as equivalent thereto by the various bodies of the H.P. University.

(ii) Provided that the candidates who have passed the qualifying examination with science stream shall be given preference in admission toB.Com. Programme.
An academic year comprising 180 working days. in the least is divided into two semesters, each semester having 90/6=15 teaching/working weeks. Considering that each teaching day has 5 teaching/working hours, a teaching week would have 5x6=30 working/teaching hours and each semester will have 30x15=450 teaching hours available for each student.
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 'credit' istaken to mean 'credit hours'. The credits also determine the volume of course contents and delivery of programme such as lectures, tutorials, practical, assignments etc.
For the purpose of credit determination, instruction is divided into three components:-
Lectures(L)-Classroomlectures of one hour duration.
Tutorials (T)-Special, elaborate instructions on specific topics (from Lectures) of one hour duration.
Practicals (P)-Laboratory or field exercises in which the student has to do experiments or other practical work of two hour duration.
Each one of these components is considered as equal to one credit. One Lecture (I) as well as one Tutorial (T) of one hour a week is considered as one credit, whereas one Practical (P) of two hours a week considered as one credit.The total weightage given to a course in teams of credits will be equal to I+T+P. where Listhe number of one hour lecturers per week, T isthe number of one our Tutorials per week Pisthe number of two hour Practicals per week.This can be written in symbols as:
Where, C is the credit weightage for a particular course.
The total minimum credits required for an under graduate degree programe is one hundred and thirty two (132).
