In a bid to maintain equity and excellence in higher education, Universities in Odisha will have uniform syllabus from 2019-20 academic session, informed Vice-Chairperson of State Higher Education Council, Prof Ashok Das.
“The uniform syllabus is ready. We have sought feedback from universities and other stakeholders by April 17 to incorporate their suggestions, if any, before finalising it,” Das said.
The decision to introduce uniform curriculum to help students from the State to compete with other students at both national and international level, was taken at the meeting convened by the State Higher Education Council.
On introduction of common entrance test (CET) for Post-Graduate students, Das said no decision has yet been taken if it will be implemented from this academic session or from 2020-21 next session.
“Those universities who wish to go ahead with the uniform test from this academic session may do so. However, its implementation in the State is still in initial stages,” Prof Das added.
