bulletExamination System for B Sc (Brief Introduction)

Unitized structure of B Sc Course:

B. Sc. course structure of the university periodically undergo revision as per the statutes of the Mumbai University. It is mandatory for the university to revise the subject syllabi every three years so as to keep abreast with modern developments. 

Unitized structure was introduced by university since 1977 when 10 + 2 + 3 pattern was adopted by Government of Maharashtra. 

Under this scheme B Sc course of University of Mumbai is a three year integrated degree course and is offered in a unitized form. 

bulletEach unit is of 100 marks. 
bulletFor Science subjects as well as applied component subjects, 100 marks are split into 60 marks equivalent of theory and 40 marks of practical examination; each forming a head of passing
bulletOne Unit of Science subject in terms of formal work corresponds to 3 lecture periods and 3 hrs of practical classes at F Y & S Y level. 
bulletAt T Y the time distribution is little different i.e. one unit corresponds to 4 lectures and 3 hrs of practical classes.

Each year science student has to offer total 6 units of science subjects and 1 units of Foundation Course (F Y & S Y) or Applied Component (T Y).  Thus every student will give examination of 700 marks in FY and S Y and 800 marks in T Y.

How these units are distributed into various subjects?

Unit system theoretically offers lot of flexibility. For example student can offer at S Y level 3 subjects  or 2 subjects thus offering 2 units each of 3 subjects or 3 units each of 2 subjects. However due to practical constraints in every college it boils to down to certain fixed combinations, which is determined by student number (available from year to year), the sanctioned staff strength (as governed by Maharashtra University Act),  and infrastructure.
