Calcutta University has revised the syllabi of 30 subjects in the arts, science and commerce streams for the next academic session, beginning April 2003.
University officers said on Sunday that successful candidates of next year’s Higher Secondary examinations will have to study the new syllabi in their under-graduate colleges affiliated to the university.
Shyamal Kumar Sarkar, secretary of the under-graduate council of the university, said copies of the revised syllabi will be available from the university sales counter on College Street from the last week of this month. “We are now printing the new syllabi, which will be available to the college authorities and students by the end of this month,” he added.
The syllabi of such a large number of subjects has been revised after about 20 years. A new honours course has been introduced in B.Com. One will be on accountancy and finance and the other on marketing.
