Lahore: University of Gujrat Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Nizamuddin told council members that the sub-committee recommended that 26 selected colleges should be affiliated with their nearest universities where such programmes were already under way. These universities would exercise academic control of the BS (Honours) Programme in their affiliated colleges and provide academic, training and curriculum resources to their affiliated colleges. The universities would be responsible for enriching the curriculum on the basis of research and new knowledge. These universities would conduct annual examinations of students admitted to the four-year BS (Honours) Programme after the conclusion of two semesters for four years.
The examinations conducted by the four-year degree programme faculty would carry 40 per cent weightage, while the annual examinations conducted by the universities after two semesters would carry 60 per cent weightage.
