Pune: Savitribai Phule Pune University, has emerged as the second-highest state university in the registration of students for the Academic Bank of Credits (ABC) system. The university has enrolled 4,45,752 students so far, as it gears up to implement the National Education Policy 2020.
Under this policy, students will be assigned a credit score or credit bank, and specific marks will be credited to their academic accounts for each course they undertake. To facilitate this process, the central government has introduced an online platform that universities across India must register on. Currently, 1,146 educational institutions have registered on this platform, including 318 state universities.
Dr. Mahesh Kakade, Director of Examination and Evaluation Board of Savitribai Phule Pune University, emphasized the importance of registering for the ABC system, stating that the new educational policy will be based on a merit system. While the university has instructed affiliated colleges to register for ABC from October 2022, Dr. Kakade appealed to all remaining students to register as soon as possible.
To register for the ABC system, students can visit abc.gov.in. The system is also required for filling next year’s applications, making it an urgent matter for students to open their education accounts.
