Credit

The term "credit" refers to the weight age given to a course, usually in terms of the number of instructional hours per week assigned to it. This explains why usually "credit" is taken to mean "credit hours". The credits also determine the volume of course contents and delivery of Course such as lectures, tutorials, practical, assignments etc.

  • For the purpose of credit determination, instruction is divided into three components:
    Lectures (L) - Classroom lectures of one-hour duration. 
    • Tutorials (T) : Special, elaborate instructions on specific topics (from Lectures) of one-hour duration. 
    • Practical (P) : Laboratory or field exercises in which the student has to do experiments or other practical work of two-hour duration. 
  • Each one of these components is considered as equal to one credit hour. One lecture (L) as well as one Tutorial. (T) of one hour a week is considered as one credit, whereas one Practical (P) of two hours a week is considered as one credit. The total weight age given to a course in terms of credits will be equal to L + P / T where L is the number of one hour Lectures per week, T is the number of one hour Tutorials per week, and P is the number of two hours Practical per week. This can be written in symbols as: C = L + P / T, Where, C is the credit weight age for a particular course.
