This document, written by Dhruba J. Saikia, outlines a proposal to provide, holistic, broad-based education, with Cotton College State University in mind. This proposal incorporates the basic ideas of a Semester System, Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), Continuous Assessment and Grading Pattern (CAGP), and curriculum development with a reasonable degree of flexibility. A number of Universities and Institutes have put detailed descriptions of their credit systems on the web. Ideas and examples taken from these web pages have been extremely useful while compiling this document.
