The Proposed New Course in PHYSICS is based on Model curriculum of the University Grant Commission for under graduate classes are redesigned in accordance with New Education Policy.
Objectives : 
To update course contents by introductory recent development in PHYSICS to ensure the students of this country do not have any academic disadvantages over their counterpart’s overseas.
To meet the growing demands of specialization and advanced courses in applied and pure science.
To help the colleges to update and modernize their laboratories.
Physics syllabus for the B.Sc. (Physics) students
"Each paper of the theory and practical is to be completed by assigning six periods per week (3 periods for the theory per paper and 3 periods for practical per paper per batch) of minutes."
The number of student in a practical batch should not exceed Fifteen.
PATTERN OF EXAMINATION
There will be two courses in theory and two practical in the university examination. The pattern will be as follows :
