Welcome to Geology Courses of the BSCG programme under CBCS scheme

10 April, 2020

Dear Learner,

WELCOME to IGNOU’s Bachelor Degree Programme in Sciences (B.Sc.) under UGC-CBCS scheme!

On behalf of the Geology Discipline Group, I welcome you to the B.Sc. programme. By now you must have received your Enrollment number, identity card and the study materials. We hope that your time with us will be both fulfilling and successful.

The Bachelor Degree Programme in Sciences (B.Sc.) under UGC-CBCS scheme is a 3-year programme during which you will study the courses you have chosen along with Geology. Apart from these core subjects, you will also study skill enhancement courses and compulsory courses in language and environment. You will receive support from IGNOU through the Regional Centre and Study Centre which will be allotted to you and also from IGNOU’s website.

At your study centre, you will be able to avail yourself of the counselling for all the courses. It is not mandatory to attend the counselling session of theory courses but it is necessary to attend all lab sessions for laboratory courses.

You may be studying full-time or you may be employed and studying part-time whilst working. In order to succeed in this programme, you will need to have a positive attitude, patience, self motivation and perseverance. If you are employed, you will be required to have good time management skills because balancing work, home life and study can be quite difficult. Our advice is to work hard towards your goal systematically, don’t leave assignments to the last minute and appear in term-end examinations for a course only when you are sure that you have learnt the subject matter of the course well enough. We would like you to make the most of your time with us, which can be extended up to a maximum of 6 years (i.e. 12 semesters). We would like to provide you all academic support throughout the time you are with us studying the courses and help you to succeed.
