In view of the curricula being prescribed and designed by the University of Rajasthan through Board of Studies meeting annually and to be followed by the affiliated colleges, the college obviously does not offer diversity and flexibility to learners. Recently, the College has got sanction for career oriented courses which is very encouraging for the College and beneficial to the students.
However, permanent faculty teaches all classes and multi-method of teaching is adopted by the departments, courses are unitized and progress of contents is monitored regularly. Timetable is especially taken care of as per convenience of the students. Directorate of College Education does periodical academic audit of the college.
CRITERION - II: TEACHING - LEARNING AND EVALUATION
College admits students on the basis of students academic records. In addition to University examinations class tests are held to assess the progress of students. The college has no mechanism of catering to individual differences among learners. The teachers adhere to their lecture plans and finish courses on time. UGC has sanctioned funds for conducting remedial courses to the educationally disadvantaged students, which has to be implemented immediately. Pass percentage of students is good ( 81%) and one student of B.Sc. has topped in the university examination in 2004.
Evaluation of teachers performance is done by self-appraisal method. There is a need for having monitoring cell to keep a record and monitor teachers performance.
