Duration of The Course
It takes almost ten to eleven months to cover the syllabus of General studies in the institute. Afterwards students are advised to go for consolidation of what they have learnt and they are allowed to come and consult the teachers in case any problem arises. They can take tests in individual capacity as well to get their performance evaluated.
Methodology Of The Course
At IIIASA, we believe that the best of the technology can be a servant only to a good teacher. A scientific methodology of teaching necessarily involves a simple and rhythmic movement from the basic to the applied aspect of the subject matter be it the Polity, Economy, Geography, Science and others. It is about imparting the required tools of analysis and to give shape to the thought process of the students based on vivid explanation and diagrammatic presentation of the theme on the screen. As a part of the evolved process, the focus is always on calibrating students with the ability
- To develop scientific temperament to appreciate things and situations with a more stable intellectual disposition.
- To strike fine balance between conflicting interests and values to reach a meaningful conclusion.
- To develop an insatiable quest to understand and appreciate the world around us.
- To think, to organize one’s thoughts and to give expression to the same with due relevance, clarity and precision.
As a part of the policy, various subjects in General Studies are taken up in sequential fashion so that students develop a more integrated and cohesive understanding of the subject at one go. But current affairs are discussed on regular basis.
