The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) degree programme offered by Mangalore University is mainly designed to prepare effective secondary school teachers. The programme essentially aims at providing the student teachers an insight into the educational scenario in the world with a specific reference to India.123
The existing Regulation governing B.Ed, course of Mangalore University was framed before the enforcement of KSU Act 2000. Hence, this Regulation was revised as per Section 44 (1) (c) of KSU Act 2000 and forwarded to the Government for the assent of His Excellency, the Chancellor in the year 2004. Afterwards NCTE prescribed minimum percentage of marks for admission as 45% in qualifying examination. Based on NCTE norms University made amendments to the regulation in consultation with various bodies of the University and submitted to the Government for approval. But these regulations are not assented by His Excellency, so far.
Presently, NCTE in its notification dated 31-8-2009 has prescribed eligibility criteria as below;
(a) Candidates with at least fifty percent marks either in the Bachelor’s Degree and/ or in the Master’s degree or any other qualification equivalent thereto, are eligible for admission to the B.Ed, degree programme.
(b) The reservation in seats and relaxation in the qualifying marks in favour of the reserved
categories shall be as per the rules of the concerned Government.
Accordingly, the regulations governing B.Ed, degree programme is once again revised
