The new educational policy that is introduced in the country does not seem to fulfill the need of learners and earnest seekers of education in different faculties. It seems that those passing the college years again plunge into a long session of school life. Lastly, those students who used to pass their intermediate session did select two optional subjects for graduation BA/BSc and then master in either subject or many other subjects in two years.
Now masters degree policy ie MA/MSc, has been revised and BS degree for four years in stead is made the degree equivalent to mastery. A continuous four years study just as the school period will make one attain his mastery on a particular subject and this four years term will make a loss to one in some aspects:
1: One will not be able to be graduate in early 20s and young boys will no more sit in commission exams and they will sit in contest when they turn into men.
2: One doing BS will be exhausted to make any mastery in different subjects and this process will take his life remaining a pupil.
3: For four years University life will become like a junior school life and there will be no mid term degree.
4: The fees of admission and semesters have become so high and courses so costly that a common citizen can not afford it.
5: The 5th class degree or primary degree has also been introduced which has no significance and it is also a burden on both the minor students and the boards.
