Teaching and Learning Approach
Homework ProjectsUA believes that revision is the key technique to remembering textual concepts. That is why students are assigned home works. Homework is checked and returned promptly each week for each subject. This helps the students to keep pace with their studies in class.
Education Tours/Field TripsStudents are taken on UA-organized research-oriented tours and field trips for their projects which are part of their syllabus: Population Studies, Sociology, Hotel Management, Marketing, and Mass Communication. Based on these project reports, final NEB practical examinations are evaluated by external subject experts.
Special Classes for Merit StudentsMerit students selected from their send-up examination marks are given special coaching classes aiming at their final NEB exam so they could deal with any kind of questions that might come in their final exam.
Debates and PresentationThis is an extension of the student as a Tutor Program. UA encourages interested students to take up public speaking. Excellent performers in a Tutor Program are engaged in debates and presentations on selected issues of public concern. This is part of the extra-curricular activities. Students are encouraged to participate in talks and presentations outside the college.
Guest LecturesIn order to make students acquainted with the latest works and theories on the subjects, guest lecturers, reputed teachers or writers on the subject are invited to the college for guest lectures.
Use of Audio-visuals
In order to enhance the teaching skills and make learning more comprehensible, constantly takes the help of modern teaching techniques. Experienced teachers at UA make students grasp many complex lessons with ease through the use of appropriate multimedia presentations and various audio-visual programmes. All classrooms at UA are equipped with a state-of-the-art multimedia projector, CCTV surveillance system, and sound-enhancing technology making every classroom a Smart Classroom.
Free Tutorial Classes
Students are also given as many revision classes as they need. These revision classes are free of cost and are provided to meet their needs.
Student as a Tutor ProgrammeStudents tend to forget most of the lessons taught in classrooms. So UA has adopted an approach to make them remember what they have learned. After the second term examination, students are made to deliver a lecture on whatever they have been taught from the beginning of the session. This is an essential part of an academic exercise.
Project WorksStudents are required to complete and submit project reports, related to subjects based on class work and data collection from a field visit to commercial/ industrial/ media and socio-cultural scientific organizations under the guidance of the subject teachers. Evaluation marks are given for such project works which will eventually be added to the final send-up results.
Handouts SystemThe teachers of related subjects provide students with handouts as supporting materials for the given lesson. But students have to prepare their own notes referring to the class lectures, textbooks, reference books, and the given handouts.
Interaction with Parents and GuardiansUA has a tradition of regular interaction with parents and guardians. After each terminal examination, the Principal, Academic Head, Coordinators, Counselors, and the concerned faculty subject teachers discuss the academic performance of the student with his/her parent or guardian. The interaction with parents and guardians is also undertaken when students have a serious problem with their studies, discipline, and irregularities in their classes.
Orientation on Course of Study and Model Questions
UA gives orientation lectures for a couple of days before regular classes start. It provides booklets containing courses of study for both classes XI and XII at the beginning of the academic session. Students are provided with a set of model questions, chapter-wise questions including the UA examinations, past Board Examinations and send-up questions of another top well-known college in each subject to familiarize students with the Board pattern and possible questions pattern. Revision/ discussion classes focusing on board exams are conducted after the send-up exams.
Intensive Care Classes (ICC)
Intensive care classes are specially conducted for weak performed students after Send-up Examination. The main purpose of ICC is to strengthen the confidence of students and make them capable to appear in NEB Final Examination.
