What actually we are following, Term or Semester?
« on: March 22, 2011, 07:20:12 PM »

Semester system is new to us.   Sometimes we also use “Term” as for Semester. There are some basic differences between these two words. May be there are 4 months & 6 months conditions.

In our country often we use both with together!!! We are saying Mid-term again we are saying semester final but if we say mid-term then we should use term-final. But we are saying semester final. Let me allowto give an example –

A student informing his/her parents, “My Mid-term exam is going on”. Same student after few days saying his/her parents, “My Semester final will be in March”.
Two words are Mid-Term & semester Final. What actually we are following, Term or Semester?

Its quite simple actually. We follow "Semester" system which is divided into terms. For us we have mainly 2 terms first is called "Mid-Term" and 2nd is called "Term-Final/Semester Final".

Others may have better idea though.

Hope this helps.
