Since the syllabus of a comprehensive exam comprises the contents of all the courses, students must have to go through and review all the subject matter of all the courses from MSS level. So he/she can recapitulate his/her knowledge and find out the link between them. The question of Comprehensive exam usually consists of different theories with real life application and recent economic issues, which motivates students to gather knowledge beyond textbooks and being updated about real life scenario. The Viva exam gives the opportunity to check the ability of graduates and gives them the flavor of real life job viva before entering the job market. After successful completion of all courses, students will be allowed to register for the course Comprehensive and Viva Voce (Eco-614).
