One needs to understand that these modules are advanced modules on the given subject matter. It would prove difficult for one who has not undergone the base course [during the campus component] to be able to grasp, effectively learn and do justice to and clear the advanced course. Further, since the course is going to be very closely linked to the practical aspects and the work place, one will have to work on exercises / activities that are linked to what one handles on the job - only those who are in these roles therefore will be able to effectively work on the cases / activities, etc. It is for these reasons that we have not opened up Module XI to all.
However, keeping the aspirations of the students to learn a specialized area from knowledge and career perspective, the students are permitted to take any one of the two specialized courses as "Audit Courses", even if they have not done the qualifying courses in the campus component. An "Audit course" would entitle the student to enroll for a course without the right to earn the credit. He will do select number of assignments, etc. but not the final examination to earn a Course Audit Certificate. This is a popular practice in few of the top institutes of India and very common in US universities. It gives an opportunity to the student to acquire the knowledge. The student CGPA is not affected by that course because he does not get a grade for doing this course.
