Research Scholar personally visited the physical education department of all the selected universities of West Zone. The data for the present study was collected through different syllabi was analyzed by computing the following statistic stepwise: 1) Data was coded in the numerical form for the statistical analysis. 2) Frequency distribution was used for assessing the objectives of the present study. Following conclusion was drawn from the obtained results: It was found that there is varied structure in marking scheme and weightage of theory papers & theory papers practical’s in selected West Zone universities in B.P.Ed.
