The mid-semester examination is a pre-requisite for writing the final theory and practical exam. The exams are conducted during regular class hours. Students failing to write the mid-semester exam, will not be permitted to attend the classes further in the course and will be awarded an ‘E’ grade.
The final theory examination is conducted after the working days of the semester. The Dean and Controller of Examinations approve the examination schedule for the mid-semester and final examinations. 80% attendance is mandatory for writing the final theory examination for each subject of a semester.
The final practical examination is conducted during the last practical class of the respective course for two and a half hours. The marks for the practical will be based on the student’s performance as evaluated by the course teacher and external examiners and approved by the Controller of Examinations. The assessment is made by the external examiner for the Reappearance / Improvement examination too. The marks awarded in the previous exam for record and assignment, if valued, will be carried over for computing the grade in the Reappearance / Improvement Examination.
The results of the course are indicated by grade points ranging from 0 to 10. Grade point is the total marks in percentage divided by 10, rounded off to two decimals.
The minimum grade point of 6.00 has to be secured for the successful completion of a course. Securing a grade point less than 6.00 in a course will be treated as ‘F’ and the grade point will be zero for calculating the GPA/OGPA. An Overall Grade Point Average [OGPA] of 6.50 shall be the minimum requirement for the award of Degree for Under Graduate programmes.
E – Incomplete [Lack of 80% Attendance]
F – Fail
RR – Re-Registration
