Students are normally admitted to the program in the fall Semester.Students are required to register the courses by themselves from the concerned college at the beginning of each semester. Registration in absence may be allowed only in rare cases at the discretion of the principal. In normal cases, a student’s nominee will not be allowed for course registration of the concerned student, but he/she may complete other formalities.

Attendance Requirements

A student must attend every lecture, tutorial, seminar and practical class. However, to accommodate for late registration, sickness and other contingencies, the attendance requirements will be a minimum of 80% of the classes actually held. If a student is absent in the class for more than four weeks without the permission of the concerned authority, his/her name will be removed from the college roll.

Evaluation System

A student’s academic performance in a course is evaluated in two phases:
• Internally by the concerned faculty member through quizzes, tutorials, lab works, home assignments, class tests, class participation, term papers, formal internal examination etc.
• Externally by the Office of the Controller of Examinations through semester-end examinations.

A fifty percent weight is given to each internal and external evaluation (semester-end examination). A student is required to pass the internal and external evaluations independently. The final grade awarded on the basis of his/her consolidated performance in both internal and external evaluations. A student will get NOT QUALIFIED (NQ) status in the internal evaluation if his/her performance falls below the minimum requirement. Such students will not be allowed to appear in the semester-end examination of that particular course.

In some rare and unusual circumstances, if a student is unable to complete all the required works for the course, he/she may be temporarily marked with an incomplete grade “I”. If all the required works are not completed within the following semester, the letter “I” will be automatically converted into “F”. The performance of a student is evaluated in terms of the following two indices:

The semester grade point average (SGPA) which is the grade point average for the semester and is given by:

SGPA = Total honor points earned in a semester/ total number of credit hours taken in a semester.
• The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) which is the grade point average for all completed semester and is given by:

CGPA =:: Cumulative total honor points earned/ cumulative total number of credit hours taken.

 

Repeating a Course

Since passing of all courses individually is a degree requirement, the student must retake the failing course when offered and must successfully complete the course. A student will be allowed to retake maximum of two courses to achieve a minimum CGPA of 2.0. The grade earned on the retake examination will substitute the earlier grade earned by the student in that course. A student can retake a course only when it is offered by the college/University.
