 Complementary courses: Duration of each external examination is 3 Hrs. The division of marks between theory and practicals shall be stipulated by the Board of studies concerned.

 Open courses: Duration of each external examination is2 Hrs.

The division of marks between theory and practicals shallbe stipulated by the Board of studies concerned.

The maximum marks of different programmes in same faculty shall be same.

For example, the total marks for each programme of the Science and Commerce faculty are 1800 and that for humanities is 1500.

 

 Attendance:A student shallbe permitted to appear for the Semester Examination, only if he/she secures not less than 75%attendance in each semester. Attendance shall be maintained by the concerned Department. Condonationof shortage of attendance to a maximum of 12 days in a semester subject to a maximum of two times during the whole period of a Degree Programme may be granted by the University. A student who is not eligible for condonation of shortage of attendance shall repeat the course along with the subsequent batch.

 If a student registered in first semester of the UG degree programme is continuously absent from the classes for more than 14 daysat the beginning of the Semester without informing  the authorities, the matter shall immediately be brought to the notice of the Registrar of the University. The names of such students shall be removed from the rolls.

   Student who complete the course and secure the minimum required attendance for a semester and register for the university examinations at the end of each semester alone will be promoted to higher semesters.

Grace Marks: Grace Marks may be awarded to a student for meritorious achievement in co-curricular activities (in Sports/Arts/NSS/NCC)  carried out besides the regular class hours. Such a benefit is applicable and limited to each academic year spreading over three years (6 Semesters). No credit shall be assigned for such activities.

.Examination

There shall be University examinations at the end of each semester. A candidate who fails to register for University Examination shall not be permitted to move to next semester.

Practical examinations shall be conducted by the University at the end of second , fourth and sixth semester

 External Viva-voce, if any, shall be conducted along with the Practical examination/project evaluation.

 Project evaluation shall be conducted at the end of Sixth semester. 20 % of marks are awarded through internal assessment.

 Improvement: Improvement of courses in a particular semester can be done only once.The student shall avail the improvement chance in the succeeding year along with subsequent batch. There shall be no improvement chance for internal evaluation. The internal marks already obtained will be carried forward to determine the new grade/mark in the improvement examination. If the candidate fails to appear for the improvement examination after registration, or if there is no change in the results of the improvement examination, the mark/grade obtained in the first appearance will be retained.

 There shall be no supplementary examinations. For reappearance /  improvement the students can appear along with next batch.

 

Evaluation and Grading

  Mark system is followed instead of direct grading for each question. For each course in the Semester letter grade, grade point and % of marks are introduced in 7- point indirect grading system.

Course evaluation:

 The evaluation scheme for each course shall contain two parts

a) Internal Assessment (IA)

b) External evaluation (End Semester Evaluation ESE)

 20% weight shall be given to the internal assessment. The remaining 80% weight

shall be for the external evaluation.

Internal Assessment:

 a.20% of the total marks in each course are for internal assessment.

 b.  The internal assessment shall be based on a predetermined transparent system involving written test, assignments/ seminars/ viva and attendance in respect of theory courses and lab involvement and records, tests and attendance in respect of practical courses.

 c.  Components with percentage of marks of Internal Evaluation of Theory

Courses are-Attendance 25%, Assignment/ Seminar/Viva 25 % and Test paper 50%  For practical courses- Attendance 25 %, lab involvement and Record 50%

and test 25% as far as internal is concerned.

 

 

Attendance of each course will be evaluated as below-

 

Above 90% attendance -

100% marks allotted for attendance

 

85 to 89%

80%

 

80 to 84 %

60%

 

76 to 79 %

There shall not be any chance for improvement for internal marks.

External Evaluation:

 

External evaluation carries 80% of marks.

The external examination in practical courses shall be conducted by two examiners ( one internal and one external ) appointed by the University. No practical examination will be conducted in odd semester. Practical examinations shall be conducted in the even semester (II, IV and VI)

Project: Every student of a UG Programme shall have to work on a project of minimum two credits under the supervision of a faculty member as per the curriculum. Project evaluation shall be conducted at the end of Sixth semester.

Projects shall be submitted in the last week of February in VI th semester. Belated and incomplete projects will not be entertained.

 

Revaluation: In the new system revaluation is permissible. The prevailing rules of revaluation are applicable.  Students can apply for photocopies of answer scripts of external examinations.

Applications for photocopies/Scrutiny/ revaluation should be submitted within the time stipulated by the University. The fee for this shall be as decided by the

university.

 

 INDIRECT GRADING SYSTEM

 Indirect Grading System based on a7 -point scale is used to evaluate the performance of students.

 Each course is evaluated by assigning marks with a letter grade (A+, A, B, C, D, E and F) to that course by the method of indirect grading.

 A candidate securing E grade with 40% of aggregate marks and 40% separately for ESE for each course shall be declared to have passed in that course.

 Appearance for Internal Assessment (IA) and End Semester Evaluation (ESE)(external)) are compulsory and no grade shall be awarded to a candidate if she/he is absent for IA/ESE or both.

 A student who fails to secure a minimum E grade for a pass in a course is permitted to write the examination along with the next batch.

 After the successful completion of a Semester, Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) of a student in that semester is calculated using the formula given below.

 

SGPA      =     Sum of the Credit points of all courses in a semester

                             Total Credits in that Semester

 

For the successful completion of a semester, a student should pass all courses and

score a minimum SGPA of 1. However, a student is permitted to move to the next

Semester irrespective of SGPA obtained.

The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of the student is calculated at the end of each semester. The CGPA of a student determines the overall academic level of the student in each stage of the programme. CGPA can be calculated by the following formula:

 

CGPA     =      Sum of the Credit points of all completed  semesters

                                          Total Credits required

 

SGPA and CGPA shall be rounded off to two decimal places.

 

Overall Grade Point Average (OGPA) of the student is calculated at the end of

The programme. The OGPA of a student determines the overall academic level the

student in a programme and is the criterion for ranking the students. OGPA can be

calculated by the following formula

 

OGPA   =   Sum of Credits points obtained in six Semesters

                        Total Credits (120)   

 

An overall letter grade OGPA for the entire programme shall be awarded to a student after completing the entire programme successfully

 In the event a candidate fails to secure E grade (40 % marks) in any course in a semester, consolidation of SGPA and CGPA will be made only after obtaining E grade (40 % marks) in the failed course in the subsequent appearance.

 

 GRADE CARD

 

The University shall issue to the students grade/marks card (by online) on completion of each semester, which shall contain the following information:

 

a) Name of University

b) Name of College

c) Month and Year of examination

d) Title of Under-Graduate Programme

e) Semester concerned

f) Name and Register Number of student

g) Code number, Title and Credits of each course opted in the semester

h) Internal marks, External marks, Total marks, Grade point (G), Credit point and

Letter grade in each course in the semester

i) The total credits, total credit points and SGPA in the semester (corrected to two decimal places)

j) Percentage of total marks and CGPA

 

The final Grade/mark Card issued at the end of the final semester shall contain the details of all courses taken during the entire programme including those taken over and above the prescribed minimum credits for obtaining the degree. The final grade card shall show the percentage of total marks, OGPA (corrected to two decimal places) and the overall letter grade of a student for the entire programme. The final grade/mark card shall also include the grade points and letter grade of common course, core courses, complementary courses and open courses separately. This is to be done in a seven point indirect scale.
