1.1 This is the soul of our innovative programme and radically alters the learning process to the benefit of the students. The result of a single examination does not determine the fate of the students. Examination and evaluation is a continuous and convenient exercise. 75% weightage is assigned to continuous evaluation while 25% weightage is assigned to external end semester evaluation in each major and half course.
1.2 Course: Each course is identified by a course number which contains three letters and three integers. The syllabus of each programme is divided into a convenient number of courses spread over the various semesters.
1.3. Continuous Evaluation: The academic progress of students registered under different programmes is evaluated continuously through a series of periodic evaluation comprising the following:
(i) Class Tests
(i) Record-cum-Home Assignments
(ii) Daily Home Assignments
(ii) Practical Tests
(iii) Additional Assignments
(iv) Seminars & Group Discussions
(v) Semester/Module End-Semester Examination
(vi) Semester/Module End-Semester Examination
The Institute follows the credit-system of evaluation. Each course is allotted credits in proportion to the time expected to be devoted by the candidate for that course.
A progress report is issued after each semester and the result of each academic session is declared based on a student's performance in both the semesters of the session. An academic session means both semesters of the session taken together.
Based on their academic performance, students are graded on an 11 point scale. A description of the grades, corresponding grade point values and the achievement level is given in the table below:
The Grades ‘E’, ‘E- ’, and ‘F’ are fail grades. Grades are separately awarded for internal and external evaluation in each course. The weightage of internal and external evaluation is in the ratio of 75% : 25%. Students are awarded Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) in each semester by averaging the Grade Points (GP) in the ratio of the credit weightage (C) of each course.
The procedure for calculation of SGPA is as follows:
The overall performance of all semesters for a given programme is given as Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is calculated in a similar way for the subjects credited during the entire programme. Multiplication of CGPA by 10 yields the equivalent percentage marks gained by a student.
Award of Division: The minimum CGPA for different divisions is given in the following table and is common for both PG and UG Programmes:
First with Distinction
Minimum Grade for a pass in all the courses of studies is ‘D-‘ in each individual course. Securing less than this Grade in any course will be treated as having failed in that course.
If a student fails in three or less than three courses in one academic session or up to one course each in odd and even semesters of an academic session for the Honours and Masters Programmes, the student may opt for Summer Remedial Course(s).
Failure in a course due to non-appearance in studies and/or examination(s) on medical or any other ground, whatsoever, will be treated as failure in that course.
If a student fails in more than three courses or up to one course each in odd and even semesters of an academic session for the Honours and Masters Programmes in one academic session or if he/she fails to pass all the courses after the summer remedial courses or if he/she misses one/both the semesters of an academic session in part or whole, he/she will get only one more chance to repeat all the courses of the said session in the next succeeding session but in that case he/she can do so only when he re-registers for all the courses afresh.
During the repeat session also, if a student fails to pass both the semesters of the academic session, he/she will be required to leave the Institute and he/she will not be re-admitted in the same course of study.
A student will be allowed to remain on the rolls of the Institute for a particular course of study for the duration not exceeding twice the period required in one attempt for passing that course of study. The aforesaid duration will be treated as maximum and shall also include failures as well as break(s) in study, if any, for that course of study.
Candidates opting for summer remedial courses shall prepare for the course content during the summer vacation and take remedial training in each course in the following July before being examined. Students appearing in the Remedial Examinations will be placed in the Grades D or lower only. Grade higher than D is not awarded in the Remedial Examinations. Students getting E, E- or F grades will be declared as failed.
