Exam Timetable

 1. All assessments of a course will be done on absolute marks basis. However, for the purpose of reporting the performance of a candidate, letter grades, each carrying certain number of points, will be awarded as per  the  range of  total marks  (out of 100) obtained by  the candidate  in each subject as detailed below:


Letter grade

Grade Points























“RA” denotes reappearance and “AB” denotes absence and hence the result is failure in the subject.

 “W” denotes withdrawal from appearing the examination in the subject. 

 (This grade will figure both in Marks Sheet as well as in Result Sheet.)  

 The Grade “I” denotes inadequate attendance and hence prevention from writing the end semester examination.

 The Grade “I and “W” will figure only in the Result Sheets.

 Grade sheet:

 After  results  are  declared, Grade Sheets will  be  issued  to  each  student which will  contain  the following details:

 i)   The college in which the candidate has studied

 ii)  The list of courses enrolled during the semester and the grade scored.

 iii) The Grade Point Average (GPA) for the semester and

 iv) The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of all courses enrolled from first semester onwards.

 GPA is the ratio of the sum of the products of the number of credits of courses enrolled and the points corresponding to the grades scored in those courses, taken for all the courses, to the sum of the credits of all courses registered.

 GPA = Sum of [C * GP] / Sum of C

              “C” Credits allotted for the subjects.

              “GP” Grade points earned.

 CGPA  will  be  calculated  in  a  similar  manner,  considering  all  the  courses  enrolled  from  first semester. “RA”, “I” and “W” grades will be excluded for calculating GPA and CGPA.


Attendance and Requirements for Completion of the Semester

 1  A  Candidate  who  has  fulfilled  the  following  conditions  shall  be  deemed  to  have  satisfied  the requirements for completion of a semester. Ideally every student is expected to attend all classes and secure 100% attendance. However, in order to allow for certain unavoidable reasons such as medical / participation in sports / personal (not exceeding 25%)  the student is expected to attend atleast 75% of the classes provided not less than 60% in individual courses during any semester commencing from first semester.

 2  However,  a  candidate who  secures  overall  attendance  between  65%  and  74%  in  that  current semester  due  to  medical  reasons  (prolonged  hospitalization  /  accident  /  specific  illness)  or participation in sports events may be permitted to appear for the current semester examinations subject  to  the  condition  that  the  candidate  shall  submit  the medical  certificate  for  the medical ground reasons or proof certificate for the sports persons, attested by the Head of the Institution. The same shall be forwarded to the Controller of Examinations for record purposes.

 3 Candidates who secure less than 65% of overall attendance shall not be permitted to write the University examination at the end of the semester and not permitted to go  to the next semester. They are required to repeat the incomplete semester in the next academic year. A candidate who is required  to  repeat  the  subjects of a particular  semester  for want of attendance  / progress or who  desires  to  rejoin  the  course  after  a  period  of  discontinuance  is  permitted  to  repeat  the subjects of  that  semester. Candidates may  join  the  semester  (for which  he  /  she  is  eligible  or permitted) only at the time of its normal commencement for the regular batch of students. 

4 The 5 marks for attendance shall be awarded as given below:

 Theory, Practical courses and Project Work

 76% to 80% of attendance                               -               1 Mark

 81% to 85% of attendance                               -               2 Marks

 86% to 90% of attendance                               -               3 Marks

 91% to 95% of attendance                               -               4 Marks
