The process of evaluation will be continuous throughout the semester and involves components such as sessional tests, quizzes, surprise quiz, case analysis, assignments, practical examination constituting a total weightage of 40% of total marks.
Solution key will be displayed on the notice board / e-learning website immediately after the evaluation component with evaluation scheme.
Comprehensive Examination will carry a total weightage of 60% of total marks.
In order to maintain transparency in evaluation, the test and quiz answer sheets will be shown to the students within one week of conducting the exam. If a student is not convinced with the marks awarded he/she can apply for recheck. However, the student can apply for recheck on the day of returning the answer sheet within the classroom only.
To check answer sheets of comprehensive examination, a student has to apply on payment of requisite fee within a stipulated timeframe.
All courses have a Lecture-Tutorial- Experiment/Design component (L-T-P) to indicate the contact hours. ‘T’ and ‘P’ components of a course may be void. Separate pure laboratory course (0-0-P) may also be provided. All courses have a credit count. Teaching of courses would be reckoned in terms of credits. Every course has a list of courses (may be void) as its pre-requisite. A student who has qualified in all the courses in the pre-requisite would be allowed to register in the course. The Department concerned has the prerogative to waive the prerequisite (if it is satisfied through a test) if the student has gained sufficient proficiency to take up the course.
For calculating Credit, each lecture and tutorial hour will be considered as one credit and two practical hours as one credit.
The curricula for all the programmes in the first year shall be common for all disciplines (except Bio Technology). However, slight deviations are permitted with prior approval from Board of Studies and Academic Council.
