Examination System:Examination system for this programme is designed to maintain quality standards. Repeater students will need to pay the Examination fees depending on the number of courses he/she wishes to appear. Students may not be allowed to appear in End Examination without Identity Card. Structure and Pattern The content of the programme is divided into a number of theory, theory plus practical and Project Courses.
1.THEORY COURSES The theory courses are of 4 CP (Credit Point). Each course is having its own types of question set depending upon the need of the aspects of individual subjects and it is mentioned in the syllabus. The duration of the end examination (EE) for 4 CP shall be 180 minutes and maximum marks shall be 80. Continuous Assessment: It will consist of 4 sets of Assignments (20marks each) thus for 80 marks. The marks obtained in these assignments will be converted into 20 marks. Total Marks per Subject: 100. A student will need to pass in the combined aggregate of the CA and EE by securing minimum 40 marks our of the total 100 marks (CA+EE) There will not be any repeater examination for the CA. A student failing in CA but passing in the total out of 100 shall be deemed to have successfully completed the course. Such students, like any other students, may improvise their score in the course by reappearing in the EE as a repeater.
2.THEORY CUM PRACTICAL COURSES The theory cum practical course have two passing heads: (a) Theory Component (4 CP, total 100 Marks, 80M for EE and 20 M for CA) (b) Practical Component (2 CP, Total 50 M)
A student will need to pass in the theory component and Practical component independently. A person who secures more than 40 % marks in Total 150 Marks but fails in Theory Component will be treated as having failed in the given T+Pr course. Such a student must appear in the theory component EE and secure such marks that his aggregate in the theory component is better than 40%. Similarly a student not securing more than or equal to 40% Marks in practical shall be declared unsuccessful and will have to reappear as a repeater in the practical component as per the rule.
For the details of evaluation for Theory Component read “1. Theory Courses” above.
Practical journal is a compulsory part of the evaluation, failing which the student would not be allowed to appear in the final examination. There will be continuous assessment of practical performed the theory courses are of 2 CP. The Practical courses are of 50 marks. The distribution of practical marks are as follows:
Viva voce 15 Work book (Journal) 10 Performance of practical activity 25 Total Marks 50
3.Project The Project Work shall carry 150 marks, to be allotted as under:
Project Evaluation by the external examiner: 75 marks Project Evaluation at the Study Centre: 75 marks Total 150 marks
4.Marks Reporting Performance of the student will be reported in the mark sheet for every course for which a student has registered and for those courses for which he appears as a repeater.
For the theory courses, the CA (out of 20), EE(out of 80) and Total marks (out of 100) obtained will be reported.
For the theory plus practical courses,
a. the marks in the theory Component will be reported as (CA(out of 20), EE(out of 80) and Total marks (out of 100)
b. Marks in Practical Component will be reported as (Journal (out of 10), Viva Voce(out of 15), performance in practical activities (out of 25) and the total (out of 50) shall be reported.
For the Project Courses the marks for CA(out of 75) and EE (Out of 75) and Total (out of 150) shall be reported. Student can improve his/her previous grades obtained in a course at any year by reappearing in End Examination. Only the best of the past examination performance, of a student in any course will be reported in the grade-cum-mark sheet. But no grade improvement shall be allowed after the award of a degree. Hence student should consider improvement in grades before applying for the convocation. For reporting the consolidated performance of a student in a Consolidated Mark sheet may be issued at the end of successive completion of all the course and components. Performance of the student will be reported in the mark sheet every year and for the courses for which he appears as a repeater.
