Academic Calender:

The academic session begins after the Diwali holidays, which falls in October- November. The academic year consists of two parts, each part includes 15 weeks of instruction followed by about 4 weeks of regular and 3 weeks of back paper examinations. The students who have not passed an examination in the first attempt can appear for the same again, such examinations are called back-paper examinations.

Examination and Marking Schemes:

The students’ achievement in each subject is evaluate by internal assessment during the course followed by a final examination at the end of each half yearly part. A weightage of 20 percent for the internal assessment and that of 80 percent for the half yearly examination are allocated for the theoretical component of a subject. The half yearly examination of all theory component are conducted through written tests. In case of practical components, the method of continuous assessment is adopted; in some cases, half yearly examinations are also conducted.

The students must obtain 40 percent in the internal assessment and 40 percent in the half yearly examination of each subject. Student who have not obtained the prescribed pass marks in the internal assessment of a subject will not be allowed to sit in the half yearly examinations of continue his/ her studies in the third year. Similarly, a student must pass all the papers of the second year to continue his/ her studies in the fourth year.

Students who passed all the components of all subjects in all of the ten parts are considered to have successfully completed the course. The overall achievement of each student is measured by final aggregate percentage which is obtained by providing a weightage to each of half yearly aggregate percentages scored by the student as prescribed below:

First and Second Years : 20 percent each

Third and Fourth Years : 30 percent each

Depending upon the final aggregate percentage scored, a division is award as follows:

80 percent and above – Distinction

65 percent and above – First Division

50 percent and above – Second Division

40 percent and above – Pass
