The Controller of Examinations would announce the results of the final examinations. Admissions will be given by following University Rules.

Procedure for Internal Evaluation

1. The marks allotted for internal evaluation (20%) in each paper will be based on the following :

(a) Sessional Examination I

(b) Sessional Examination II

(c) Home Assignment, Seminars and Group Discussion, or related work depending on the decision of the teachers/college concerned. Home assignment etc. (as in (c) above) may be given to the students at any time during the semester. These may be regarded as one question (out of four) in each of the sessional examination and marked accordingly. Thus (c) above is a part of the sessional examinations and the total internal marks in a-c above would be 20% of the marks allotted to the paper.

2. Each sessional examination will be of one hour duration and be conducted by the concerned teacher of each paper. The setting of question paper, invigilation duty, evaluation of answer scripts for each paper will be done by the concerned teacher(s) as a part of his/her normal duty.

3. The teacher concerned will fix the exact date of the sessional examination in each paper following the guidelines of academic schedule. Each sessional examination will be of one hour duration and the students should write the examination in proper University answer books.

4. After evaluation the answer scripts should be shown to the students and corrections should be made if there are any. After this, the answer scripts should be collected back from the students. The entire process of evaluation of a sessional examination should not take more than two weeks from the date of examination.

5. There is no provision for re-appearing or “repeat”/ “betterment” in the sessional examination. If a student miss one or both examination for valid reasons (as evidenced by medical certificate or other authentic documents) then the teacher /college concerned may allow the student a separate examinations using the teachers own discretion.

6. If a paper is taught by more than one teacher then the concerned teacher should cooperated in conducting the internal evaluation. Each sessional examination for a particular paper should be one examination of one hour duration even if several teachers may be teaching the paper. However, since the contents of a paper in a semester examination is approximately half that of a full paper in annual examination, it is strongly recommended that one paper in a semester system be taught by only one teacher.

7. At the end of the semester and before the final semester examination begin, the concerned teacher(s) should submit the internal marks in proper marksheets along with the answer scripts to the C.E., G.U.

8. The affiliated colleges should submit the internal evaluation marks and the answer scripts directly to the Controller of Examinations.

9. Scrutiny of the answer scripts and scaling of the internal marks may be arranged by the Controller of Examinations if necessary.

 

“CREDIT & GRADING”

1. Definition of Credit:

(a) The theory paper would have one credit for each hour of instruction per week in a semester. The activities include lectures, tutorials and others for internal evaluation (Seminar, group discussion, laboratory/demonstration session mini project etc.) A theory paper (which is equivalent to 100 marks of course load) should be of 6 (six) credit points which would consist of 4 hrs, of lectures and 2 hrs of tutorial & other activities. A theory paper of 50 marks would have 3 (three) credit points: 2 hrs of lectures + 1 hrs tutorial (& others)

 (b) Practical papers / courses would have one credit point for every 2 hrs of laboratory work per week in a semester. If the number of hrs per week is an odd number, appropriate adjustment be made it to the nearest even number for example.

1) 3 hrs lab per day x 2 days per week = 6 hrs = 3 credits

2) 3 hrs lab per day x 3 days per week = 9 hrs = 4 credits

3) 3 hrs lab per day x 6 days per week = 18 hrs = 9 credits.

If the total number of practical courses is 18 hrs per week, then 3 hrs per week be devoted as home work for preparing the report (i.e. lab book) and other activity related to practical.

(c) P.G. Dissertation by research work /projects would be of 12 credit points by 24 hrs of work per week in a semester. The dissertation would involve activities such as literature survey preparation of project report, computation, seminar, presentation, demonstrations, viva-voce examinations, and (if required) visit to other institutions or research lab for data collection etc. About six to nine hrs of work may be allowed to such activities outside class hours and about 18 to 15 hrs of work for the laboratory work.

(d) Other type of work such as departmental seminar, field/industrial training would be compulsory for the student, but no credit or marks for internal evaluation be assigned for such activities. Moreover, class attendance should not be considered for internal (or external) evaluation. Attendance including of department seminars would be treated under the University rules of minimum 75% attendance required for appearing in the examinations.

2. Total Credit per semester:

Every student must complete a minimum of 30 credits per week in a semester, this amounts to about 30 hrs of contacts teaching per week. The total number of credit for a four semester course should be between 120-140. For a two semester or a eight-semester course the total credit points may be worked out accordingly.

3. Core Course and Elective courses:

(a) Core courses are compulsory set of papers which also include those offered for specialization in each branch of the subject.

(b) Elective Courses: The essence of the credit system is the freedom of choice given to the students for opting for courses /papers within and outside the department. Moreover, student’s mobility from one institution to another be encouraged by a credit transfer mechanism. However, the total credit points thus earned by opting for elective courses should be a minimum of 20% of total credit (viz. 24 credits out of total of 120 credits).

(i) Students’ counseling by the teachers is a must to guide the students to opt for elective courses those are relevant to the concerned subject in which the student is registered for a degree.

(ii) The students may be allowed to complete the elective course at their own pace. For example, a student who wishes to opt for a course or do his /her Dissertation /Research work in another institution, may be allowed to do so after completing other requirements in the parent institution.

(iii) Good students may be allowed to take extra load (over specified minimum 24 credits) in electives. The grade sheet/ Transcripts would the extra papers as Audit Course, but the grades obtained by the students would not be used for the calculation of GPA and CPI.

4. Grading System :

(a) Conversion of marks to Grades :

Actual marks secured by a group of candidates are converted into Relative Percentile (R) before conversion into Relative Letter Grades. The maximum Actual marks (i,e. Highest mark) (M) secured in a particular Group is converted into 100% and other actual marks (A) secured by the students of the same groups are converted to the Relative Percentile.

R= (100 / M)XA where R= Relative Percentile

M= Maximum (Highest) marks in the class

A= Actual marks of a student who passed I.e., if the actual marks is not less than 30%

(b) Conversion Table for Relative Percentile into Letter Grades and Grade points.

  (C) Conversion of Grades of CGPA & CPI :

Grade point average (GPA) is used as a numerical survey of academic achievement, First, Grades are assigned to points in a 10 points scale as follows:

 

A= 10 points, B= 8 points, C= 6 points, D= 4 points, E= 2 points, F=0 points.

Secondly, the hours of credit for each course are multiplied by the Grade point value to determine the honour points. The honour points are then added for all the courses / papers in a Semester. The same of honour points in a given semester is then divided by the total number of credits.

Example :

Grade point average (GPA) = 480 / 60 = 8.0

Cumulative Performance Index (CPI):

The final result of a four Semester Course is expressed as the average Grade points obtained by the student in the entire course:

CPI = [(CPA) Sem-I+ (GPA) Sem-II (GPA) Sem-III+GPA Sem-IV ]/ 4

(d) Conversion Formula: for m Grades to P.C. of marks for Humanities and Social

Science:

For CGPA upto 9.5                :           (5XCGPA)+20

For CGPA above 79.5           :          (65XCGPA) -550

So, for c lass-I minimum CGPA be 8

For class –II minimum CGPA be 5

 

For other subjects / disciplines            :

For CGPA upto 9.00                          :           (10 X CGPA)-5

For CGPA above 9.00                                    (15 X CGPA)-50
