Examination Regulations
(Under Grading system on 10 point scale)
System of Evaluation(Grading System)
  • A seven-point grading system on a 10 point scale is followed for grading in the examinations. The details are given in a table below:
  • Qualification Grade Score on 100 Point
    Outstanding ‘O’ 90 to 100 10
    Excellent ‘E’ 80 to 89 9
    Very good ‘A’ 70 to 79 8
    Good ‘B’ 60 to 69 7
    Fair ‘C’ 50 to 59 6
    Below average ‘D’ 40 to 49 5
    Failed ‘F’ Below 40 2
  • CREDIT POINT = CREDIT X POINT for each course item.
  • CREDIT INDEX (CI) = ∑ CREDIT POINT of all course items in a semester.
  • Semester Grade Point Average
    SGPA = CI / ∑ CREDITS (for a semester)
  • Cumulative Grade Point Average
Supplementary Examination Rules and Regulations

A supplementary Examination is held annually at the end of each academic year and before the start of the next academic year. Supplementary examination is held only for the current level theory subjects. The student enrolled in Summer Term Classes may be allowed to appear the Internal, Sessional and Practical Examinations along with the Theory subjects during the Supplementary Examinations.

  • The students will only be allowed to appear for their failed papers in the current level subject to a maximum of 50% of the total subjects for the current year rounded off taking together the subjects of both odd and even semester of that year.
  • A student will ordinarily be awarded one Grade less than he/she actually obtains in a subject item in the Supplementary Examination subject to a minimum of C Grade or below, which would remain unchanged. However, there will not be any grade loss for a subject in the supplementary examination for a student, who has attended the summer term classes for those subjects with a minimum of 75% attendance.
  • A student who has been debarred due to attendance criteria in that subject and has not attended summer term classes with minimum of 75% attendance will not allowed to appear at the Supplementary examination.
  • A student, who misses the End semester examination for one/more theory subjects(s) for any genuine reason like medical ailments or mishap in the family, will be allowed to appear those subject(s) in the supplementary examination without reduction in grade. But this will be decided, on a case to case basis, on production of proper documents by the student, subject to the approval of the Vice Chancellor.
  • Students with C or D Grade in any of their theory papers in the current level are also allowed to appear for those papers in the Supplementary Examination subject to maximum number of 3 (three) subjects in a year for improvement of their grades without any grade reduction.
Promotion to Next Year

The office of the CoE notifies the list of students promoted to next level after the publication of the results for the Annual Supplementary Examination provided a student

  • has been a bonafide regular student at the present level and is duly registered as such in the University under permission of the Head of Academic Unit/School concerned.
  • has not been involved in breach of discipline or has not been barred due to non-completion of the course within the time limit fixed for the purpose.
  • has not been temporarily suspended for a specified period by the University and has not been denied the privileges of a regular student at the time when admission to higher levels is in progress.
  • has cleared all course items at the present level individually,
  • does not have backlog of more than 5 (five) course(s) at the current level (from where the promotion is being sought) considering both the semesters in an academic year and
  • has no backlogs at any stage below the present level from which the promotion is sought. For example, a student getting promoted from 2nd year to 3rd year level should not have any backlog course(s) item of the 1st year.
Guidelines to appear for the Backlog

Back paper examinations, if any, shall be held along with the normal End-semester examination of the similar (odd in odd and even in even).

A student who is promoted to the next year with backlogs in the previous year is permitted to clear those backlog theory subjects by appearing in the End semester examination for those subjects as back papers in the corresponding semester in which the subject is offered. However, he is required to register for those back-paper subjects in the prescribed form at the beginning of the semester but may be exempted from attending theory classes for those subjects. A student will not be allowed to register for more than five backlog subjects along with his/her regular subject items in each of the even or odd semester. Registration of the backlog subject items has to start from the lowest year onwards. Any remaining back paper(s) beyond five in any semester (even or odd) could be carried forward to be cleared in subsequent semester(s).

Further, any student who fails to clear the 1st year Program in two attempts in the form of End semester examination and Supplementary examination will be on probation for one more year (year back). On failing again in the next semester, s/he shall be terminated from the University.

Rules for Improvement in CGPA

This provision has been introduced in order to facilitate the students to obtain a Degree at the end of completion of course, where the minimum requirement of CGPA is 6.00.

  • A student, preferably without any backlog, is eligible to opt for the improvement examination in a theory paper for a maximum of 3 (three) papers in the Autumn or Spring End semester examination starting with third semester.
  • Students with a backlog of less than 3 (three) theory papers, can also appear in the improvement examination subject to a maximum of 3 (three) theory papers including the backlog papers. However, he/she has to first register for the backlog papers followed by the papers for improvement.
  • The grade improvement option is available to a student only in the immediate subsequent chance in the End semester examination.
  • If there is no improvement in the grade for any subject, the original grade will remain in force.
Guidelines for Disposal of the Answer Scripts

The Answer Scripts of any Mid Term, End Semester and Annual Examinations are to be disposed off in shredded form by the concerned School with the approval from the Controller of Examinations after 6 months (for digitized scripts) and after 2 years (for non-digitized scripts) from the date of publication of results of the concerned examination.

Hence no student or any external agency will have any claim, whatsoever, or can have access to Answer Scripts under any circumstances after this time limit.
