Scheme of Assessment

Unique methods of evaluation have been evolved to take account of certain traits which do not surface in a classroom education, like professional judgment, decision making, interdisciplinary approach, initiative, leadership, sense of responsibility, etc.  The system discards the conventional emphasis on a single final examination and numerical marks as the absolute indication of the quality of  student's performance.  Thus, at the end of the semester letter the absolute indication of the quality of student's performance.  Thus, at the end of the semester letter grades, O, S, A, B, C, P and F are awarded to the students based on the total performance of the students. These letter grades stand for quality of performance and also associated with points in a quantified hierarchy as given below:        

         O - Outstanding (10)

S - Excellent (9)

A - Very Good (8)

B - Good (7)

C - Satisfactory (6)

P - Pass (5)

R - Reappearance Required (0)


Grading System


    The student will be assigned a grade based on his/her combined performance in the final examination and the continuous assessment.  The grades indicated above carry a qualitative letter grade as well as the grade point number as follows:












Very Good












Reappearance Required



Grade Point Average


Based on the grades obtained by a student in all the subjects, a Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated as follows:


GPA= Σ (No. of Credits X Grade Point) / Σ (No. of Credits)


SGPA:    The Semester Grade Point Average at any stage is the GPA for the subjects registered in a semester


CGPA:    The Cumulative Grade Point Average at any stage is the GPA for all subjects  successfully completed up to that stage. 


  The SGPA and CGPA are rounded off to two decimal places.


Equivalent Percentage of Marks


   To get equivalent percentage of marks, multiply the CGPA by 10




CGPA Calculation


The formula for CGPA Calculation is :

#    A student is awarded I Class with Distinction if the student passes all the subjects required in the first attempt within the permitted period provided the candidate has not been prevented from going to next semester for attendance / disciplinary reasons and has more than 8.0 CGPA on a 10 point grade.

#  A student is awarded I class, if the student

           * is able to pass in all the subjects registered till pre-final semester within the stipulated period.

           * is able to pass the rest of the subjects within the permitted period by taking not more than two attempts after the stipulated period.

           * has not been prevented from going to next semester

#  All other candidates who qualify for the degree are given Second Class.

Withdrawal of Subjects


#  A student not having failed / absent in any subjects earlier is allowed to drop subjects totaling to 25 credits or 16% of the total required credits in any course whichever is higher. 

#  This will be applied to the subjects as and when the student is absent in the semester.

#  Withdrawal is allowed once in the course period.

#  The immediate next attempt will be considered as the first attempt and the internal assessment of the dropped subjects will be carried forward.

#  Subjects will not be listed in the statement of Grades.


Punishment for Malpractice


   If any student involved in any type of malpractice the following punishment will be awarded:
