5. Evaluation
Candidates in each semester will be evaluated both by continuous assessment and end
semester University examination. The individual maximum marks allotted for continuous
assessment and University examination for each subject is as prescribed by the scheme of
study.
2
5.1 Continuous Assessment (C.A)
The marks awarded for the continuous assessment will be on the basis of the day-to-day
work, periodic tests (minimum two in a semester) and assignments (minimum of three – one
each from each module). The faculty member concerned will do the continuous assessment
for each semester. The C.A. marks for the individual subjects shall be computed by giving
weight age to the following parameters.
Subject Attendance Tests Assignments/
Class Work
Theory Subjects 20% 50% 30%
Drawing 20% 40% 40%
Practical 20% 40% 40%
Project Work Work Assessed by Guide – 50%
Assessed by a three member committee out of which one member
is the guide – 50%
The C.A. marks for the attendance (20%) for each theory, practical and drawing shall be
awarded in full only if the candidate has secured 90% attendance or above in the subject.
Proportionate reduction shall be made in the case of subjects in which he/she gets below 90%
of the attendance for a subject. The CA marks obtained by the student for all subjects in a
semester is to be published at least 5 days before the commencement of the University
examinations. Anomalies if any may be scrutinized by the department committee and the
final CA marks are forwarded to the university within the stipulated time.
5.2. End Semester University Examinations
i) There will be University examinations at the end of the first academic year and at the
end of every semester from third semester onwards in subjects as prescribed under
the respective scheme of examinations. Semester classes shall be completed at least
10 working days before the commencement of the University examination.
ii) The examination will be held twice in an year – April/May session (for even
semester) and October/November session (for odd semester). The combined 1st and
2nd semester is reckoned as equivalent to an even semester for the purpose of conduct
of examination and the University examination will be held during April/May.
However VII and VIII Semester examination will be conducted in both the sessions.
This schedule will not be changed
iii) A student will be permitted to appear for the university examination only if he/she
satisfies the following requirements
a. He/she must secure not less than 75% attendance in the total number of working
periods during the first year and in each semester thereafter and shall be
physically present for a minimum of 60% of the total working periods. In
addition, he/she also shall be physically present in at least 50% of total working
periods for each subject
b. He must earn a progress certificate from the head of the institution of having
satisfactorily completed the course of study in the semester as prescribed by these
regulations
3
c. It shall be open to the Vice-Chancellor to grant condonation of shortage of
attendance on the recommendation of the head of the institution in accordance
with the following norms
d. The attendance shall not be less than 60% of the total working periods
e. He/she shall be physically present for a minimum of 50% of the total working
periods
f. The shortage shall not be condoned more than twice during the entire course
g. The condonation shall be granted subject to the rules and procedures prescribed
by the university from time to time.
h. The condonation for combined 1st and 2nd semesters will be reckoned as a single
condonation for attendance purposes.
iv) A student who is not permitted to appear for the University examinations for a
particular semester due to the shortage of attendance and not permitted by the
authorities for condonation of shortage of attendance shall repeat the semester when
it is offered again. This provision is allowed only once for a semester.
v) The university will conduct examinations for all subjects (Theory, Drawing &
Practical)
vi) The scheme of valuation will be decided by the chief examiner for theory / drawing
subjects
vii) For practical examinations, the examiners together will decide the marks to be
awarded. The student shall produce the certified record of the work done in the
laboratory during the examination. The evaluation of the candidate should be as per
the guidelines given in the syllabus for the practical subject.
6. Letter Grades
For each subject in a semester, based on the total marks obtained by the student in the
University examination and Continuous assessment put together a letter grade (S,A+, A, B+,
B, C+, C, D, E and F) will be awarded. All letter grades except ‘F’ will be awarded if the
marks for the University examination is 40 % or above and the total mark (C.A marks +
University Exam mark) is 50 % or above. No absolute mark will be indicated in the grade
card. Letter grade corresponding to total marks (C.A marks+ University Exam mark) and the
corresponding grade point in a ten-point scale is described below.
% of Total marks Letter Grade Point Remarks
Grade (G.P)
(C.A marks + University Exam mark)
90 % and above S 10 Excellent
85 % and above but less than 90% A+ 9

∑ Credit × GP obtained for the subject
GPA =
∑ credit for subject
Cumulative Grade point Average (CGPA) is the average grade points obtained by the
students till the end of any particular semester. CGPA is calculated in a 10-point scale as
shown below.
