FAQs for Current Students

Examinations, Evaluation and Grading

 What does Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) involve?

The Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) component carries a maximum of 30% weightage. For 3-credit and 4-credit courses, four CCE parameters will be assessed. For a 2 credit course, it will be based on only two CCE parameters. The CCE parameters are evaluated throughout the entire duration of a semester or trimester.

 Is there any incentive for students who have good attendance percentage?

Yes. A maximum of 3 marks will be awarded to those students who have an excellent attendance track record. The 3 additional incentive marks will be added to the students’ CCE component, subject to a maximum CCE marks of that particular course. For this, however, a student must have an aggregate attendance of 90% and above, and he/she should have an attendance of 95% and above in a particular course in order to receive the award for that course.

 How are the marks tabulated for the Term End Examinations (TEE)?

For undergraduate students, the TEE will be conducted at the end of each semester, and it will cover the entire syllabus. The examination will be for 100 marks, and the total marks obtained (out of 100) will be rescaled to a 50-mark total.

For postgraduate students, TEE will be conducted at end of each trimester. The exam will cover the entire syllabus. For a 3 or 4-credit course, the examination will be for 100 marks, and the total marks obtained (out of 100) will be rescaled to a 50-mark total. For a 2-credit course, the examination will be conducted for 50 marks, and the total marks obtained will be rescaled to a 25-mark total.

 What is a make-up exam?

Make-up examination is an option given to those students who have appeared for the TEE, yet failed in one or more courses in a semester. This is a second opportunity given to those students so that they may clear the final exam without having to take the supplementary examination.

 When are the supplementary examinations conducted?

For UG programmes, supplementary examinations will be conducted at the end of each semester for those students who have failed in previous semester(s). These supplementary exams will be held at the same time as the regular examinations.

For PG programmes, supplementary examinations for all preceding trimester courses will be conducted along with the 3rd and 6th trimester regulation examination.
