The on-line registration requests for any ‘current semester’ shall be completed before the commencement of SEEs (Semester End Examinations) of the ‘preceding semester’.

4.3 A student can apply for on-line registration, only after obtaining the ‘written approval’ from faculty advisor / counselor, which should be submitted to the college academic section through the Head of the Department. A copy of it shall be retained with Head of the Department, faculty advisor / counselor and the student.

4.4 A student may be permitted to register for the subjects / courses of choice with a total of 24 credits per semester (minimum of 20 credits and maximum of 28 credits per semester and permitted deviation of ± 17%), based on progress and SGPA / CGPA, and completion of the ‘pre-requisites’ as indicated for various subjects / courses, in the department course structure and syllabus contents. However, a minimum of 20 credits per semester must be registered to ensure the ‘studentship’ in any semester.

4.5 Choice for ‘additional subjects / courses’ to reach the maximum permissible limit of 28 credits (above the typical 24 credit norm) must be clearly indicated, which needs the specific approval and signature of the faculty advisor / counselor.

4.6 If the student submits ambiguous choices or multiple options or erroneous entries during on-line registration for the subject(s) / course(s) under a given / specified course group / category as listed in the course structure, only the first mentioned subject / course in that category will be taken into consideration.

4.7 Subject / course options exercised through on-line registration are final and cannot be changed or inter-changed; further, alternate choices also will not be considered. However, if the subject / course that has already been listed for registration by the Head of the Department in a semester could not be offered due to any unforeseen or unexpected reasons, then the student shall be allowed to have alternate choice either for a new subject (subject to offering of such a subject), or for another existing subject (subject to availability of seats). Such alternate arrangements will be made by the head of the department, with due notification and time-framed schedule, within the first week after the commencement of class-work for that semester.

4.8 Dropping of subjects / courses may be permitted, only after obtaining prior approval from the faculty advisor / counselor (subject to retaining a minimum of 20 credits), ‘within a period of 15 days’ from the beginning of the current semester.

4.9 Open electives: students are to choose one open elective (OE-I) during III year I semester, one (OE-II) during III year II semester, and one (OE-III) in IV year II semester, from the list of open electives given. However, student cannot opt for an open elective subject offered by their own (parent) department, if it is already listed under any category of the subjects offered by parent department in any semester.

4.10 Professional electives: students are to choose professional elective (PE-I) during III year semester, Professional electives II, III, and IV (PE-II, III and IV) during IV year I semester, Professional electives V, and VI (PE-V and VI) in IV year II semester, from the list of professional electives given. However, students may opt for professional elective subjects offered in the related area.

 

5.0 Subjects / courses to be offered

5.1 A typical section (or class) strength for each semester shall be 60.

5.2 A subject / course may be offered to the students, only if a minimum of 20 students (1 / 3 of the section strength) opt for it. The maximum strength of a section is limited to 80 (60 + 1 / 3 of the section strength).

5.3 More than one teacher may offer the same subject (lab / practical may be included with the corresponding theory subject in the same semester) in any semester. However, selection of choice for students will be based on - ‘first come first serve basis and CGPA criterion’ (i.e. the first focus shall be on early on-line entry from the student for registration in that semester, and the second focus, if needed, will be on CGPA of the student).

5.4 If more entries for registration of a subject come into picture, then the Head of Department concerned shall decide, whether or not to offer such a subject / course for two (or multiple) sections.

5.5 In case of options coming from students of other departments / branches / disciplines (not considering open electives), first priority shall be given to the student of the ‘parent department’.

 

6.0 Attendance requirements:

6.1 A student shall be eligible to appear for the semester end examinations, if student acquires a minimum of 75% of attendance in aggregate of all the subjects / courses (excluding attendance in mandatory / non-credit courses, Environmental Science, Gender Sensitization Lab, NCC / NSO and NSS) for that semester.

6.2 Condoning of shortage of attendance in aggregate up to 10% (65% and above, and below 75%) in each semester may be granted by the college academic committee on genuine and valid grounds, based on the student’s representation with supporting evidence.

8.0 Evaluation - Distribution and Weightage of marks

8.1 The performance of a student in every subject / course (including practicals and major project) will be evaluated for 100 marks each, with 25 marks allotted for CIE (Continuous Internal Evaluation) and 75 marks for SEE (Semester End-Examination).

8.2 For theory subjects, during a semester, there shall be two mid-term examinations. Each mid-term examination consists of one objective paper, one essay paper and one assignment. The objective paper and the essay paper shall be for 10 marks each with a total duration of 1 hour 20 minutes (20 minutes for objective and 60 minutes for essay paper). The objective paper is set with 20 bits of multiple choice, fill-in the blanks and matching type of questions for a total of 10 marks. The essay paper shall contain 4 full questions out of which, the student has to answer 2 questions, each carrying 5 marks. While the first mid-term examination shall be conducted on 50% of the syllabus, the second mid-term examination shall be conducted on the remaining 50% of the syllabus. Five marks are allocated for assignments (as specified by the subject teacher concerned). The first assignment should be submitted before the conduct of the first mid-examination, and the second assignment should be submitted before the conduct of the second mid-examination. The total marks secured by the student in each mid-term examination are evaluated for 25 marks, and the average of the two mid-term examinations shall be taken as the final marks secured by each student in internals / sessionals. If any student is absent from any subject of a mid-term examination, an on-line test will be conducted for him by the university. The details of the question paper pattern are as follows,

  • The end semester examinations will be conducted for 75 marks consisting of two parts viz. i) Part- A for 25 marks, ii) Part - B for 50 marks.

  • Part-A is compulsory question which consists of ten sub-questions. The first five sub-questions are from each unit and carry 2 marks each. The next five sub-questions are one from each unit and carry 3 marks each.

  • Part-B consists of five questions (numbered from 2 to 6) carrying 10 marks each. Each of these questions is from one unit and may contain sub-questions. For each question there will be an “either” “or” choice, which means that there will be two questions from each unit and the student should answer either of the two questions.

8.3 For practical subjects there shall be a continuous internal evaluation during the semester for 25 sessional marks and 75 semester end examination marks. Out of the 25 marks for internal evaluation, day-to-day work in the laboratory shall be evaluated for 15 marks and internal practical examination shall be evaluated for 10 marks conducted by the laboratory teacher concerned. The semester end examination shall be conducted with an external examiner and the laboratory teacher. The external examiner shall be appointed from the clusters of colleges which are decided by the examination branch of the university.

8.4 For the subject having design and / or drawing, (such as engineering graphics, engineering drawing, machine drawing) and estimation, the distribution shall be 25 marks for continuous internal evaluation (15 marks for day-to-day work and 10 marks for internal tests) and 75 marks for semester end examination. There shall be two internal tests in a semester and the average of the two shall be considered for the award of marks for internal tests.

8.5 There shall be an industry-oriented mini-project, in collaboration with an industry of their specialization. Students will register for this immediately after III year II semester examinations and pursue it during summer vacation. The industry oriented mini-project shall be submitted in a report form and presented before the committee in IV year I semester. It shall be evaluated for 100 marks. The committee consists of an external examiner, Head of the Department, supervisor of the mini-project and a senior faculty member of the department. There shall be no internal marks for industry-oriented mini-project.

8.6 There shall be a seminar presentation in IV year I semester. For the seminar, the student shall collect the information on a specialized topic and prepare a technical report, showing his understanding of the topic and submit it to the department. It shall be evaluated by the departmental committee consisting of Head of the Department, seminar supervisor and a senior faculty member. The seminar report shall be evaluated for 100 marks. There shall be no semester end examination for the seminar.

8.7 Out of a total of 100 marks for the project work, 25 marks shall be allotted for internal evaluation and 75 marks for the end semester examination (viva voce). The end semester examination of the project work shall be conducted by the same committee as appointed for the industry-oriented mini-project. In addition, the project supervisor shall also be included in the committee. The topics for industry oriented mini project, seminar and project work shall be different from one another. The evaluation of project work shall be made at the end of IV year II semester. The internal evaluation shall be on the basis of two seminars given by each student on the topic of project work.

8.8 The laboratory marks and the sessional marks awarded by the college are subject to scrutiny and scaling by the university wherever necessary. In such cases, the sessional and laboratory marks awarded by the college will be referred to a committee. The committee will arrive at a scaling factor and the marks will be scaled accordingly. The recommendations of the committee are final and binding. The laboratory records and internal test papers shall be preserved in the respective institutions as per the university rules and produced before the committees of the university as and when asked for.

8.9 For mandatory / non-credit courses like Environmental Science, Professional Ethics and gender sensitization lab, a student has to secure 40 marks out of 100 marks (i.e. 40% of the marks allotted) in the CIE (continuous internal evaluation) for passing the subject / course.

8.10 For Environmental Science, Gender Sensitization lab, NCC / NSO and NSS, a ‘satisfactory certificate’ shall be issued to the student from the authorities concerned, only after securing 65% attendance in such a course. No marks or letter grade shall be allotted for these activities.

 

9.0 Grading procedure

9.1 Marks will be awarded to indicate the performance of student in each theory subject, labaratory / practicals, seminar, industry oriented mini project, project work. Based on the percentage of marks obtained (Continuous Internal Evaluation plus Semester End Examination, both taken together) as specified in item 8 above, a corresponding letter grade shall be given.

9.2 As a measure of the performance of student, a 10-point absolute grading system using the following letter grades (as per UGC / AICTE guidelines) and corresponding percentage of marks shall be followed:




% of Marks Secured in a Subject / Course

Letter Grade (UGC Guidelines)

9.3 A student obtaining ‘F’ grade in any subject shall be deemed to have ‘failed’ and is required to reappear as a ‘supplementary student’ in the semester end examination, as and when offered. In such cases, internal marks in those subjects will remain the same as those obtained earlier.

9.4 A student who has not appeared for examination in any subject, ‘Ab’ grade will be allocated in that subject, and student shall be considered ‘failed’. Student will be required to reappear as a ‘supplementary student’ in the semester end examination, as and when offered.

9.5 A letter grade does not indicate any specific percentage of marks secured by the student, but it indicates only the range of percentage of marks.

9.6 A student earns grade point (GP) in each subject / course, on the basis of the letter grade secured in that subject / course. The corresponding ‘credit points’ (CP) are computed by multiplying the grade point with credits for that particular subject / course.

Credit points (CP) = grade point (GP) x credits …. For a course

9.7 The student passes the subject / course only when GP 5 (‘C’ grade or above)

9.8 The semester grade point average (SGPA) is calculated by dividing the sum of credit points ( CP) secured from all subjects / courses registered in a semester, by the total number of credits registered during that semester. SGPA is rounded off to two decimal places. SGPA is thus computed as

SGPA = { ∑Ni=1 Ci Gi} / { ∑Ni=1 Ci } …. For each semester,

 

where ‘i’ is the subject indicator index (takes into account all subjects in a semester), ‘N’ is the no. of subjects ‘registered’ for the semester (as specifically required and listed under the course structure of the parent department), C is the no. of credits allotted to the ith subject, and G represents the grade points (GP) corresponding to the letter grade awarded for that ith subject.

9.9 The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is a measure of the overall cumulative performance of a student in all semesters considered for registration. The CGPA is the ratio of the total credit points secured by a student in all registered courses in all semesters, and the total number of credits registered in all the semesters. CGPA is rounded off to two decimal places. CGPA is thus computed from the I year II semester onwards at the end of each semester as per the formula

CGPA = { ∑Mj=1 Cj Gj} / { ∑Mj=1 Cj } … for all S semesters registered

(i.e., up to and inclusive of S semesters, S 2),

where ‘M’ is the total no. of subjects (as specifically required and listed under the course structure of the parent department) the student has ‘registered’ i.e., from the 1st semester onwards up to and inclusive of the 8th semester, ‘j’ is the subject indicator index (takes into account all subjects from 1 to 8 semesters), C is the no. of credits allotted to the jth subject, and G represents the grade points (GP) corresponding to the letter grade awarded for that jth subject. After registration and completion of I year I semester, the SGPA of that semester itself may be taken as the CGPA, as there are no cumulative effects.

10.0 Passing standards

10.1 A student shall be declared successful or ‘passed’ in a semester, if student secures a GP ≥ 5 (‘C’ grade or above) in every subject / course in that semester (i.e. when student gets an SGPA 5.00 at the end of that particular semester); and a student shall be declared successful or ‘passed’ in the entire under graduate programme, only when gets a CGPA 5.00 for the award of the degree as required.

10.2 A student shall be declared successful or ‘passed’ in any non-credit subject / course, if student secures a ‘satisfactory participation certificate’ for that mandatory course.

10.3 After the completion of each semester, a grade card or grade sheet (or transcript) shall be issued to all the registered students of that semester, indicating the letter grades and credits earned. It will show the details of the courses registered (course code, title, no. of credits, and grade earned etc.), credits earned, SGPA, and CGPA.

 

11.0 Declaration of results

11.1 Computation of SGPA and CGPA are done using the procedure listed in 9.6 to 9.9.
