Regulations for Under Graduate Programmes under Choice based Course-credit-Semester System and Grading,2017(CBCS)
The internal to external assessment ratio shall be 1:4.
Both internal and external marks are to be rounded to the next integer.
All papers (theory & practical), grades are given on a 7-point scale based on the total percentage of marks, (ISA+ESA) as given below:-
|Percentage of Marks||Grade||Grade Point|
|95 and above||S Outstanding||10|
|85 to below 95||A+ Excellent||9|
|75 to below 85||A Very Good||8|
|65 to below 75||B+ Good||7|
|55 to below 65||B Above Average||6|
|45 to below 55||C Satisfactory||5|
|35 to below 45||D Pass||4|
|Below 35||F Failure||0|
CREDIT POINT AND CREDIT POINT AVERAGE Credit Point (CP) of a paper is calculated using the formula:- CP = C × GP, where C is the Credit and GP is the Grade point
Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) of a Semester is calculated using the formula:-
SGPA = TCP/TC, where TCP is the Total Credit Point of that semester.
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated using the formula:-
CGPA = TCP/TC, where TCP is the Total Credit Point of that programme.
Grade Point Average (GPA) of different category of courses viz. Common Course I, Common Course II, Complementary Course I, Complementary Course II, Vocational course, Core Course is calculated using the formula:-
GPA = TCP/TC, where TCP is the Total Credit Point of a category of course. TC is the total credit of that category of course
Grades for the different courses, semesters and overall programme are given based on the corresponding CPA as shown below:
|9.5 and above||S Outstanding|
|8.5 to below 9.5||A+ Excellent|
|7.5 to below 8.5||A Very Good|
|6.5 to below 7.5||B+ Good|
|5.5 to below 6.5||B Above Average|
|4.5 to below 5.5||C Satisfactory|
|3.5 to below 4.5||D Pass|
|Below 3.5||F Failure|
The external theory examination of all semesters shall be conducted by the University at the end of each semester. Internal evaluation is to be done by continuous assessment. For all courses without practical total marks of external examination is 80 and total marks of internal evaluation is 20. Marks distribution for external and internal assessments and the components for internal evaluation with their marks are shown below:
|Components of Internal Evaluation of theory||Marks|
|Test papers (2×5=10)||10|
For all courses with practical
a) Marks of external Examination : 60
|Components of Internal Evaluation||Marks|
|Test papers (2 x 4)||8|
(c) For practical examinations total marks for external evaluation is 40 for internal evaluation is 10
|Components Internal evaluation of Practical||Marks|
|Test paper (1 x 4)||4|
*Marks awarded for Record should be related to number of experiments recorded and duly signed by the teacher concerned in charge.
All three components of internal assessments are mandatory.
|Components of External Evaluation of Project||Marks|
*Marks for dissertation may include study tour report if proposed in the syllabus.
|Components of internal Evaluation of Project||Marks|
|% of attendance||Marks|
|90 and above||5|
|85 – 89||4|
(Decimals are to be rounded to the next higher whole number)
Assignments are to be done from 1st to 4th Semesters. At least one assignment should be done in each semester for all courses.
A student shall present a seminar in the 5th semester for each paper and appear for
viva-voce in the 6th semester for each course.
Note: A separate minimum of 30% marks each for internal and external (for both theory and practical) and aggregate minimum of 35% are required for a pass for a paper. For a pass in a programme, a separate minimum of Grade D is required for all the individual papers. If a candidate secures F Grade for any one of the paper offered in a Semester/Programme only F grade will be awarded for that Semester/Programme until he/she improves this to D GRADE or above within the permitted period.

EVALUATION AND GRADING
Proper guidelines shall be prepared by the BOS for evaluating the assignment, seminar, practical, project and comprehensive viva- voce within the framework of the regulation.
|iii.||Best Two Test papers||2(1 each)|
(Grades of best two test papers shall be considered. For test papers all questions shall be set in such a way that the answers can be awarded A+,A,B,C,D,E grade.)
Evaluation is based on the pattern of question specified in 12.16.5
|Lab involvement and Record||1|
(The components and the weightage of the components of the practical (Internal) can be modified by the concerned BOS without changing the total weightage 5.)
|Written / Lab test||7|
|Lab involvement and Record||3|
(The components and the weightage of the of the practical(External) can be modified by the concerned BOS without changing the total weightage 15.)
e) For Project(CE)(Internal)
|Relevance of the topic and analysis||2|
|Project content and presentation||2|
(The comRonents and the weightage of the components of the project(Internal) can be modified by the concerned BOS without changing the total weightage 5.)

Direct Grading System.
Direct Grading System based on a 6— point scale is used to evaluate the Internal and External examinations taken by the students for various courses of study.
|A+||5||4.50 to 5.00|
|A||4||4.00 to 4.49|
|B||3||3.00 to 3.99|
|C||2||2.00 to 2.99|
|D||1||0.01 to 1.99|
Students are graded based on their performance (GPA/SGPA/CGPA) at the examination on a 7-point scale as detailed below.
|4.50 to 5.00||A+||Outstanding|
|4.00 to 4.49||A||Excellent|
|3.50 to 3.99||B+||Very good|
|3.00 to 3.49||B||Good(Average)|
|2.50 to 2.99||C+||Fair|
|2.00 to 2.49||C||Marginal(pass)|
|up to 1.99||D||Deficient(Fail)|
No separate minimum is required for internal evaluation for a pass, but a minimum C grade is required for a pass in an external evaluation. However, a minimum C grade is required for pass in a course.A student who fails to secure a minimum grade for a pass in a course will be permitted to write the examination along with the next batch.
Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) Calculations. The SGPA is the ratio of sum of the credit points of all courses taken by a student in the semester to the total credit for that semester. After the successful completion of a semester, Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) of a student in that semester is calculated using the formula given below.
Where ’S,’ is the semester , ‘G, ‘ is the grade point scored by the student in the ith course ‘c,’ is the credit of the ith course.
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)of a Programme is calculated using the formula:
Semester Grade Point Average -SGPA (Sj) – Z(Ci X Gi) / Z Ci
(SGPA= Total credit Points awarded in a semester / Total credits of the semester)
Where ‘C, ‘ is the credits for the • th semester ‘S,’ is the SGPA for the i” semester. The SGPA and CGPA shall be rounded off to 2 decimal points .
For the successful completion of semester, a student shall pass all courses and score a minimum SGPA of 2.0.However, a student is permitted to move to the next semester irrespective of her/his SGPA.
