Rules and Regulation of Exam
EVALUATION, STANDARD OF PASSING AND AWARD OF DEGREE
The new curriculum and examination pattern is implemented from the batches starting from July 2011
Objective of Evaluation:
The objective of evaluation is not only to measure the performance of students, but also to motivate them for better performance. Students are evaluated on the basis of class test, quizzes, class participation, home assignments, project reports, presentation, mid-semester, end-semester examinations, etc.
Method of Evaluation:
The methods of evaluation as well as weightage assigned to different types of tests are determined by the faculty within the framework of the University’s policy. The evaluation scheme will be internal as well as external examinations.
1. For each Subject, the following will be the framework for evaluation:
Mid-Semester examination : 20%
End-Semester examination (University) : 60%
(Quizzes, assignments, project, Class participation and presentation)
(Out of these five, minimum three components should be used)
1. For completing the subject, 75% of attendance in number of sessions held in each subject is necessary.
For Social Project and Comprehensive Project, the following will be the framework for evaluation:
Internal Evaluation : 50%
External Evaluation : 50%
For Social Project and Comprehensive Project, evaluation will be equally divided between internal and external evaluation. There will be a viva voce for projects for all the groups. The viva voce will be a conducted by a committee.
Social Project Course will be conducted in Semester II and Comprehensive Project will commence from Semester III and evaluation will be at end of Semester IV.
d) In the beginning of the Semester, each faculty will circulate to the students
(i) Session wise schedule of the complete course
(ii) Evaluation components such as quiz, mid-semester, etc., with weightages, keeping in view the above guidelines. Weightage given in the syllabus is for guidance only.
(iii) Each faculty of the respective subject will submit the component-wise grade to the examination incharge and then the combined internal result of all the subjects of the semester in question will be sent to the University.
(iv) The final result of each semester will be given by the university, in terms of grades and equivalent grade points, whereas in the final result of Year I and consolidated result of both the years, grades, equivalent grade points and percentage will be given in the marksheet.
3. Calculating of grade point.
(a) It is required to give a letter grade (as explained below) for every component of the course. The grade point for the course will be based on the weighted average of the grades obtained and their respective weightages.
(b) At the end of each Semester, the performance of students will be evaluated in terms of letter grades which have the following equivalent grade points
(c) Every faculty in every course will submit the letter grade and the equivalent grade point to the examination incharge.
(d) In order to give the cumulative grade point average (CGPA), the respective course grade will be multiplied by the respective credit of the course and divided by the sum of weights, i.e., weighted average is taken into account.
Suppose grade obtained in course 1 – 3.7; course 2 - 4.0; Course 3 - 1.7; course 4 – 2.7; course 5 - 3.0; Course 6 – 2.7; course 7 – 3.0. Then the CGP will be 3.7x 1 + 4.0 x 1 + 1.7 x 1 +2.7 x 1 +3.0 x 1 + 2.7 x 1 + 3.0 x 1= 20.8. This will be divided by 7 (the total sum of credits) which will give 2.97 (rounded off to two decimal accuracy) CGPA and grade obtained is B.
Suppose in any one subject, student gets the following grades in examination:
In the above case the final grade will be 0.20 x 3 + 0.60 x 3.7 + 0.20 x 4.3 = 3.68.
Therefore the grade will be A- and the grade point average will be 3.68 (see item 8 for guidance). The above grade point average will be carried forward for accumulation.
4. Passing Standard Norms
Minimum Passing norm in each subject in each semester will be Grade C, CGPA 2.0 and in aggregate, Grade C+, CGPA 2.3, for all the subjects of each semester.
If he/she has not been able to complete any course (internal component), he/she will be given “I” grade, implying incomplete. The “I” grade will have to be removed by completing the course requirements within a specified time period, allotted by the faculty concerned.
In case of backlogs i.e. less than Grade C, CGPA 2.0, student has to re-appear for University Examination.
In case of Mid-term Examination and Internal Assessment, If Student gets ‘F’ Grade in any subject offered, then, he/she has to undertake remedial examination/assignment to improve their performance, as assigned by the concerned faculty. This remedial examination/assignment should be completed, before the student appears for university examination. If this requirement is not met, ‘I’ Grade will be given to the student. The ‘I’ Grade will have to be removed by clearing remedial examination/assignment, within one month of the declaration of the result.
5.Cases of Failure
If a student fails in University examination, he/she may re-appear in the concerned paper in any subsequent examination; however, maximum permissible total number of attempts for a paper will not exceed six, during the span period.
If the criterion of passing norm in each subject, in each semester, of Grade C, CGPA 2.0, has not been met during two years of the programme, then he/she has to re-appear for the university examination as Ex-student; subject to the maximum permissible total number of attempts for a paper i.e. not exceeding six during the span period.
Promotion from I year to II year:
The promotion will be from year I to year II of MBA and not on Semester to Semester basis. To qualify for promotion to the second year, the student must clear successfully at least 80% (i.e. fail in not more than 3 subjects) after the trial for Semester I and Semester II exam of the courses offered in the first year.
Student who has passed in all the courses, but is not maintaining the CGPA of 2.3, i.e. Grade C+, in aggregate in each semester, will be eligible for promotion to the next year. However such student is required to reappear in not more than three subjects of his/her choice to get the required CGPA of 2.3, i.e. Grade C+ on an aggregate basis.
Award of the Degree :
After the successful completion of the two years in the programme, a student will be awarded the degree of Master of Business Administration (MBA).
Student is required to satisfy the following rules, for successful completion of MBA programme:
Student is required to earn a minimum CGPA of 2.3 (i.e.Grade C+) on an aggregate basis, taking into account, all the subjects offered during first and second year.
The passing standard for 2nd year students will be governed by the rules mentioned under heading “Passing Standards Norms”
