  • The students may opt for additional courses from foundation courses offered by the university depending upon the availability during a particular semester.
  • Summer internship and major research project are an essential component in each PG Program.

Type of Courses

Courses in a program of study are classified into four categories i.e. Core, Electives, Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC) and Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC).

  1. Core Courses

These are the courses which are to be compulsorily studied by a student as a core requirement to complete the degree in a program of study. They are compulsory courses generally given in the beginning semester(s) to build up basic knowledge in any academic program. The weightage for this category is suggested to be 15-20 percent of the total degree credit requirements.

  1. Elective Courses

 Elective course is a course which can be chosen from a pool of papers. It may be

  1. Supportive to the discipline of study
  2. Providing an expanded scope
  3. Enabling an exposure to some other discipline/domain
  4. Nurturing students proficiency/skills

They are the depth courses designed to achieve any/all of the above objectives in any degree program. They help build expertise and skills in the degree domain area.
Further, elective courses may be divided into two categories i.e. Generic Centric/Open Elective and Discipline Centric/Specific Elective. ‘Generic Elective’ refers to those courses which add generic proficiency to the students and may be chosen from unrelated discipline. ‘Discipline Centric’ adds to subject expertise and are offered under the main discipline/ subject of study.

The weightage for electives in degree program is suggested to be 60 percent.

  1. Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses

AECC are based upon the content that leads to knowledge enhancement. For example, English Communication, Environment Studies, Disaster Management, Computer Application, Community Service, etc.

  1. Skill Enhancement Courses

SEC courses provide value based and/or skill based knowledge and may have content both Theory and Lab/Training/Field Work. The main purpose of these courses is to provide students life skills and hands on mode so as to improve their employability.

The weightage for category 3 & 4 above is suggested to be 20-25 percent of the total credits.  However, keeping in view the nature and specific requirements of any degree program there may be some variations in the relative weightage with in the categories as suggested above.

The Grading System

  1. The grading system takes into account the performance of a student in examinations conducted at various stages i.e. classroom tests, mid-term and end-term examination. The evaluation of different components of a course is done in terms of marks first. The aggregate marks (internal + external) obtained in a course are taken as notional marks. The notional marks are multiplied by credits assigned to the course and divided by 10 to obtain Grade Point (GP).
  2. The sum of Grade Point of all the courses in a particular semester divided by the total number of credits in that semester determines the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA.) The SGPA is calculated only on passing of all courses of a semester.
  3. The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is determined on the basis of sum of GP of all courses up to that semester divided by the number of total credits up to that semester.
  4. The CGPA will be calculated only on passing of all papers of the preceding semester (s).

The GP, SGPA and CGPA will be calculated by the following formula: 
i)GP= (Notional Marks X No. of credits of course)/10 
ii)SGPA= (Sum of GP of all Course) / (Total Number of Credits in Semester) 
iii)CGPA= (Sum of GP up to that Semester) / (Total Number of Credits up to that Semester)

  1. The overall percentage of marks obtained is determined by multiplying the SGPA or CGPA, as the case may be, by 10.
  2. Two methods i.e. Relative Grading and Absolute Grading are in vogue for awarding grades in a course. The relative grading is based on the distribution (usually normal distribution) of marks obtained by all the students of the course and grades are awarded based on a cut-off marks or percentile. Under absolute grading, the marks are converted into grades based on pre-determined class intervals. The University follows absolute grading system on 10 point scale in all the courses.
  3. The Letter Grades are determined on the basis of overall percentage of marks as per the following table:





























A student obtaining Grade F shall be considered failed and will be required to reappear in the examination.
For non credit courses Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory shall be indicated instead of the letter grade and this will not be counted for the computation of SGPA/CGPA.

8.The academic performance of a candidate will be determined on the basis of Letter Grades and will be displayed in final transcript, as under:

Letter Grade

Grade Point

O (Outstanding)




A(Very Good)




B(Above Average)




P (Pass)




Ab (Absent)


The successful candidates shall be classified into divisions on the basis of marks obtained by them and the division will be indicated in their degree as given under:-

First Division with distinction

If marks are 75% or more.

First Division

If marks are 60% or more and less than 75%.

Second Division

If marks are 50% or more and less than 60%


If marks are 40% or more and less than 50%


Continuous Evaluation Process

Each course has a certain number of credits, which reflects its weightage. Credit is a unit by which course work is measured. It determines the number of hours of instructions required per week Credits of a course are determined as under:-

For all lecture/tutorial work, one lecture (one hour duration) per week per semester constitutes one credit. For practical/field work two hours of work per week for semester is one credit. The Program structure of degree will clearly indicate the credits assigned to different courses.

Every candidate shall be examined in the course (s) as laid down in the syllabus approved by the Academic Council from time to time. The credits for each paper and the contact hours per week will be specified in the Program scheme.

Each paper will have Maximum Marks 100 in the ratio of 70% end-term and 30% internal continuous evaluation process, irrespective of the credits assigned to it. The marks obtained by a student out of 100 will be treated as notional marks. These notional marks (marks obtained) will be multiplied by the Credits to get grade point for each course.

The grade awarded to a student in any particular course will be based on performance of the student in Mid-Term, attendance and co-curricular activities (assignment, viva-voce, lab. work, seminar, workshop, presentations, group discussions, quiz, etc.) and external End Semester examination conducted at the end of semester.

The details of evaluation process for internal and external assessment are given in University Regulations of Examination and Evaluation, available on the Website also

The End Semester examination for the Odd semesters shall ordinarily be held in the month of December and for the Even semesters in the month of May, on such dates as may be scheduled by the University. It will be an external examination, to be conducted by the Examination Branch of the University
