Evaluation and Examination
Jan 01, 1970
All the programs are intensive professional programs. These programs demand a very high level of sincerety and commitment from students. Students are required to attend regularly all classes, seminars, practicum, and presentations as required by the course. Students failing to attend 80% of classes shall not be allowed to appear in the semester-end examinations.
The performance of students will be evaluated through ongoing in-semester evaluations and semester-end examinations. The in-semester (internal) evaluation shall generally have a total weight of 50 percent in course work related subjects and 100 percent in the case of seminars and practicum related subjects. The concerned faculty shall be responsible for the continuous in-semester evaluations. The in-semester evaluation shall be based on a student’s performance in class presentations, case analysis, individual and group assignments, class tests and others as required by the course.
A student must secure a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or Grade B in a course in order to be eligible to appear in the semester-end examination of that course. The in-semester evaluations will be based on the following components:
