iii.Course: Course usually referred to as ‘papers’, is a component of programmes. Allcourses need not carry the same weight. The course should define learning objectivesand learning outcomes. A course may be designed toincludelectures/tutorials/laboratorywork/fieldwork / outreachactivities/projectwork/seminars/termpapers/assignments/presentations/self-study, etc. or a combination of some of these.
iv.Credit Based Semester System (CBSS): Under the CBSS, the requirement for awarding Degrees or diplomas or certificates is prescribed in terms of number ofcredits to be completed by the students.
vii. Grade Point: It is a numerical grade allotted to each letter grade.
vii. Credit Point: It is the product of grade points and the number of credits to be completed by the students.
viii. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA): It is a measure of performance of astudent in a semester. It is the ratio oftotal credit points secured by a student invarious courses of a semester and the course credits taken during that semester. Itshall be expressed up to two decimal points.
xii.Grade Sheet: The grade sheet issued at the end of each semester shall include the total marks obtained in each paper / module as well as the SGPA, the total marks obtained in that semester and the credit earned in the semester concerned. The final grade sheet, on completion of six semesters, shall include the SGPA of six semesters, CGPA, Letter Grade, the marks obtainedand the total Credits earned.
Under the design of”Choice Based Credit System(CBCS)” the curriculum has been moulded intothree tier structure with following types of courses to be offered:
|Discipline Specific Elective[DSE]||2||2||4|
|Generic Elective [GE]||1||1||1||1||4|
|Skill Enhancement Elective (SEC)||1||1||2|
|Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses(AECC)||1||1||2|
|Total Number of Courses with marks|
|Course Type||Credit for Courses with Theory and Practical||Credit for Courses with Theory and Tutorial||Total Papers/Courses||Total Credit|
|Discipline Specific Elective[DSE]||4||2||5||1||4||24|
|Skill Enhancement Elective (SEC)||2||0||2||0||2||4|
|Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses(AECC)||2||0||2||0||2||4|
a.An undergraduate Degree with Honours in Humanities /Science shall be awarded if a studentcompletes 14 core courses/papers in that discipline, 2 Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses(AECC), 2 Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC), 4 courses/papers from a list of Discipline Specific Elective(DSE) and 4 courses/papers from a list of Generic Elective(GE) papers, respectively.
A candidate pursuing a regular course of study for three-year semester-wise degree course shall have to clear courses of all semesters in all respects within a span of five years from the year of admission to the particular course and combinations, failing which enrolment of the candidate shall stand cancelled.
For the purpose of computation of credits/work-load mechanism equivalent to the following shall be adopted
iii. Practical 1 credit = 2 Hours Practical [1 practical period of two hours duration perweek]
Theory (80) + Internal Assessment (20) [internal exam (15) + attendance (5)] = Total 100
Note: Internal exam will be based on theory.
Class attendance 95% and above = 5 marks
Class attendance 90% – below 95% = 4 marks
Class attendance 80% – below 90% = 3 marks
Class attendance 70% – below 80% =2 marks
Class attendance less than 70% = 0 marks.Students with less than 70% attendance will be barred from appearing in the semester exam in the respective course/paper.
|Grade||Marks Equivalents*||Grade Point|
|O||91% and above||10|
|A+||81% – 90%||9|
|A||71% – 80%||8|
|B+||61% – 70%||7|
|B||51% – 60%||6|
|C+||41% – 50%||5|
|C||Passed with 40%||4|
**Percentage will be rounded off to integer
The following procedure to compute the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) will be followed.
|O||9.5 and above||Outstanding|
|A+||8.5 – 9.49||Excellent|
|A||7.5 – 8.49||Very Good|
|B+||6.5 – 7.49||Good|
|B||5.5 – 6.49||Average|
|C+||4.5 – 5.49||Fair|
|C||4.0 – 4.49||Satisfactory|
