1. FYJC (Arts & Science): Passing is based on the aggregate of the marks scored at the first and second terminal examinations and the mid- term tests.
SYJC (Arts & Science): The first terminal examination, the mid-term tests and the preliminary examinations are compulsory.
FYBA/BSc, SYBA/BSc.: Students have to appear for both the terminal and final examinations as their performance at both these examinations is taken into consideration for passing.
· The examination shall be conducted at the end of each semester.
· A paper shall carry 100 marks. The evaluation of the performance of the students in the papers shall be on the basis of both Internal Assessment (50%) and Semester End Examination (50%). Internal Assessment shall be on the basis of class assignments, projects, presentations, group discussions, seminar attendance, field visits etc.
· The Semester End Examination shall be a written theory paper held at the end of each semester and shall be of 2 hours duration.
· The responsibility of evaluation during the first four semesters shall rest with the College/Institution on behalf of the University, wherein the students are admitted for the course. The College/Institution shall carry out the Internal Assessment for papers in Semester V and VI, while the University shall conduct the Semester End Examinations for these two semesters. The Internal Assessment marks of students appearing for semester V and VI shall be sent to the University by the respective College/Institution at least ten days before the commencement of the respective Semester End examination.
2. There will also be periodic tests and assignments in the course of each term.
3. The first and second terminal examinations, mid-term tests, tutorials, etc. will be conducted as a means for both the College and the students to evaluate progress. Moreover, these periodic exercises prepare students better for their University Examinations and furnish information both, as to whether a student has completed her course of study satisfactorily and for the Internal Assessment Certificates given by the Principal in consultation with Heads of Departments.
4. No student is allowed to absent herself from tests and examinations. Absentees make themselves liable to disciplinary action.
5. Students and their parents are asked to note that although illness or other serious circumstances may be considered valid reasons by them for absence from lectures, tests, tutorials, examinations, etc., there remains no evidence with the College of the student having satisfactory knowledge of the courses concerned. Failure to write the required number of assignments, unjustified absence from tests, tutorials, practicals, examinations, etc., seriously prejudices a student's academic record. If a student persistently continues not to conform to stated requirements, the College might refuse admission to a student for the next academic year.
6. Internal Assessment: To be able to give a student a more comprehensive view of her own capacities than that provided by the University mark-sheet, the College maintains a cumulative record of the student's performance at tests, seminars, tutorial assignments etc., throughout the year. This is entered on a card which includes information regarding her participation in co-curricular activities and lists college scholarships or prizes that she may have won.
7. Unsupervised Examinations may be held for the third year students. The students concerned opt for these after agreeing to the sanctions drawn up. The unsupervised examinations aim at creating a sense of responsibility and honesty amongst the students and are conducted on the principle of mutual trust.
Supervised Examinations will be held for all other classes.
8. The results of examinations are considered at a Staff
Meeting presided over by the Principal. Besides the examination result, the work of the whole year (class assignments, tests, etc.) is taken into account. The decisions of this meeting are final.
9. Students are expected to do all the tests and written assignments prescribed for all their subjects during the course of the year.
In addition to all that is stated above, (under Nos. 2, 4 & 5) this is necessary in order to satisfy the University requirement to provide examinations to test the progress of the students
