Assessment Pattern:

The evaluation is based on credit points allocated to subjects which are either 3 credit or 2 credit courses and 1 credit courses with a 3 credit Summer Internship Program (SIP). Marks are allocated on the basis of theoretical as well as practical subject knowledge. For a full credit subject 60 marks are allocated for final written examination and 40 marks are allocated on the basis of continuous internal evaluation of the performance of the student in the subject throughout the semester, which comprise case studies, presentation, field works, objectives tests and written assessments, etc. For a half credit subject internal evaluation of 50 marks is based on case studies, presentation, field works, objectives tests etc. A judicious mix of internal continuous evaluation and external assessment has been adopted to ensure that students get a consistent and fair assessment for their performance in a subject.
