Information regarding different aspects of the Examinations are detailed below:

1. Continuous Internal Assesment (CIA)
The results of the candidates are based on CIA done at their departments and valuation of the end semester exam papers at the centralized valuation camp.

The Continuous Internal Assessment component consists of 40% for the assignments and course related work, 40% for tests and 20% for tests of paper-related skills to be decided by the course teacher (total marks will be calculated as follows: 25 marks for CIA and 75 marks for semester end examination)

The marks earned in the CIA once will be carried forward to other semesters too, if the student were to write the same paper again as arrears having failed or been absent in the previous attempt. The marks of the CIA are released to the students by the last working day of each semester.

2. Semester End Examinations
Controller’s office arranges and conducts the semester end examinations and declares the results of candidates.

Odd semester examinations are conducted in November and that of even semester examination in April-May. Practical examination/Project Viva is also held along with the semester end examinations.

Examination Cell seeks the help of a Chief Superintendent of Exams and Valuation Camp coordinator each year to assist the Examination Cell in the conduct of the exams and valuation of the papers every year. While one department takes charge of conducting the examinations (with HOD of that department as Chief Superintendent), another department takes charge of
valuation camp (with HOD of that department as Camp Co-coordinator) in each academic year.

Chief Superintendent of exams manages the conduct of semester end examinations. Valuation of the answer scripts are undertaken at the central valuation camp headed by a Camp Officer..

Valuation of answer scripts is done centrally at the camp. Internal and external examiners valuate answer scripts for both
undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
