For all theory and practical courses the continuous assessment shall be for a maximum of 20 marks (consisting of 15 marks for tests/experiments and 5 marks for attendance). The above continuous assessment shall be awarded as per the procedure given below:
- Theory Courses
Three tests each carrying 100 marks shall be conducted during the semester by the Department / College concerned. The total marks obtained in all tests put together out of 300, shall be proportionately reduced for 15 marks and rounded to the nearest integer (This also implies equal weightage to all the three tests).
- Practical Courses
Every practical exercise / experiment shall be evaluated based on the exercise / experiment prescribed as per the syllabi and the records of work done maintained. There shall be at least one test during the semester. The criteria for arriving at the internal assessment marks (15 marks) shall be decided based on the recommendation of the class committee and shall be announced at the beginning of every semester by the Principal.
- Internal Assessment for Theory Courses with Laboratory Component
The maximum marks for Internal Assessment shall be 15 in case of theory courses with Laboratory component.
If there is a theory course with Laboratory component, there shall be three tests: the first two tests (each 100 marks) will be from theory portions and the third test (maximum mark 100) will be for laboratory component. The sum of marks of first two tests shall be reduced to 30 marks and the third test mark shall be reduced to 30 marks. The sum of these 60 marks may then be arrived at for 15 and rounded to the nearest integer.
The Principal shall constitute a review committee for each branch of study. There shall be three reviews (each 100 Marks) during the semester by the review committee. The student shall make presentation on the progress made by him / her before the committee. The total marks obtained in the three reviews shall be reduced for 15 marks and rounded to the nearest integer. (This also implies equal weightage to all the three assessments), 5 marks shall be given for Attendance.
The project report shall carry a maximum 30 marks (same mark shall be awarded for the report submitted to every student within the project group) while the viva-voce examination shall carry 50 marks. (Marks are awarded to each student of the project group based on the individual performance in the viva-voce examination).

Every teacher is required to maintain an 'ATTENDANCE AND ASSESSMENT RECORD' which consists of attendance marked in each lecture or practical or project work class, the test marks and the record of class work (topic covered), separately for each course. This should be submitted to the Head of the department periodically (at least three times in a semester) for checking the syllabus coverage and the records of test marks and attendance. The Head of the department will put his signature and date after due verification. At the end of the semester, the record should be verified by the Principal who will keep this document in safe custody (for five years). The University or any inspection team appointed by the University may inspect the records of attendance and assessment of both current and previous semesters.
