- Marks distribution is as follows –
- University Theory exam – 70 marks
- Mid semester exam – 30 marks
- Practical/Continuous Evaluation/Viva Voce etc – 50 marks
Minimum passing marks required
In order to be considered fully passed in a subject, a student must score as follows –
- University Theory exam – 23 marks
- Mid semester exam – 12 marks
- Practical/Continuous Evaluation/Viva Voce etc – 25 marks
On the result card, a letter grade is shown against each subject. How to find out grade based on marks scored, you may ask. The grade is obtained by converting marks (obtained by adding internal marks and marks scored in University theory exam). Mid semester exam carries 30% weight and University theory exam carries 70% weight.
