Scheme of Assessment
Evaluation is on the basis of both Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) and Semester End Examination (SEE). The CIA and SEE put together ensure an objective assessment throughout the course of study and cumulatively as well. The ratio of CIA to SEE is 40:60 for both UG and PG programmes. Both CIA and SEE are mandatory to complete a course successfully.
Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA)
- The components of CIA are as follows.
- Two internal tests ( UT I and UT II)
