Repeating and Improvement of Courses

An academically deficient student (Regular or Casual) shall be allowed to repeat / improve the courses during the summer semester if offered as well as during the regular semesters whenever the teaching and examination schedule makes it possible for him/her to register himself/herself for the courses and to take the Mid and End Semester Examination. In case of repetition/improvement of a course the student shall have to pay course registration and examination fee as prescribed by the University. It shall be noted that a student can only improve grades D & F.

Registration of Additional and summer semister courses

An academically deficient student (i.e. Regular or Casual) shall be allowed to get himself/herself registered for two courses at maximum irrespective of the credit hours in a summer semester. An academically deficient regular student will also be allowed to get himself/herself registered for two additional courses at maximum with lower semesters if offered with his/her regular semester. Whereas an academically deficient casual student will also be allowed to get himself/herself registered for five courses at maximum with lower semesters if offered in regular semesters.

Summer Semester

  • Summer semester shall be primarily for those students who want to repeat/improve certain courses to make up for their academic deficiencies.
  • An academically deficient student (i.e. Regular or Casual) shall be allowed to get himself/herself registered for two courses at maximum irrespective of the credit hours in a summer semester.
  • The minimum strength to offer a course in Summer Semester will be Five (05) students. However the Dean of the concerned Academic Department may be empowered to decide the number of Students to be registered in the courses offered in Summer Semester instead of the condition of minimum five (05) students for final year only with the approval of competent authority.
  • Teaching shall be mandatory for all offered courses in Summer Semester.
  • The contact hours during the Summer Semester shall be doubled to ensure that the course is completely taught in a Summer Semester with half of the duration compared to regular (Fall or Spring) semester.
  • Letter Grade awarded during summer semester shall not be more than a “B” grade. Also no “I” grade will be awarded in summer semester.
  • The Registration, Attendance, Conduct of Examination and Result display policies etc. during the Summer Semester shall be same as in regular semester.
  • It shall be in the best interest of the students to clear their failed courses or the courses where they want to improve their grades by repeating the courses as early as possible. The University will not be responsible to offer Failed or Improvement Courses in the final year unless and until the other conditions of Summer Semester Registration are fulfilled.

Semester Registration

The registration for the first semester including all other semesters shall be made by the Registrar Office:-

  • The registration of the students for each semester shall be completed ten days prior to the start of the semester in accordance with the Academic Calendar notified by the Controller of Exams. The application forms shall be obtained from the Admission Office. The Registrar will notify the list of registered students within ten days of the start of regular semester and four days of the start of summer semester. He/She will also forward these lists to all concerned within two weeks.
  • In case of a regular semester, if a student fails to register himself/herself for cogent reasons, a fine of Rs.100/- per day will be charged till the first day of the commencement of classes. After that, his/her name will be removed from the rolls of the Apcoms and he/she will have to pay the readmission fee along with fine before he/she is readmitted. Application to this affect shall be submitted to the concerned Dean of Faculty.
  • If a student fails to get registered for a regular semester, till one month after the start of semester he/she will be treated as suspended from Apcoms. The suspension can be lifted by the orders of the Principal only along with re-admission fee and fine.
  • For above both cases (b & c) the student will not claim any other relaxation in the rules governing for teaching, attendance and examinations etc.

Attendance REQUIREMENTS

No candidate shall be eligible to appear in an End Semester Examination unless the following conditions are fulfilled:-

  • He/She has been on the rolls of the Apcoms during the semester for which the examination is being held, unless allowed by the regulations to take examination in order to repeat/improve a course.
  • He/She is not debarred from taking the examination under the Apcoms rules and regulations in-force for the time being.
  • He/She has attended a minimum of 80% of the total number of lectures delivered, the laboratory periods held, design and practical work done in a course during the Semester for which the exam is being held.
  • If a student does not fulfill the condition of attendance, he/she shall be awarded an F-grade in that course whether theory or practical and will have to re-register for that course in the Summer Semester if offered or in a regular semester (as an additional course) in which the course is being offered.

Student Evaluation System

The performance of every student shall be continuously monitored and assessed throughout the semester. During the semester a student's performance shall be evaluated by taking quizzes, assignments, mid semester examination, laboratory reports, and project presentations etc. An end semester examination shall also be taken covering the entire syllabus. Theory and practical parts of a subject will be treated as separate courses. It will be mandatory for the student to pass both the parts. Separate Grades will be awarded and will be reflected on the Grade Sheet and Transcript of Awards.

Grading Mechanism

Course grades shall be awarded to the students preferably based on their relative performance in the course with minimum student's strength more than ten (10). Grading shall be usually carried out on the basis of normal distribution curve using statistical methods with preferably B as the class average. Grades shall be indicated by letters. There shall be 4-letter Grades i.e. A, B, C & D for individual courses with 9 performance levels e.g:-

Letter Grades Performance Level
2 As A+ & A-
3 Bs B+, B & B-
3 Cs C+, C & C-
1 D Simple D
F Fail
I Incomplete

Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA)

The semester grade point average (SGPA) shall be calculated by multiplying the grade points earned in a course with the number of credit hours of that course, taking the sum of such products for each course taken in that semester and finally dividing the result by the total number of credit hours attempted/earned in that semester.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

The cumulative GPA (CGPA) shall be calculated similarly (as that for SGPA) for all the courses taken in all the semesters of the degree programme.

Evaluation Components

  • Quizzes:

    There shall be an appropriate number of quizzes (announced/unannounced) per course.

  • Mid Semester Examination

    There shall be one mid semester examination of 1.5 to 2.0 hours duration for each theory part of a subject in a semester after eighth week of teaching in case of regular semester and after fourth week in case of summer semester. While for practical part, the mid semester examination will be conducted during practical/lab hours.

  • Home Assignments / Mini Projects:

    There shall be an appropriate number (at least 04) of Home Assignments and /or Mini Projects per course in a semester.

  • Laboratory Reports:

    The students shall submit laboratory reports on each laboratory practical held for the subject having practical part which the course teacher will evaluate during the semester.

  • End-Semester Examination

    There shall be separate End Semester Examination for theory and practical part of a subject. The duration of Theory paper will be from 2.00 to 3.00 hours covering the entire course at the end of each semester. In case of practical part the oral/viva voce examination will be conducted jointly by the course Teacher (i.e. Internal Examiner) and External/ Neutral Examiner. The examination shall be held in the last two weeks of each regular semester and last one week of summer semester. Student Failed in Practical or Theory part will be considered failed only in that part and will only repeat that part.
