2. Examination System
A student will be evaluated continuously in the courses system, for theoretical classes s/he will be assessed by class attendance, in-course assessment and final examination. For laboratory courses, a student will be assessed by class attendance, observation of his performance at work, viva-voce during laboratory works, evaluation of laboratory reports and practical examination. Field work and In-plant training are evaluated based on submission of a report, by a written examination and viva-voce. Project work is evaluated on continuous assessment basis by respective guide and evaluation of project’s report by the examiners.
2.1 Distribution of Marks: The marks of a given course will be as follows:
Class Attendance: 5%
In-course Assessment: 25%
Final examination: 70%
Performance and Report: 20%
Final examination: 60%
Field Work / In-plant Training
Written examination 40%
Continuous Assessment 20%
2.1.1 Class Attendance: The marks for class participation will be as follows:
