    Promotion system:

    A student is normally required to earn at least 50% credits in a semester. At the

    end of each semester, the students will be classified into the following three

    categories:

    Category 1: Students who have passed all the courses prescribed for the semester

    and have no backlog of courses. A student belonging to category 1 shall be

    eligible to register for all courses prescribed for the next semester.

    Category 2: Students who have earned at least 50% credits in the semester. A

    student belonging to category 2 is advised to take at least one course less in the

    next semester subject to the condition that he/she has to register for such backlog

    courses as may be prescribed by the department.

    Category 3: Consisting of students who have failed to earn 50% credits in the

    semester. A student belonging to this category is advised to take at least two

    courses less in the next semester subject to registration for a minimum of 50%

    credits. However he/she will be required to register for such backlog courses as

    may be prescribed by the department.

    If there is any fraction to calculate the minimum 50% credits, the students will be earned minimum round credits. That is, there is no fraction credit.

    A student of 1st , 2nd , 3rd , 4th , 5th , 6th , 7th , 8th semester can take a course one time as backlog course because he/she has to complete the program within 06

    (six) academic years.

    A student of category 2 and 3 will not be allowed to take more than 25 credits (including backlog courses) in any semester.

    In addition to these two regular semesters, there may be a short semester in the intervening period between end of Semester-2 and commencement of semester-1.

    During this short semester students, those who need, may take additional courses

    to make up deficiencies in Credit and GPA requirements for bachelors degree

    spending less than the normal duration; and other students may take vacation.

    Degree Requirements:

    i) The candidate carrying F Grade in any course shall not be awarded the degree of B.Sc. Honours.

    ii) At least a CGPA of 2.50 must be achieved to get a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree.

    Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation:

    No credits are granted for grade less than D. Grade Point Average (GPA) is

    calculated as total points secured divided by credit earned. Computation of Grade

    Point Average (GPA) and Cumulated Grade Point Average (CGPA).
