Internal Evaluation

Internal Evaluation

The evaluation of each course shall contain two parts:

  • Internal or In-Semester Assessment (ISA)

  • External or End-Semester Assessment (ESA)

The internal to external assessment ratio shall be 1:4, for both courses with or without practical. There shall be a maximum of 80 marks for external evaluation and maximum of 20 marks for internal evaluation. For all courses (theory & practical), grades are given on a 07-point scale based on the total percentage of marks. (ISA+ESA) as given below

Percentage of Marks Grade Grade Point
90 and above A+ – Outstanding 10
80-89 A – Excellent 9
70-79 B – Very Good 8
60-69 C – Good 7
50-59 D – Satisfactory 6
40-49 E – Adequate 5
Below 40 F – Failure 4


Note: Decimal are to be rounded to the next whole number



Credit Point (CP) of a course is calculated using the formula CP = C x GP, where C = Credit; GP = Grade point

Credit Point Average (CPA) of a Semester/Programme is calculated using the formula

CPA = TCP/TC, where TCP = Total Credit Point; TC = Total Credit

Grades for the different semesters and overall programme are given based on the corresponding CPA as shown below:

CPA Grade
Above 9 A+ – Outstanding
Above 8, but below or equal to 9 A – Excellent
Above 7, but below or equal to 8 B -Very Good
Above 6, but below or equal to 7 C – Good
Above 5, but below or equal to 6 D – Satisfactory
Above 4, but below or equal to 5 E – Adequate
4 or below F – Failure



Note: A separate minimum of 30% marks each for internal and external (for both theory and practical) and aggregate minimum of 40% are required for a pass for a course. For a pass in a programme, a separate minimum of Grade E is required for all the individual courses. If a candidate secures F Grade for any one of the courses offered in a Semester/Programme only F grade will be awarded for that Semester/Programme until he/she improves this to E grade or above within the permitted period. Candidate who secures E grade and above will be eligible for higher studies.


The external examination of all semesters shall be conducted by the University at the end of each semester. Internal evaluation is to be done by continuous assessment. Marks distribution for external and internal assessments and the components for internal evaluation with their marks are shown below: Components of the internal evaluation and their marks are as below.

  • For all courses without practical
  • Marks of external Examination : 80
  • Marks of internal evaluation : 20

All the three components of the internal assessment are mandatory. For common course English in I Semester, internal oral examination shall be conducted instead of test paper.
