Internal Assessment shall be done based on the following:

Sl. No. Description Weightage
1 Class Tests/Quizzes (02/02) 40%
2 Assignments (Problems/Presentations) +tutorials 40%
3 General Discipline + Attendance 20%

*Internal Assessment Record Sheet (including Mid Term Examination marks) will be displayed on LMS at
the end of semester i.e. last week of regular classroom teaching*.

5.1.1 CLASS TESTS/QUIZZES:
Two Class Tests based on descriptive type theoretical & numerical questions and Two Quizzes based on
objective type questions will be held; one Class Test and one Quiz atleast ten days before the Mid Term
Examination and second Class Test and second Quiz atleast ten days before the End Term Examination.
Those who do not appear in Class Tests and Quiz examinations shall lose their marks.

*The marks obtained by the students will be displayed on LMS a week before the start of Mid Term and End
Term Examinations respectively*.

5.1.2 ASSIGNMENTS:
After completion of each unit or in the mid of the unit, there will be home assignments based on theory and
numerical problems. Those who do not submit or fail to submit the assignments by the due date and shall
lose their marks.

*The marks obtained by the students will be displayed on LMS after each submission and subsequent
evaluation*.

5.1.3 GENERAL DISCIPLINE:
Based on students regularity, punctuality, sincerity and behaviour in the class, the students will be awarded
marks.

*The marks obtained by the students will be displayed on LMS at the end of semester*.
5.2. MID TERM EXAMINATION: WEIGHTAGE 20%
Mid Term examination shall be Two Hours duration and shall be a combination of Short and Long theory
Questions.

*Date of showing Mid Term Examination Answer Sheets will be informed *
4


5.3. END TERM EXAMINATION: WEIGHTAGE 50%
End Term Examination shall be Three Hours duration and shall be a combination of Short and Long
theory/numerical Questions.

6.0 GRADING
The overall marks obtained at the end of the semester comprising all the above three mentioned shall be
converted to a grade.

7.0. ATTENDANCE
Students are required to have a minimum attendance of 75% in the subject. Students with less than the
stipulated percentage of attendage shall not be allowed to appear in the End Term Examination
