Combination of Theory and Practical 

This includes two components:

  • Component 1

Continuous Evaluation (CE) — 70% (40% theory + 10% attendance + 20% practicals)

  • Theory CE includes assignments, term tests, seminars, tech talks, mini projects, case studies, self study, and others. 
  • Practical CE includes lab manuals

  • Component 2

Semester-end Evaluation (SEE) — 30% (20% theory + 10% practicals)

  • Theory includes a 2‑hour long semester-end examination that will be conducted for a maximum of 40 marks and reduced to 20% weight
  • Practicals include OSPE stations and viva voce. SEE will be conducted for a maximum of 50 marks and will be reduced to 10% weight

Please Note:
