The University follows a Semester System with Odd Semester from July to December and Even Semester from January to June. There is a Winter Vacation of approximately three weeks in Dec/Jan and a Summer Vacation of approximately 8 weeks in June/July. A special Semester called Summer Semester is conducted during the Summer Vacation for those students who could not appear in the normal Semester End Exams due to attendance shortage. These students can attend the Summer Semester and complete the subjects in which they were detained due to shortage of attendance. We have continuous evaluation through the semester with assignments, quiz tests, three in semester exams and an Semester end exam. A student earns the credits assigned to a subject on passing the subject. On an average, there are 25 credits required for completing a semester. On completing the required credits for a semester, the Semester Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed for each student. On completion of more than one semester, the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated for all semesters completed by a student at a given stage of his degree course. The overall grade achieved by a student is reflected as the CGPA achieved by him/her at completion of all semesters of the course.
