The Under Graduate Programme shall consist of three academic years with two semesters in each academic year. The first academic year shall be comprised of the 1st and 2nd Semesters, the second academic year – the 3rd and the 4th Semesters, and the third academic year – the 5th and the 6th semesters.
A student can avail a maximum of 10 Semesters ie., 5 years to finish graduation. No student shall be allowed to appear in any course more than three times (including a regular chance), and no student shall be allowed to appear in any course beyond ten semesters of his first admission. (Ref. MZU CBCS Regulation V (1) & (4))
Each semester will consist of 18 weeks of academic work equivalent to 90 actual teaching days. The Even Semester is from January to June and the Odd Semester is from July to December.
A student shall be eligible to write the end semester university examination only by attaining a minimum attendance of 75% in aggregate in the Core as well as Elective subjects.
Attendance shall be calculated by taking the average of the attendance percentage of all the months in a semester. The final attendance shall be the total of the average of attendance in all the subjects opted by the student.
Students are not entitled any leave of absence. However, in case of unavoidable circumstances, an application for leave supported by relevant documents should be submitted to the Principal through the concerned Head of Department within three days from the first day of absence from class.
Monthly attendance report shall be communicated to students by all the Departments for confirmation.
The system of evaluation is based on Continuous Assessment (CA) and End Semester Examination (ESE).
Continuous assessment known as Internal Examination (IE) is mandatory for all students and shall be conducted by the College. The average of the best two marks of the Internal Evaluation shall be considered as the marks obtained in the continuous assessment in that paper out of 10 marks for CBCS and 20 marks for non-CBCS.
Apart from the two IEs, one Home Assignment for 10 marks in each paper and attendance shall be taken into consideration as part of continuous assessment.
All the performances inside the classroom and within the campus shall also be taken into consideration.
Those students who attained 90% and above in attendance shall earn 5 marks, 85% -89% earn 4 marks, 80% – 84% earn 3 marks, and 75%-79% earn 2 marks as a part of a continuous internal assessment.
For the written IEs in the Continuous Assessment, the full mark will be 10 marks for CBCS and 20 marks for non-CBCS with 1 (one) hour duration respectively. The question pattern and distribution of marks shall be as follows:
Question patterns for CBCS:
- One question out of 2 (two) descriptive questions of 10 marks each (i.e. 1×10=10).
- Two questions out 3 (three) short answer type questions for 3 marks each (i.e. 2×3=6).
- Four questions of very short answer types for 1 mark each (i.e.1×4=4).
10 (ten) full marks is the assigned mark in the internal written test for CBCS, half of the mark scored by the student out of 20 full marks in the test shall be taken. For the non-CBCS, the marks scored out of 20 full marks shall be taken as it is.
