ACADEMIC STANDING AND PROBATION

Students of FM&AMS are governed by the rules and regulations formulated by the PM&DC. This includes matters pertaining to registration of courses, examinations, internal assessment and final grading of courses. However, the following rules and regulation govern the students of FES&T and FCE&MS in these matters.

GPA: The academic standing of a student, at the end of a semester, is referred to in terms of a grade-point average (GPA).

This is calculated by dividing the total number of earned grade points by the total number of credits registered in the semester. For a student to remain in good academic standing, one has to earn a minimum GPA of 2.00, 2.50 or 3.00 in Bachelor, Master or M. Phil / Ph. D degree programs respectively.

Academic Probation: Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which their semester GPA falls below the above specified limits. Such students may be required to register for fewer courses than the normal load in the following semester.

Dismissal: However, the student who continuously fails to obtain a minimum GPA of 2.00, 2.50 or 3.00 in Bachelor, Master or M. Phil / Ph. D degree programs, respectively, for two consecutive semesters may be dismissed from the University. Willful or deliberate absence from classes and from other instructional or laboratory sessions shall also be considered as a cause of dismissal.A student of postgraduate program of FM&AMS who fails to obtain a minimum of 60% marks in a subject in three consecutive attempts will be dismissed from the University.

Award of Degree: To qualify for the award of a degree, a student must pass all the required courses, complete the required credit hours and earn a cumulative grade point average (CPGA) of 2.00, 2.50 or 3.00 in Bachelor, Master or M Phil / Ph D degree programs, respectively. The students of Master, M Phil or Ph D programs will also have to successfully defend their dissertation or thesis to become eligible for award of the degree. To qualify for the award of a degree, a student of postgraduate program of FM&AMS must pass all the courses, complete the required credit hours and obtain at least 60% marks in each course. The students of Master, M Phil and Ph D programs are required to defend their dissertation/thesis to become eligible for award of degree.

INCOMPLETE GRADE

An incomplete (I) grade is given to students in a course if they do not complete coursework requirements within the prescribed time-limits, and the instructor is satisfied that this was because of circumstances beyond their control, and that only a minor component of the course is outstanding. The outstanding requirements, in such cases, are to be met at the beginning of the next semester, and the students themselveshave to make arrangements for the completion of the course requirements with the concerned instructor(s). Failing this, an Incomplete (I) grade is automatically converted to an F grade. The grade point average of a student for a semester is calculated by excluding the Incomplete (I) grade, and it is re-calculated when a regular grade is awarded in that course.
