Course wise (paper wise) attendance is maintained for students.
85% Attendance is the minimum eligibility requirement for writing end-semester tests/final semester examinations.
Students who have put in an attendance in the range of 75% to 84% will have to apply for condonation to the Principal. In case the condonation is granted by the Principal, they have to pay the prescribed condonation fee.
Students with an attendance in the range of 65% to 74% and with a passing minimum in the Test and in the Assignment components of CIA are designated as TRANSITIONALLY NOT PERMITTED candidates. They can acquire the eligibility status by undergoing the Winter/Summer program (for ten days duration with cent percent attendance) at the end of that semester, after registering their names for the same by remitting the prescribed fees for each paper. The winter/summer program consists of lecture classes, assignment submission, a special CIA test and a viva-voce examination. Such of those students who have successfully completed the winter/summer program in a paper (by securing 100% attendance in the summer program, by completing the assignments on time, by securing not less than 40% marks in the special CIA test for that paper and by appearing for viva voce examination) will be declared as ELIGIBLE for that paper Otherwise they will be declared as NOT ELIGIBLE candidates and they have to rejoin the regular program for that paper in the corresponding semester, only after the completion of the Degree program.
Students who have secured an attendance below 65% are designated as NOT ELIGIBLE candidates. Such students may acquire the eligibility by successfully undergoing the 45 days crash programme. Otherwise they have to repeat the course (paper) by rejoining the regular program for that paper in the corresponding semester, only after the completion of the Degree program.
Students who are declared as NOT ELIGIBLE in all courses for both the semesters in the first year of their programme shall be dismissed from the college.

The Assignment component carries 5 marks being distributed at the rate of 1 mark per unit.The passing minimum is 2 marks.

The student requires submission of Assignment to the co-ordinator. The Teaching practice carries 15 marks with a passing minimum of7 marks. For this the student has to handle model classes.
For each of the theory courses, the passing minimum is 37 out of 75 marks.
The overall passing minimum for Theory and CIA is 50 out of 100.
Passing Minimum For Dissertaion
Viva-Voce(Joint – Evaluation)
Candidates during their study in the college may register for improvement of semester examination performance in theory course(s) passed in first attempt only in the Semester Examination immediately next to the Semester Examination in which the candidates have passed those papers in the first attempt.
In addition to the facility offered in item (i), the outgoing candidates who have passed all the courses of their course of study and thereby have made themselves fit for the award of the degree may also register for improvement of performance in any two theory papers of their programme in the subsequent Supplementary Examination that follows the Final Semester Examination in order to improve their OGPA.
Students who have failed to appear for any one of two internal tests (Mid-semester/End-semester) for valid reasons will be permitted to improve their CIA test components in the respective courses by way of appearing for supplementary CIA test, provided that they have acquired pass in CIA in those courses.
In the case of students opting for improvement of performance in any of the CIA components in order to secure passing minimum either in that CIA components or in the consolidated CIA Total marks, the marks secured by them after improvement will be capped to the passing minimum either in that CIA component or in the consolidated CIA total marks as the case may be.
In order to maintain the marginal difference in CIA and External Examination Scores upto 25% level, normalization of CIA scores has been adopted for courses for which CRI indices are less than 75%.
