The syllabus for the theory courses is divided into FIVE units and each unit carries equal weightage in terms of marks distribution. The question paper pattern is as follows. Two full questions with “either‟ “or‟ choice will be drawn from each unit. Each question carries 14 marks. There could be a maximum of three sub divisions in a question. The emphasis on the questions is broadly based on the following criteria:

50 % To test the objectiveness of the concept
30 % To test the analytical skill of the concept
20 % To test the application skill of the concept

Evaluation

Evaluation of answer books for all examinations shall be done centrally. All the answer scripts shall be shuffled subject wise and coded before they are sent for valuation. The theory papers of end-semester examination should be evaluated both by internal examiner and external examiner. The first valuation of the answer scripts should be done by the internal faculty, teaching the subject. The second evaluation should be done by an examiner faculty outside the college. In case of difference of more than 15% of marks, the answer paper shall be re-evaluated by a third examiner appointed by the Examination Committee and marks awarded by this examiner shall be taken as final.
