CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM FOR B.Sc. Information Technology FULL-TIME PROGRAMME 

CREDITS

Each B.Sc. Information Technology course is normally assigned one credit per lecture per week and one credit for two periods of tutorials or part thereof for laboratory or practical/internship per week. Each semester curriculum shall normally have a blend of theory and practical courses.

The credits are calculated from the estimated time and the estimated workload that is required on average for the completion of individual courses, modules, etc. The workload is made up of all learning activities that are part of a degree and are checked by means of a performance assessment. In addition to participating in courses such as lectures, tutorials, and seminars, self-study (library work or term paper), exam preparation, final theses, and final exams also contribute to the acquisition of credits. Credits are only awarded if the course has been completed and all course achievements and examinations have been passed in accordance with the examination regulations.

1 credit corresponds to a minimum of 25 and a maximum of 30 real hours of 60 minutes each of the student’s actual workload. In each year the total number of credits is 60. This corresponds to an actual workload of at least 1,500 (45 weeks for 33.33 hours per week or 25 hours per credit) or a maximum of 1,800 hours (45 weeks for 40 hours per week or 30 hours per credit).

240 credits must be earned in order to be awarded the degree.

 

DURATION OF THE PROGRAMME

A student is normally expected to complete a B.Sc. Information Technology program in four years but in any case not more than seven years from the time of admission otherwise the student would be considered not fit for technical education (NFTE).

 

REGISTRATION FOR COURSES

A newly admitted student will automatically be registered for all the courses prescribed for the first year, without any option. Every other student shall submit a completed registration form indicating the list of courses intended to be credited during the next semester. This registration will be done ten days before the last working day of the current semester. Late registration with the approval of the Dean’s office on the recommendation of the head of the department along with a late fee will be done, up to the last working day.

Registration for the project work shall be done only for the final semester. 

 

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS

The attendance will be calculated semester-wise. To be eligible to appear for the examination in a particular course, a student must put in a minimum of 80% of attendance in the course. The attendance should be considered which is logged in the university portal by the teachers. However, if the attendance is 70% or above but less than 80% in any course, the Dean’s office can permit the student to appear for the examination in the course on payment of the prescribed condonation fee. A student who withdraws from or does not meet the minimum attendance requirement in the course must re-register for and repeat the respective semester.

 

PASSING AND DECLARATION OF EXAMINATION RESULTS

All assessments of all the courses on the absolute mark basis will be considered and passed by the result passing board in accordance with the rules of the university. Thereafter, the controller of examinations shall convert the marks for each course to the corresponding letter grade as follows, compute the grade point average and cumulative grade point average, and prepare the grade cards.

 

Marks

Grade

90 to 100 marks

Grade ‘A+’

80 to 89 marks

Grade ‘A’

70 to 79 marks

Grade ‘B’

Grade ‘C’

55 to 59 marks

Grade ‘D’

50 to 54 marks

Grade ‘E’

less than 50 marks

Grade ‘F’

Grade ‘I’

Withdrawn from the course

Grade ‘W’

 

  • A student who obtains less than 50 marks out of 100 in a particular subject or less than 20 out of 50 in an external exam or is absent for the examination will be awarded Grade ‘F’.
  • A student who earns a grade of A+, A, B, C, D, or E for a course is declared to have successfully completed that course and earned the credits for that course. Such a course cannot be repeated by the student.
  • A student who obtains a letter grade F in a course has to reappear for the examination in that particular course.
  • A student who obtains letter grade I or W in a course has to re-register for and repeat the course.
  • The following grade points are associated with each letter grade for calculating the grade point average. A+–10; A–9; B–8; C–7; D–6; E–5; F–0
  • Courses with grades I and W are not considered for the calculation of grade point average or cumulative grade point average. F Grade will be considered for computing GPA and CGPA. 
  • A student can apply for a re-total of one or more of his examination answer papers within a week from the date of issue of the grade sheet to the student on payment of the prescribed fee per paper. The application must be made to the controller of examinations with the recommendation of the head of the department.
  • After results are declared, grade cards will be issued to the students. The grade card will contain the list of courses registered during the year/semester, the grades scored, and the grade point average(GPA) for the year/semester.
  • GPA is the sum of the products of the number of credits of a course with the grade point scored in that course, taken over all the courses for the Year/Semester, divided by the sum of the number of credits for all courses taken in that year/semester. CGPA is similarly calculated considering all the courses taken from the time of admission.
  • After successful completion of the program, the degree will be awarded the following classification based on CGPA.
    • For the student to be conferred First Class with Distinction the student must earn a minimum of 240 ECTs within four years from the time of admission, pass all the courses in the first attempt, and obtain a CGPA of 8.25 or above. (Or)
    • To be conferred First Class the student must earn a minimum of 240 ECTs within five years from the time of admission and obtain a CGPA of 6.5 or above. (Or)
    • For Second Class the student must earn a minimum of 240 ECTs within seven years from the time of admission.
