  1. It is the responsibility of each student registered in coursework during the current semester to take the prescribed components of the evaluation such as Assignment / Quiz (online), Mid-Semester Tests and Comprehensive Examinations according to the schedule given in the respective Course Handouts.

  2. For each course for which the student is registered in the current semester, the student must attend the Assignment / Quiz (online), Mid-Semester Test (EC-2, 35%, 2 Hours duration, Closed Book type) as well as the Comprehensive Examination (EC-3, 50%, 3 Hours duration, Open Book type).

  3. IF a student is absent for any examination of a course, then s/he will be required to register in those course(s) again in a subsequent semester and appear for all evaluation components again in that semester, to clear the course. The marks obtained in any evaluation component in a semester cannot be carried forward to a subsequent semester.

  4. For every semester of registration, the full semester fees must be paid, irrespective of the number of courses registered in that semester. There is no separate exam fees payable per course. The semester fees, once paid for registration in a semester cannot be carried forward to a subsequent semester, even if the student is absent for all tests / exams of that course.

  5. IF the student is unable to appear for any of the Regular Mid-Semester Tests (EC-2) or Regular Comprehensive Examinations (EC-3) due to genuine personal or professional exigencies, the student can apply for permission to take the Make-up Tests / Make-up Examinations, which will be held only at selected exam centers.
