The following system is adopted for allotting Register Number for the students admitted in different UG and PG programmes. Illustration: A Register Number consisting of nine characters is allotted for a student admitted in the UG / PG programme. For instance, a students in Botany would have BO U A 12 001; Where the characters represent the following.
|First Two characters||Alphabets||BO||BOTANY|
|Third character||Alphabet||U/P/M/R*||(See below)|
|Fourth Character||Alphabet||A/S#||(See below)|
|Fifth and Sixth Character||Numeric||12||Year of Admission|
|Seventh,Eighth and Ninth||Numeric||001||Roll Order of Admission|
|* U for UG, P for PG, M for M.Phil., R for Ph.D.,|
|# A for Aided Programme; S for Un-Aided Programme|
The UG programme is for a period of three years and PG programme is for two years. Each year shall consist of two semesters viz. Odd and Even semesters. Odd semesters shall be from June / July to October / November and Even semesters shall be from November / December to April / May. There shall be minimum of 90 working days.
The UG and PG programme consists of number of courses. The term ‘course’ is
applied to indicate a logical part of the subject matter of the programme
and is invariably equivalent to the subject matter of a “paper” in the
conventional sense. The details of Language courses, Allied courses, Core
courses and Elective courses, Non-major elective courses, Skill-based
elective courses, Environmental studies, value education, Gender Studies and
project work for each programme shall be found in the syllabus book provided
to the students.
Each course shall be designed variously under lectures / tutorials / laboratory or field work / seminar / practical training / assignments / term paper or report writing etc., to meet effective teaching and learning needs.
Students who enroll for a Degree or Diploma programme shall appear for all the end semester examinations in the First Semester without having to apply for it. The fee for the examination is collected along with the Semester fee for every semester. However, from second semester onwards, students need to apply for the end semester examinations through ‘On-line’ registration system. The online exam application link is available on College website (www.nct.ac.in).
In case of students having arrear examinations, they need to specify the arrear courses at the time of online-submission of exam applications. The fee for arrear courses alone need to be paid through college office/bank separately. Upon successful completion of the online exam application procedure within the stipulated time period as communicated by the Controller’s office, the student may take out his own ‘Hall-Ticket’ in the printed format.
The student may not be able to apply for the online examination using his registration details if he / she has semester payment dues. If he / she falls short of the required percentage of attendance, He / She may not be able to download the Hall-Ticket.
Note: The online exam application weblink and hall ticket printing out facility may be kept open for students’ access only for a limited period of time as will be announced during the end of each semester. Beyond this time period, no student may have access to do so. Students who fail to apply through online mode for semester examinations may not be permitted to appear for the exams under any circumstances. Students who fail to print their own hall-ticket within this ‘access-period’ may not be permitted to appear for the exams under any circumstances.
Attendance: Students must have 75% of attendance in each semester for appearing the examination. Students who have 60% to 74% of attendance shall apply for condonation only for genuine medical reasons. Such candidates may apply for condonation with prescribed fee and a valid medical certificate. Students who have below 60% of attendance are not eligible to appear for the examination. They shall re-do the semester(s) after completion of the programme.
The general pattern of the question paper (theory) for end semester examinations shall be followed as given below.
Ten Questions (No choice)
Two Questions from each Unit
|10 x 2 = 20 marks|
Five Questions (EITHER-OR-type)
One Question from each Unit
|5 x 5 = 25 marks|
Three Questions out of five
One Question from each unit
|3 x 10 = 30 marks|
However, students are advised to contact their respective class-in-charge or Head of the Department for any change in the question paper pattern suggested above. There may be alterations in the question paper pattern owing to specific needs of the courses or progammes.
The performance of a student in each course is evaluated in terms of percentage of marks with a provision for conversion to grade points. Evaluation for each course shall be done by a continuous internal assessment by the concerned Course Teacher as well as by an end semester examination and will be consolidated at the end of the course. The components for continuous internal assessment are :
|Components||Under Graduate||Post Graduate||M.Phil.|
|Assignments||3 x 2 Marks = 06 Marks||3 x 2 Marks = 06 Marks||5 x 2 Marks = 10 Marks|
|CIA Test||2 x 7 Marks = 14 Marks||5 +7 Marks =12 Marks||1 x10 Marks = 10 Marks|
|Seminar||------||1x 2 Marks = 02 Marks||1 x 05Marks = 05 Marks|
|Teaching Practice||------||------||10 Marks|
|Attendance||05 Marks||05 Marks||05 Marks|
|Total||25 Marks||25 Marks||40 Marks|
Marks for attendance will be awarded as below
|95-100% - 5marks|
|90-95% - 4marks|
|85-90% - 3marks|
|80-85% - 2marks|
|75-80% - 1marks|
|Less than 75% - withheld|
The components for the Continuous Internal Assessment in the practical (for both UG & PG) are as follow:
|For Degree Programmes that does not have field work||For Degree Programmes that have field work|
|Observation Note||10 Marks||10 Marks|
|Record Note||10 Marks||10 Marks|
|Model Test||05 Marks||05 Marks|
|Total||25 Marks||25 Marks|
The end semester practical examination will be conducted with the following components:
|Practical = 70 Marks|
|Oral = 05 Marks|
The passing minimum for continuous Internal Assessment and Autonomous Examination shall be 40% individually and as aggregrate.
A candidate shall be declared to have passed in each course if he/she secures not less than 40% marks in the end semester examinations and 40% marks in the Continuous Internal Assessment and not less than 50% in the aggregate, taking Continuous assessment and Autonomous Examinations marks together. M.Phil Candidates shall be declared to have passed each course if he / she secures not less than 50% marks in the end semester examinations and 50% marks in the CIA and not less than 50% as aggregrate.
Supplementary exams are conducted for out-going students at the end of final semester within 15 Days of declaration of results for those students who have arrears in only one course.
Students who are absent in the CIA Test / Assignments shall be permitted to write the Test/Assignments before finalizing the CIA marks during the semester by remitting a fee of Rs. 50/- per course.

In case of PG students, those who secured passing minimum of 40% in both CIA and Autonomous Examination but failed to secure 50% in aggregate shall be considered as ‘failed’. Such students may not be permitted to improve CIA. However, he / she shall only appear for the theory examination in the subsequent semesters so as to secure the minimum pass of 50% in aggregate.
There is a provision for obtaining transparency (photocopy) of the answer scripts by remitting a fee of Rs. 200/- per course. A student may also opt for re-totaling of his/her answer scripts by remitting a fee of Rs. 300/- per course.
A student may also apply for revaluation of the answer scripts by remitting a fee of Rs. 500/- per course. However, in the process of revaluation, the answer scripts for the course concerned may not be revaluated directly. Rather, the transparency of the answer scripts for the applied course would be scrutinized for the essentiality before revaluation.
There is a provision to permit students willing to improve their marks / Grade Point by appearing in the immediate subsequent end semester examinations, provided the student does not have any arrear till that semester. A fee of Rs.500/- per course shall be collected for the improvement examination.
