CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT = 40%

END OF SEMESTER EXAMINATION = 60%

The Continuous Assessment component consists of take- home assignment, class quizzes and tests, term papers and project works. The Component gives students the chance to demonstrate their abilities on a wider variety of learning tasks and a broader variety of work environments than is possible under formal examination conditions. For example: through Continuous Assessment students can learn the values and processes of teamwork, plan and solve real-life problems.

End of Semester Examination

The duration of End of Semester Examination is determined by the credit weighting of the course; the pattern is as follows:
