Examinations

The examinations conducted by the University are broadly classified into two categories viz. major and minor. While the major examinations include mainly the B.A./B.Sc./B.Com. examinations, the minor examinations include all postgraduate examinations including P.G.-Certificate, P.G.-Diploma, M.Phil., etc.

About 400 examinations per year involving about 2, 75,000 candidates are conducted by the University. The Department of Controller of Examinations shoulders the responsibility of managing the entire examination system. The pre-examination jobs include preparation of answer scripts, processing of application forms, allotment of seats, printing of question papers and processing the assignments of examiners, etc. and post-examination jobs involve publication of results, post-publication re-examination and post-publication scrutiny of answer scripts and preparation of diploma/ degree certificates, etc. The Department keeps constant touch with about 205 undergraduate colleges and about 66 postgraduate departments for running the examination system.

In the undergraduate courses like B.A./B.Sc./ B.Com., both Honours and General courses are offered. The Honours course students study one subject of Honours, two General subjects, one compulsory English paper, one paper from any Major Indian Languages or Alternative English and Environmental Studies. The General course students study three subjects of General standard and language papers and Environmental Studies. Besides Honours and General courses, the University offers a separate course (Major) where application-based 19 vocational subjects are offered.
There is scope for re-evaluation of limited number of theoretical papers for candidates fulfilling stipulated criteria of minimum marks secured in other papers.

Almost all the M.Sc., B.Tech. and M.Tech. courses are conducted in semester system. In respect of M.A. and M.Com. courses, examinations are conducted at present annually.
