Duration of Semesters:

The duration of a semester is 6 (six) months, including Class tests, Assignments, Mid-term and Final Examinations. The time of the semester is 20 (Twenty) weeks which may be used as follows:

Classes (Theoretical and Practical)      7 weeks

Classes (Theoretical and Practical)                                        8 weeks
Final Examination                                                                 3 weeks

Grading System:

The performance of students is assessed based on a designed scheme termed as “continuous assessment”. For theoretical courses this continuous assessment is made through homework, assignment, attendance, quizzes, oral presentation etc. along with mid-term and semester final examination. The distribution of marks for a given course might be aligned with existing UIU policy which is as follows:

         I.           Class Attendance and Assignment                                          10%

         II.         Class Tests/Quizzes/Oral Presentation                                     10%

         III.        Mid-Term Exam                                                                       30%

         IV.        Final Exam                                                                               50%

                       Total:                                                                                       100%

Minimum Attendance in the Class should be 80% instead of 75% as per existing UIU policy.

A basic four point (4.00) grading scale will be followed. Letter grades and corresponding grade points will be awarded in accordance with the provision shown below:
