Theory Examination:


1.        Question paper will be comprising of total 7 question, each of 20 marks.

2.         Only 5 questions need to be solved.

3.         Q, 1 will be compulsory and based on entire syllabus

4.         Remaining questions will be mixed in nature (e.g. suppose Q.2 has part (a) form, module 3 then part (b) will be form any module other then module3)

5.         In question paper weightage of each module will be proportional to number of respective lecture hours as mentioned in the syllabus.

Practical and oral Examination:

Practical and oral examination will be based on one experiment performed form the list of experiment given in the syllabus and the oral will be based on the same experiment.


Term Work.



•        Term work shall consist of minimum six experiments, assignments consisting numerical based on above syllabus and a written test.

•        The distribution of marks for term work shall be as follows,

•        Laboratory work (Experiments and Journal: 10 Marks

•        Test (at least one)                                       : 10 Marks

•        Attendance (Practical and Theory)              : 05 Marks

•                The final certification and acceptance of term-work ensures the satisfactory performance of laboratory work and minimum passing in the term –work.
