Theory Examination:

1.        Question paper will comprise of total 7 questions, each of 15 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)

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

Term Work.

Term work shall consist of minimum five experiments and a written test. The distribution of marks for term work shall be as follows:

•        Loboratory work (Experiments and journal                                  : 10 Marks

•        Test (at least one)                                                                         : 10 Marks

•       Attendance (Theory and Theory)                                                   : 05 Marks

Total                                                                                              : 25 Marks

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