Theory Examination:

1.         Question paper will comprise total 7 questions of 20 marks each.

2.         Only 5 questions need to be attempted.

3.         Q.1 will be compulsory covering the entire syllabus.

4.         Remaining questions will be of mixed nature.

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


Practical/Oral Examination:

Practical examination will be based on a given experiment performed from the list of

experiments given in the syllabus and the oral will be based on entire subject syllabus.

Term work:

Term work consists of minimum eight experiments and a written test. The distribution of

the 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.
