Theory Examination:

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

2.         Only 5 questions need to be attempted.

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

4.         Remaining questions will be of mixed nature.

5.         In  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  one  experiment  performed  from  the  list  of

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


Term work:

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

the term work marks 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.
