Semester Scheme

Q1 What is the semester pattern of study? Why is it recommended?

It is a globally recommended and accepted pattern wherein the entire programme is divided into short spans (usually four to five months) of teaching followed by evaluation. This system is usually practiced in technical and higher levels of education for quality enhancement. In the semester scheme more content is covered in the curriculum and the burden on the student is less.

Q2 How is the Semester System implemented at THE IIS UNIVERSITY?

There will be two semesters

  • The Autumn Semester-beginning July and ending with Semester End Examinations in November-Dec
  • The Spring Semester- beginning December and ending with Semester End Examinations in April-May


Q3 Does the semester pattern of study apply to all the programmes?

This pattern is applicable to all U.G. and P.G. programmes, Career Oriented and Skill Development courses (COSD) Annual Scheme of Examination.


Q1 What is the Evaluation procedure?

In Semester Pattern of study Continuous Assessment of the students is recommended. This is accomplished through a combination of-
Evaluation of students is based on :

  • Continuous Internal Assessment (30% of the total marks) and
  • Semester End- Examination (70% of the total marks)

Assessment is done on credit-cum-percentage basis. This means that in order to pass a paper a candidate is required to obtain at least 36%/40%/50% (as per the Course) in continuous assessment and semester-end examination individually. When the candidate fulfils these requirements, she is awarded the credits assigned to the paper. In order to be eligible for the award of a Degree, the student must clear all the papers of the subjects she opts forn and earn the credits assigned to the programme. For instance, a student studying for a Degree in the Bachelor of Arts (BA) would be conferred the same only when she has passed all the subjects/papers she has opted for, qualifies in all the foundation courses, and earns the minimum required credits assigned to various co-curricular activities.

Q2 How is the continuous internal Assessment done?

The Internal Assessment shall be a continuous process and shall comprise 30% of the total marks assigned to each paper. The distribution of marks for theory papers shall be as per the following scheme:

  1. Written Tests
  2. Home Assignments / Quiz
  3. Student Teacher Interaction
  4. Attendance

Scheme of C.A at UG & PG level: Practicals/Projects for various courses have different schemes of evaluation suited to the nature of the subject and the job assigned.

Q3 How is the Semester End assessment done?

Assessment is confined to the Semester-End Examination carries 70% weightage. The subjects with practical component have practical examinations. Projects are assessed through viva-voce under the supervision of external examiners. The theory papers are set by experts from outside. Evaluation of answer books is done by one external and one internal examiner and average of the two is taken as final awards. This help in ensuring proper evaluation of each answer book.

Q4 What are the features of continuous Assessment?

In continuous assessment teaching and evaluation go side by side. A student is evaluated through tests, home assignments and other methods when her memory are fresh and thus she has opportunity to show best performance. Objectivity, Transparency and Impartiality are the watchwords of internal evaluation. This is accomplished through increasing objective content of the test question papers and maintaining transparency in the evaluation.

Q5 What is Credit System?

A Credit is a unit of measurement for the quantum of work required of a student in a particular course, e.g., 2 Credits, 3 Credits, etc. The Credits are based on the number of teaching hours per week.

Q6 Why is Credit System used?

Credit System is recommended because it is a novel method of evaluation and is globally recognized. By way of earned credits, the Credit Weighted Average (CWA) is worked out which provides us an index of the students performance like the percentage of marks obtained by her. At the end of each semester, Semester Credit Weighted Average (SCWA) is awarded, whereas on the completion of the course ‘Cumulated Credit Weightage Average’ (CCWA) is awarded. The candidate is awarded a class division on the basis of CCWA.

Q7 How does it benefit the student?

It is more scientific and is a widely accepted system.

Q8 How would a student earn Credits?

If the student secures a minimum of 36% of the marks in the Continuous Assessment in a paper and a minimum of 36% of the marks allotted to the Semester End Examination, she is assumed to have passed that paper and earns the Credits assigned to that paper.

Q9 How many credits are needed for the promotion to next higher semester?

Promotion from an odd semester to even semester is automatic i.e. without any condition of credits earned in the odd semester. Thus all the students who have taken the examination of first semester are promoted to the second semester. However, for promotion to the next higher odd semester, her performance in the last two semesters is taken into account i.e. for promotion to III semester her performance in the I and II semester will be considered.

At U.G. level pass courses, where total credits assigned to the three electives are 8 x 3 = 24, in a semester, i.e. 48 in two semesters, a candidate must have earned at least 20 credits for being eligible to be promoted to the next higher odd semester. Similarly in Honours courses where total credits of Major and Subsidiary for the two semesters are 48, a candidate must obtain at least 20 credits for promotion to the next higher semester. Credits earned in Foundation courses and co-curricular activities shall not be counted for the purpose of promotion.

In P.G. level and professional courses, the minimum credits required for promotion to the next higher odd semester shall be 50% of the total credits assigned to different papers, practicals, project etc., prescribed in the last two semesters taken together. If the number to total credits assigned happens to be an odd number, it will be added by one and than 50% of it will provide the minimum credits required to be earned for promotion.

Q10 Dose the Marksheet contain Percentage or Credits?

The Marksheet mentions both, the Credits as well as the marks obtained by the student. The Credit Weighted Average (CWA) as well as the percentage of marks will also be worked out and included in Mark-sheet.

Q11 Is percentage a better index or CWA?

The CWA is better because it, inherently, carries the impact of credits assigned to different papers.

Q12 Is ite easier for the student to seek admission elsewhere after passing out from this Evaluation Scheme?

Yes, this is widely accepted. Besides the CWA, the Mark-sheet would find a mention of the percentage of marks as well. Thus, there will be no difficulty as regards admission.

Q13 Is Division awarded?

Yes, Division is awarded and mentioned in the Consolidated Marksheet as well as the Degree.

Q14 How is the Division worked out?

The Division is mentioned only in the Consolidated Mark-sheet issued on the completion of the course, after the candidate has qualified in all the Foundation, Core, specialized and any other subjects/ papers and practicals/project prescribed for the course and has also fulfilled necessary conditions for participation in NSS/ NCC/Games and Sports/Cultural Activities and earned the required minimum Credits.

The mark-sheet issued at the end of a semester will contain marks obtained in different papers and the credits earned in the papers in which the candidate has passed. If a candidate has passed all the papers prescribed in a semester, the marksheet will also bear percentage of marks obtained by the candidate and the ‘Semester Credit Weighted Average’ (SCWA).

The Consolidated Mark-sheet will include the Percentage of aggregate marks obtained and a credit based figure Cumulative Credit Weighted Average (CCWA). The CCWA is the cumulative Average of all the credits earned through different semesters of the course. The Semester Credit Weighted Average (SCWA) or the cumulative credit weighted Average (CCWA) is calculated through the formula prescribed for calculating Credit Weighted Average (CWA) in the following manner:

CWA= S Credits earned x marks obtained in each paper / practical Total Credits

Total marks of Continuous Assessment (CA) and Semester- End Examination shall be considered for working out CWA. The criteria for calculating Division is as follows:
36% or above but less than 48% Pass
48% or above but less than 60% II Division
60% or above but less than 75% I Division 75% and above I Division with Credit

Q15 Who awards the marksheet?

The mark-sheet bearing a hallmark and other security features will be awarded by the University under the seal and signatures of the Rector and the Controller of Examinations.

Q17 Is revaluation permitted?

As of now revaluation is not proposed. The evaluation system is being designed in a manner that reduces the possibility of errors to the satisfaction of the students. This shall be ensured by way of the following methods:
Totaling of marks will be done for each award list so as to reduce the possibility of erroneous calculation.

  • The answer booklets of Continuous Assessment will be shown to the students.
  • The answer books of the Semester-End Examination will be doubly evaluated. Firstly by some external examiner and then by an internal faculty appointed by the Principal. The average of the two awards will be taken as the marks obtained by the candidate. This would automatically eliminate the possibility of under marking.
  • The answer books shall be coded and fictitious roll numbers shall be put up before sending the answer books for evaluation so as to eliminate any chances of partiality.
