Examination and Valuation

There are two components in the valuation and assessment of a student – internal and external. These are implemented through

Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) during the semester for 25 marks.

Semester Examination (SE) at the end of the semester for 75 marks.

The maximum marks for each subject shall be hundred unless specified otherwise. Each under-graduate programme consists of 6 semesters. Each post-graduate programme consists of 4 semesters for Arts and Science subjects and 6 semesters for application oriented subjects.


The CIA consists of three components – (i) two organized written tests, (ii) the second component and (iii) Attendance.

i)  Organized written tests

There will be two written tests (Mid-semester and End-Semester) of 2 hours duration each and carries 75 marks. Organized written tests component carry 40% for UG (60% for PG) of the marks of the CIA. Syllabus of minimum 2 units shall be included for each written test. Any re-test is permitted by the Principal only for special reasons.

ii)  The second component

40% of marks (for both UG and PG) will be distributed among the various types of work provided to students by the teacher-in-charge of the course. The type of work is left to the initiative of the teacher-in-charge of the course and approved by the Head of the Department concerned. It is expected that the staff member in-charge of the course explains the modalities of the evaluation adopted for each subject (assignment, seminar, viva voce, mini project, group discussion, field visit etc.). If only one type of work is done, there would be a minimum of two such exercises per semester for each paper.

iii)  Attendance

For UG Students upto 20% of the CIA marks are given for attendance graded up from the minimum requirement. There is no attendance mark for the PG courses.

There is no provision for improvement in CIA.


A student should register himself / herself to appear for the semester examinations by payment of the prescribed fee.

The semester examination will be in the form of comprehensive examination covering the entire syllabus in each subject. It will be of 3 hours duration for part I, II & III subjects and 2 hours for part IV subjects.


There shall be single valuation for both Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate examinations. The panel of examiners consists of internal and external examiners.

The valuation will be centralized.

A student has a maximum period of 5 years from the date of admission to clear all the subjects prescribed for the programme at the time of his/her admission. After the fifth year, to complete the programme, the student has to appear for an examination in the same / equivalent paper under the revised syllabus structure.

Fraction of final marks in CIA and SE shall be rounded off to the nearest integer.


A student can apply for the photocopy of answer script, if needed, on payment of the prescribed fee.

A student can apply for revaluation of any paper, on payment of the prescribed fee, if it is the first appearance in the paper. Receipt of photocopy of the answer script is a pre-requisite for revaluation.

Note: Any grievance regarding CIA and SE can be reported to the Controller of Examinations in writing.

Office of the COE

As an autonomous college, St. Joseph’s College of Arts & Science follows the semester pattern with Choice Based Credit System requiring 3 years of study for an under-graduate degree programme and 2 years of study for a post-graduate programme in Arts & Science and 3 years of study for application oriented post-graduate degree programme. The duration of each semester is 90 working days.

The college has obtained Autonomous status and opted for Choice Based Credit System for the students admitted in UG and PG courses from the Academic Year 2008 – 2009. The objectives of the credit system are
To provide mobility and flexibility for the students within and outside the department;
To provide broad-based education
To provide students scope to acquire extra credits;
To impart to students more job-oriented skills; and
To make any course multidisciplinary in approach
