10. Last date for Submission of Assignments/Project: The dates for the
submission of the Assignments / Project Reports (by the students to LC) will
be decided by the HOD-Information Technology and will be put up on the
website www.smude.edu.in and www.edunxt.smude.edu.in, in such a
way that the Learning Centre is able to submit the IA/ Project marks to the
Office of Student Evaluation by the due date as specified in the Website
(www.smude.edu.in). The Assignments form a part of continuous
evaluation.
11. University Examination:
The University Examination will be conducted at designated examination
centres twice a year as under:

Session Session Commencement Examination


Spring Session February July /Aug same year
Fall Session August Jan/Feb subsequent year

The dates of the examination along with the detailed instructions will be
published well in advance on the website www.smude.edu.in.

11.1 University Question Paper Pattern


There will be only multiple choice questions (MCQs) in the University
Question Papers as per details given below:
Question Distribution Table:

Question Distribution Total


Credit Total Time
Part A Part B Part C Marks

4 40 20 15 2 hrs. 140
3 40 20 15 2 hrs. 140
2 20 11 7 1 hr. 70
Notes:
1. In general, MCQs are of three types, i.e. one mark, two marks & four
marks.
2. The mark distribution is based upon the complexity involved in the
question.
3. General time distribution for each type of question is as follows
-for a paper with 4 credits

Part A Part B Part C


1 mark 2 marks 4 marks
No. of Questions 40 20 15
Time (in min) / Question 1 min. 1 ½ min. 3 min.
Total Time 40 30 45

Grand total = 1 Hour 55 Minutes + 5 Minutes (for filling up the


forms/revision) = 2 hrs.
-for a paper with 2 credits
Part A Part B Part C
1 mark 2 marks 4 marks
No. of Questions 20 11 7
Time (in min) / Question 1 min. 1 ½ min. 3 min.
Total Time 20 16½ 21
Grand total = 57½ Minutes + 2½ Minutes (for filling up the forms/revision)
= 1 hr.
4. In special cases, modifications may be made based upon the subject
requirements.
5. There is no provision for revaluation essentially because the valuation is
done by scanning the answer sheet. The answer sheet is marked by the
student by darkening the appropriate circle to indicate the answer for a
question. The scanning process, which evaluates the student
performance, is 100% error free and hence there is no need for
revaluation.
However, it is appropriate to mention that the analysis of the answers
show the following as the main reasons for student‟s failure or for
scoring low marks in the Examinations:
a) In some cases students make mistakes in darkening the appropriate
columns; for example, while marking an answer for question No. 3,
the student wrongly darkens against the field for question No. 4. This
happens when due care is not taken to verify the appropriate column
for answering. Students are advised to take due care and mark the
answer sheet on question-to-question basis, instead of transferring
the answers in one lot at the final moment of the examination. This
practice is disastrous because it results in a chain of wrong answers.
b) In some cases, the students mark more than one answer by
darkening the additional circles. The scanning is programmed to
disregard these answers and hence the student loses marks.
c) The students are also advised to write correctly the data in the
answer sheet such as Roll No, Test Booklet No, Subject Code, and
Centre Code. The instructions given in the MCQ answer sheet for
these must be strictly complied with.

6. Clashing of subjects in case of Re-sitting: The schedule of


examinations is such that every student can appear for the subjects with
respect to two semesters, provided the combination of semesters is odd
and even. In some cases, students apply for re-sitting in subjects, which
clash with other papers in the schedule of the examinations. SUCH
STUDENTS ARE PERMITTED TO APPEAR ONLY IN ANY ONE OF
THE AFFECTED SUBJECTS. NO STUDENT WILL BE PERMITTED TO
APPEAR IN MORE THAN ONE SUBJECT IN A SCHEDULED
SESSION ON A PARTICULAR DAY. If the student appears or attempts
to appear in both papers, results of both papers will be declared as
NULL & VOID.
7. Reappearance: There is no provision for improvement of grading by
reappearance in the University Examinations or Internal Assessment,
once the student is declared as passed.

11.2 Minimum Passing Marks:


 In each paper, a student shall secure at least 35% marks in Continuous
Evaluation (Internal Assessment) and 35% marks in University
Examination, however, with an aggregate of 40% for pass.
 A student who fails in any one of the above (i.e. Continuous Evaluation
or University Examination) will be required to reappear in that
component only.
 The students must note that for re-appearing for IA, the students have to
fill in the Re-sitting Forms.
 In case a student scores 35 percent independently in both components,
but fails to score 40 percent aggregate, he/she will be considered failed.
Such students will have to appear either in both or in any one of the
components of their choice.

11.3 Classification of Successful Candidates:


A student‟s performance will be evaluated based on both Continuous
Evaluation and University Examination.

The Grade System (aggregate):

Grade Marks (%)


A – Excellent 70 and above
B – Very Good 60 – 69
C – Good 50 – 59
D – Satisfactory 40 – 49
E – Failure ––––––

11.4 Carry-over Provision: Please note that since there is a carry over
system for every semester, self-study should start automatically for the next
Semester without waiting for the examination result.
12. Examination and Result Publication:
 The University will conduct term-end examinations at designated
Examination Centres. The term-end examination centre, date of
examination and other related instructions of the examinations will be
published well in advance of the date of examination on the website
www.smude.edu.in.
 NO STUDENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO APPEAR FOR THE
EXAMINATION WITHOUT ADMIT CARD. Admit card is valid only when
accompanied with University photo ID card. Learning Centres are not
permitted to issue any authority letter for appearing in the examination.
Learning Centres should not withhold the admit cards of any student for
any reason.
 Admit Cards will be issued only to those students who fulfil the
prerequisites as specified by the University. (e.g., Admit Cards will be
issued to all Fresh and Re-Registered students and Re-sitting
Candidates, who have filled up the Re-sitting Form before the last date
specified by the University.) The Admit Card is valid only when produced
along with the Identity Card issued by the University.
 Candidates are not allowed to bring inside the Examination Hall, Mobile
Phones, calculators, statistical/scientific tables, lap top computers or
any object/device/gadget that would be of unfair assistance in answering
the University question papers. However, scientific/non-programmable
calculators are allowed for specific subjects (as mentioned in the time
table). Possession of Mobile phone, even in „Switched off condition‟ shall
be treated as unfair means. Hence, the students are strictly warned not
to bring Mobile phone with them inside the Examination Hall.
Examination Centres will not take any responsibility for the safe custody
of the mobile phone.
 Five Minutes prior to the commencement of the examination, the
candidate will receive the answer sheet. The candidate must ensure that
it is printed properly. The QP booklet will be provided just before the
start of the examination. Each QP booklet has a specific five-digit
booklet number printed on the front page of the booklet.
 On the front page of the answer sheet, the candidate is required to write
and/shade the Name (block capitals), Roll Number (nine digits) and QP
Booklet Number (five digits) legibly, in the spaces provided for the
purpose. On the answer sheet, the candidate should carefully write the
Roll Number and Test Booklet Number in numerals in appropriate boxes
using 2B pencil and completely blacken the corresponding circles. For
example, if the Roll Number is 001050001 and the Test Booklet Number
is 18960, the candidate shall write as follows:
Roll Number

 THE CANDIDATES SHOULD NOT exchange their QP booklets with


other candidates during the examination, under any circumstances.
 CANDIDATES WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE
EXAMINATION HALL AFTER TEN MINUTES OF THE
COMMENCEMENT OF EXAMINATION.
 Candidates are not allowed to leave the examination hall within 1 hour of
commencement of the examination.
 The identity and signature of the candidates will be verified during the
examination. Candidates are required to sign on the answer sheet in the
invigilator‟s presence.
 In the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), each question has only one
correct answer and must be indicated by completely darkening the
appropriate circle. Darkening of more than one circle will be regarded
invalid/improper. For example, if a student has selected D as the answer
to the given question, it should be entered in the correct manner as
indicated in the following example:

 The QP booklet can be used for rough work; but, no stray marks should
be left on the answer sheet. The candidate should not fold, bend, cut,
tear or otherwise deface/mutilate the answer sheet in any manner.
 Candidates must hand over the answer sheet and the QP booklet to the
invigilator before leaving the examination hall.
 Candidates caught cheating or attempting to cheat may be disqualified
immediately and debarred from appearing for University Examinations in
accordance with the prevailing rules of the University.
 The results will be published on the website www.smude.edu.in and
marks card shall be sent to the respective Learning Centres.
13. General Points:
 The University reserves the right to add/delete/change the syllabi,
programme structure, rules and regulations without any prior notice as
and when required and as per changes in environment. Students are
advised to visit the University website www.smude.edu.in, where all the
circulars and important information will be hosted from time to time.
 It is the endeavour of the University to upgrade the syllabus keeping in
view the industrial/market requirement so as to impart the latest
technology/developments to the students. It is, therefore, essential to
upgrade the study materials periodically. The students are advised to
keep themselves informed about the changes in the syllabus and the
contents of the courseware constantly by visiting the website
www.smude.edu.in, in addition to being in touch with LC in this regard.
It is important to note that the examinations will be conducted based on
the syllabus and contents applicable in that session. The implication is
that a student, who reappears/re-sits for back paper, will be required to
appear in the examination, which is based on the latest syllabus/content
of the courseware. It is, therefore, imperative that the student, who fails
in a subject, should submit his/her re-sitting application at the earliest to
enable the University to dispatch the new publication of the courseware
(only in case of change in courseware).
 All the payments shall be made by the students in the form of DD drawn
in favour of “Sikkim Manipal University, DE” payable at Manipal / Udupi
and with the Name, Roll Number and Centre Code written on the
reverse of the DD. The students are advised to retain the counter foil
and photocopy of the DD with them for their reference. Any payments
made by methods other than the above, shall be at the individual‟s own
risk. Fees once paid cannot be refunded.
 Legal Disputes, if any, shall come under the jurisdiction of Udupi
(Karnataka).
14. Final Semester Project Preparation and Submission Guideline
 Students must submit his/her project synopsis to the respective centre
along with his / her name & number, centre code & address etc., and get
it approved by them.
 Projects must be done individually.
 Must submit the final report within the stipulated time in the form of soft
and hard copy to the study centre.
 The University will evaluate projects of Sixth Semester B.Sc. – IT (Feb
2009) by conducting Final Semester Project Internal Examination
through internal & external examiner.
 Students must demonstrate their project at their study centre to the
internal & external examiner on the date specified by the university. The
date will be mentioned in the university term-end examination time table.
 Two sets of soft and hard copy must be submitted to the centres by the
students along with the source code and executable file. The same must
be submitted to the centre two week before the date of final semester
term-end examination.
