Vice Chancellor’s Message
uman Resource development and higher education in India are focused on access to a large number of aspiring students to undergo higher education with quality and affordability. As one of the Central Universities, Pondicherry University has facilities and amenities to students to stay and study a wide range of 157 programmes. The main campus located at Puducherry has a lush green tropical evergreen forest along the east coast of India bordered with the Bay of Bengal. The University has established two more campuses to offer P.G. Courses and Doctoral programmes, one at Karaikal (UT of Pondicherry) and the other at Port Blair (UT of Andaman and Nicobar Islands). The University has excellent ambience for higher studies, research and cultural exchange. It has nineteen hostels, networked Wi-Fi campus, support services. Scholarships and freeships are provided to help deserving students to pursue their education and research. The modern laboratories, library with electronic access to over 27,000 Journals and e-resources, conference halls, play fields, health centre, placement and other services such as free buses to reach the University, eco friendly commutation in campus by electric cars & bicycles are


a few to mention. The University offers many inter-disciplinary courses in Arts, Pure and Applied Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Commerce, Management, Education, Electronic Media, Environment, Nano sciences, Green technology, Performing Arts and Computer science through Choice Based Credit System. Expansion, Excellence with Equity is the punch line and thrust of the University. A large number of national and international conferences and seminars are held. Recently, the University has taken a big leap ahead with expansion of teaching departments, infrastructure, research facilities with an ultimate objective of 400% expansion of the student, teacher and scholar strength by the end of 2011-12. There will be 450 faculty spread over 14 schools. The University is conscious that with increasing inter disciplinary nature of job opportunities available globally, it is inevitable for any student to cross the borders of his specialized field & learn more in allied fields, to make himself adaptable to the changing scenarios. To fulfill their need, the University has started 22 P.G. Diploma programmes, 8 foreign language and 2 Indian language certificate courses thus providing them add-on options in various relevant disciplines. For example, a student of ‘Master in Social Work’ can

now possess two additional P.G. Diploma in Industrial Psychology and Labour Laws, which will add immense value to his/ her employability. Similarly any student in Bio-sciences will now have an option to add a P.G. Diploma in Biotechnology which is currently in great demand. All the Add-On courses are also made open to the local population of Puducherry enhancing their access to higher education. 5 Basic Clinical P.G. Programmes are offered jointly by the University and Affiliated Medical Colleges from this academic year. The University believes in affirmative action to promote inclusiveness in higher education. Several concessions such as Free Education including hostels to physically challenged, free accommodation to girl students, subsidised mess for "below creamy layer" sections are a few to mention. Over 41,000 aspirants wrote the entrance in 2010, and the campus has students from 31 states of the country. We welcome overseas students for a semester or a full two year programme. We welcome you to India's fastest growing Central University during the XI plan.

The students can take any course offered in any department as long as they fulfill the prerequisites for that course. The students can also take as many courses as they can handle subject to a maximum of 30 credits in any semester. Each course is associated with a credit value and this accrues to the student when he/ she successfully completes the course. The minimum credits required for the award of degree in various PG Programs are given in the following table.


Program M. A./ M.Sc./ All M.Tech. except M.Tech (Nano Science & Technology) and M.Tech (Electronics)/ any other 2 year P.G. Programme not mentioned below M.Com., M.A. Economics All M. B.

Letter Grades
Performances of students in each paper are expressed in terms of marks as well as in Letter Grades. In case of fractions the marks shall be rounded off to nearest integer. The class interval for the purpose of awarding the grades can be arrived at by dividing the difference between the highest mark secured and the minimum pass mark by 6 as there are six passing grades. The formula is given below: K = (X-50)/6 Where, K = class interval, X= the highest mark in the subject. The grades may be awarded as given in the following table.



Range of Marks in % X to (X-K) (X-K-1) to (X-2K) (X-2K-1) to (X-3K) (X-3K-1) to (X-4K) (X-4K-1) to (X-5K) (X-5K-1) to (X-6K) Below 50

Letter Grade A+ A AB+ B C F

Points for Calculate of CGPA 10 9 8 7 6 5 0

K should not be rounded off to less than two decimal places. The numbers given in Range of Marks column, (X-K), (X-2K), (X-3K), etc., can be rounded off to the nearest whole number. In courses where the number of students who have secured 50 marks and above is less than 10 then grading may be given based on the Table below Range of Marks in % 81-100 71-80 66-70 61-65 56-60 50-55 Below 50 Letter Grade A+ A AB+ B C F Points for Calculate of CGPA 10 9 8 7 6 5 0

The GPA and CGPA will be calculated as weighted average of points secured by the student in all the papers registered by him / her. The weights are the number of credits for each paper. For example, a student getting in A grade in 4 credit course, A- grade in 2 credit course, A+ grade in a 3 credit course and F grade in a 3 credit course will have a GPA as (9x4 + 8x2 +10x3 + 0x3)/ (4+2+3+3)=(36+16+30+0)/12=82/12 = 6.83 out of 10.0; GPA = 6.83. The CGPA shall also be calculated in similar lines taking all subjects taken by the students in all semesters. Students with a CGPA of 9.0 and above and did not fail in any of the courses taken by him/ her shall be awarded Distinction. A CGPA of 6.0 and above shall be placed in First class. Student who has secured less than 50% marks in any paper gets F Grade and he is treated as failed in that paper.
