Extended or permanent exclusion can be effected through appropriate procedures of the college.
  2. Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited.
Attendence Requirements
  • No candidate shall be eligible to appear the university examinations unless he/she fulfills the minimum attendance requirements.It is, therefore, in the interest of the students to follow attendance rules strictly and attend all classes, tutorials and practicals if they don’t want to be denied admission tickets(University Roll no. for the final examination)
  • Applications for leave on medical grounds, countersigned by a parent /guardianand duly supported by a medical certificate, must be submitted within two weeks of returning to College; thereafter such applications shall not be accepted.

    Attendance record is taken into account as a parameter for awarding scholarships and prizes.The rules for minimum attendance requirements are as follows:

  1. In case of science subjects, each student is required to attend at least 2/3 of total lectures delivered and 75% of total practical sessions held during the entire academic year.
  2. In case of Honours subjects, the requisite attendance of 2/3 of total lectures delivered shall be required in the main subjects as well as in each of the Subsidiary / Qualifying subjects taken separately
  3. In case of B. Sc Programme, 2/3 of lectures shall be required in each of the three science subjects as well as in each of the Qualifying subjects.
  4. Attendance records will be put-up on the notice boards after each term. NO STUDENT will be issued the University admission tickets in case he/she is short of attendance.


The College is very strict about attendance. The students are advised to attend classes regularly if they do not want to be denied Admission Ticket (Roll number) for the final examinations. In 2011 we had to deny 31 students permission to appear in the Annual examinations due to shortage of attendance.


 

Internal Assessment

25% of the maximum marks in each paper (excluding subsidiary and qualifying papers) are assigned for the internal assessment and the remaining 75% marks for the Semester university examination. Internal Assessment marks are shown separately in the mark-sheet issued by the University and these marks are added to the Semester examinations marks for determining the division of the student.

The Internal Assessment marks will be broadly devided as follows:

Written assignment/tutorials /project reports /term papers/seminars: weightage 20%

Attendance: Weightage 5 %

The credit for regularity in each paper, based on attendance in lectures and tutorials, shall be as follows:

More than 67% but less than 70% 1 mark
70% or more but less than 75% 2 marks
75% or more but less than 80% 3 marks
80% or more but less than 85% 4 marks
85% and above 5 marks

Please note that as per the guidelines of the University of Delhi all Medical certificates will be excluded while calculating credit towards marks in the internal assessment scheme even though such certificates shall continue to be taken into account for the purpose of calculating eligibility to appear for examinations[Ordinance VII.2.(9)(a)(ii)]. The internal assessment scheme of students pursuing self-financed courses such as Biomedical Sciences and Computer Sciences follow a different pattern, the details of which are given in the subject profile.
