Examination and Method of Assessment
In every semester, seven papers will have both external and internal evaluation. Four core papers will have both external and internal evaluation for 60 and 40 marks respectively. Three elective courses carry external and internal evaluation for 45 and 30 marks respectively.
Inter Institute Credit Transfer and Integrated Disaster Management would be evaluated internally out of 100 and 75 marks respectively.
A student would be required to pass in each head (Internal and External) independently.
From the academic year 2007-08, Symbiosis International University has shifted to the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) system.
Every semester, students would be awarded the Grade Point Average where grades would be awarded based on the class average. The concept of minimum marks for passing therefore becomes irrelevant. A student would be required to consistently perform well.
For internal evaluation, there will be continuous assessment throughout the semester.
The external examination will be conducted at the end of each semester. The students will be required to comply with the formalities of the university regarding exams within the prescribed time.
