Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, Telangana, India has announced that CBCS system will be applicable to its affiliated colleges (non – autonomous) offering degree Program of study in Bachelor of Engineering / Technology. The program shall be a four years (eight semesters) programme divided into eight semesters, each semester having duration of 16 weeks.
Every Course will consist of specific Lecture-Tutorial-Practical (L-T-P) Schedule. Lecture and tutorial of one hour / week / semester each of any subject is assigned one credit. Practical of two hours / week / semester each of any subjects is assigned one credit.
The under graduate programme in B.Tech. will have a minimum period of four academic years (8 semesters), and a maximum period of eight academic years (16 semesters). Each semester is structured to provide 24 credits, totaling to 192 credits for the entire B.Tech. programme.
Each student shall secure 192 credits (with CGPA ≥ 5) required for the completion of the under graduate programme.
A student may be permitted to register for the subjects/ courses of choice with a total of 24 credits per semester (minimum of 20 credits and maximum of 28 credits per semester). However, a minimum of 20 credits per semester must be registered to ensure the ‘studentship’ in any semester.
JNTUH Evaluation – Distribution and Weightage of marks
Every subject / course (theory / practical / UG major project) will be evaluated for 100 marks as given below:
1) CIE (Continuous Internal Evaluation): 25 marks
2) SEE (Semester End-Examination): 75 marks
CIE For theory subjects: There shall be two mid-term examinations. Each mid-term examination consists of one objective paper, one descriptive paper and one assignment. The objective paper and the essay paper shall be for 10 marks each with a total duration of 1 hour 20 minutes (20 minutes for objective and 60 minutes for essay paper). Five marks are allocated for assignments.
The total marks secured by the student in each mid-term examination are evaluated for 25 marks, and the average of the two mid-term examinations shall be taken as the final marks secured by each student in internals / sessionals. If any student is absent from any subject of a mid-term examination, an on-line test will be conducted for him by the university.
SEE For theory subjects: The end semester examinations will be conducted for 75 marks consisting of two parts viz.
i) Part- A for 25 marks, all questions compulsory
ii) Part – B for 50 marks. Each question will have choice to answer.
CIE For practical subjects: Out of the 25 marks, day-to-day work in the laboratory shall be evaluated for 15 marks and internal practical examination shall be evaluated for 10 marks.
For the subject having design and/or drawing, (such as engineering graphics, engineering drawing, machine drawing) and estimation, there shall be two internal tests in a semester and the average of the two shall be considered for the award of marks for internal tests.
SEE for practical subjects: the semester end examination shall be conducted with an external examiner and the laboratory teacher. The external examiner shall be appointed from the clusters of colleges which are decided by the examination branch of the university.
For mandatory courses environmental science, professional ethics and gender sensitization lab, a student has to secure 40 marks out of 100 marks (i.e. 40% of the marks allotted) in the continuous internal evaluation for passing the subject/course.
For mandatory courses NCC/ NSO and NSS, a ‘satisfactory participation certificate’ shall be issued to the student from the authorities concerned, only after securing ≥65% attendance in such a course.
No marks or letter grade shall be allotted for all mandatory/non-credit courses.
ELIGIBILITY FOR PASSING
A student should secure not less than 35% marks in the semester end examination, and a minimum of 40% of marks in the sum total of the CIE (Continuous Internal Evaluation) and SEE (Semester End Examination) taken together; in terms of letter grades, this implies securing ‘C’ grade or above in that subject/ course. Thus Minimum passing marks are 26 out of 75 in theory SEE. However, minimum passing marks are 40 out of 100 in a subject including sessionals or internal marks.
In UG mini-project and seminar, a student should secure not less than 40% marks (i.e. 40 out of 100 allotted marks) in each of them. The student would be treated as failed, if student (i) does not submit a report on UG mini-project, or does not make a presentation of the same before the evaluation committee as per schedule, or (ii) does not present the seminar as required in the IV year I Semester, or (iii) secures less than 40% marks in UG mini-project/ seminar evaluations.
Student may reappear once for each of the above evaluations, when they are scheduled again; if student fails in such ‘one reappearance’ evaluation also, student has to reappear for the same in the next subsequent semester, as and when it is scheduled.
A student shall get ‘passed’ in a semester, if student secures a GP ≥5 (‘C’ grade or above) in every subject/course in that semester (i.e. SGPA ≥5.00 at the end of that particular semester); and a student shall get ‘passed’ in the entire under graduate programme, only when gets a CGPA ≥5.00.
The grades to be used and their numerical equivalents are as under :
JNTUH Choice Based Credit System CBCS Marks Distribution
A student getting ‘F’ grade in any subject means he is ‘failed’ in that subject and is required to reappear as a ‘supplementary student’ in the semester end examination, as and when offered. Internal marks will remain unchanged.
JNTUH PROMOTION RULE
There is no restriction for promotion from an odd semester to the next even semester if a student has undergone regular course of study of odd semester. However, the student should fulfill the attendance requirement.
Promotion from First year second semester to second year first semester: Must have secured at least 24 credits out of 48 credits i.e., 50% of credits up to first year second semester from all the relevant regular and supplementary examinations.
Promotion from Second year second semester to third year first semester: Must have secured at least 58 credits out of 96 credits i.e., 60% of credits up to second year second semester from all the relevant regular and supplementary examinations.
Promotion from Third year second semester to fourth year first semester: Must have secured at least 86 credits out of 144 credits i.e., 60% of credits up to third year second semester from all the relevant regular and supplementary examinations.
A student shall register for all subjects covering 192 credits as specified and listed in the course structure, fulfills all the attendance and academic requirements for 192 credits, ‘earn all 192 credits’ by securing SGPA ≥5.0 (in each semester) and CGPA (at the end of each successive semester) ≥5.0 to successfully complete the under graduate programme.
After securing the necessary 192 credits as specified for the successful completion of the entire under graduate programme, the student can avail exemption of two subjects up to 6 credits, that is, one open elective and one professional elective subject or two professional elective subjects for optional drop out from these 192 credits earned; resulting in 186 credits for under graduate programme performance evaluation, i.e., the performance of the student in these 186 credits shall alone be taken into account for the calculation of ‘the final CGPA (at the end of under graduate programme, which takes the SGPA of the IV year II semester into account)’ , and shall be indicated in the grade card of IV year II semester. However, the performance of student in the earlier individual semesters, with the corresponding SGPA and CGPA for which grade cards have already been given will not be altered.
A student detained in a semester due to shortage of attendance, may be re-admitted when the same semester is offered in the next academic year for fulfillment of academic requirements.
A student detained due to lack of credits, shall be promoted to the next academic year only after acquiring the required academic credits. The academic regulations under which student has been readmitted shall be applicable to him.
JNTUH CBCS ATTENDENCE RULES
A student has to acquire a minimum of 75% of attendance in aggregate of all the subjects/ courses (excluding attendance in mandatory courses Environmental Science, Professional Ethics, Gender Sensitization Lab, NCC/NSO and NSS) in order to write SEE for that semester.
Shortage of attendance in aggregate up to 10% (65% and above, and below 75%) in each semester may be condoned by the college academic committee on genuine and valid grounds, based on the student’s representation with supporting evidence and condonation fee.
Shortage of attendance below 65% in aggregate shall in no case be condoned and student shall get detained.
JNTUH CBCS CONVERSION OF GRADES INTO PERCENTAGE
Students can find percentage from grades using following formula:
[CGPA Earned – 0.5] x 10= Percentage of marks scored.
Example: [CGPA Earned 7.2 – 0.5]x 10 = 67.0%
