Educational Qualification for admission in Engineering course
Candidate should have passed Higher Secondary School Certificate Examination (10+2) (or equivalent exam) scheme with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Candidate should have secured pass marks in these three subjects individually.
RGPV EXAMINATIONS SCHEDULE
There will be one University Examination at the end of each semester. In every year there will be two semesters and in total there will be four years consisting eight semesters. The semester examination (consisting of end semester of theory and practical) will generally be held in December and May in each year.
RGPV PROMOTION RULE
Promotion of students to the higher class will be done in accordance with the following rules:
A student who takes admission in odd semester of an academic year is said to be in A-B group (a student of A-B Group will take admission generally in July). A student who takes admission in even semester of an academic year is said to be in B-A group (A student of B-A Group will take admission generally in January).
A candidate who has taken admission in A-B Group (student will appear in odd sem exam) will be promoted to even semester of that year without consideration of failing in any number of subjects of odd semester.
To pass a particular subject of the course the minimum required grade is D. Theory and practical parts of the subject are treated as separate subjects.
RGPV SEM BACK RULE
A student who fails in more than five subjects (Theory and Practical of the same subject shall be treated as two subjects) in a particular year, shall not be promoted to the next higher year. Example: Suppose you are failed in 6 subjects of first year (First Sem + Second Sem), you will not be allowed to take exams of third semester. Thus your third sem will be back. You will be required to take the exams of back subjects (6 subjects) first. Still you are failed in 6 back subjects, you will not be allowed to take exams of fourth sem. Thus your fourth sem will also be back. Your third and fourth semesters are back and you will be a year back student. However, if you have cleared one subject out of 6 subjects, you will be allowed to take exams of fourth sem. You will become BA group student.
A student shall not be admitted in the fifth semester (Third year) classes if he/she has not fully passed the first year examination with minimum of CGPA of 5.0.
A student shall not be admitted in seventh semester ( Fourth year) classes if he/she has not fully passed first and second year exams with minimum CGPA of 5.0.
If a student has failed to score a minimum CGPA of 5.0 shall be permitted to improve requisite grade point by reappearing in maximum of three subjects (theory and practical of a subject shall be treated as separate subjects).
For the award of degree minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) required is 5.0.
A student who has taken admission in even semester under B-A Group (student will appear in even sem exam) will be promoted to next applicable odd semester without consideration of failing in any number of subjects of even semester.
AWARD OF CREDITS AND GRADES
The distribution of weightage /marks for theory and practical component is given below:
|Sr. No.||Perticulars||weightage %|
|1||Quizzes, assignments and regularity||10%|
|2||Mid – semester test||20%|
|3||End – semester Exam||70%|
|Sr. No.||Perticulars||weightage %|
|1||Lab work and performance, quizzes,
assignments and regularity
|2||End – semester examination||60%|
Practical training, and project work shall be treated as practical subjects.
In each semester, the institute will be required to conduct at least two mid semester tests for theory block.
Each student, registered for a course, shall be awarded grade by the concerned faculty / faculties for the specific subject/paper. The grades awarded to a student shall depend upon his continuous evaluation through performance in various examinations, assignments, quizzes, laboratory work, class work, mid semester test and regularity. The grades to be used and their numerical equivalents are as under :
Credit Based Grading System Marks Distribution
|Grade||%Marks range (based on
absolute marks system)
|Grade Point||Description of
|F||30 AND Below||0||Fail|
From the above table it is clear that passing marks are 31%. From this passing marks out of 70 is equal to 70x 31/100 = 21.7 which is 22 marks.
Link The Semester Grade Points Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
At the end of each even semester examination the grade sheet for students of A-B group (odd semester, for students of B-A group) shall also show CGPA till end of that semester. The final examination grade sheet at the end of final semester examination of the course shall also indicate CGPA, equivalent percentage marks and the division awarded.
A candidate appearing in seventh semester after eighth semester (B-A group) will not be issued any Grade Sheet or Provisional Certificate after eighth semester until he has passed all the semesters.
RGPV RULE FOR GRACE MARKS
Grace up to five marks can be given to the student for passing the examinations. The grace marks can be given in not more than two subjects (theory and practical of the same subject shall be considered as two separate subjects).
If the student is failing/missing distinction/missing first division by one mark, he / she will be given grace of one mark. This benefit will not, however, be available to a candidate getting advantage as mentioned above.
RULE FOR AWARD OF DIVISION
Division shall be awarded only after the eighth (Seventh semester for candidates of B-A group) and final semester examination based on integrated performance of the candidate for all the four years as per following details The conversion from grade to an equivalent percentage in a given
academic program shall be according to the following formula applicable.
rgpv cgpa to percentage can be calculated by Percentage of marks scored= CGPA Obtained x 10
