Procedure for condonation of absence shall be as under:-
Each course shall ordinarily be of 100 marks. For evaluation, the overall structure of the distribution of marks in a theory-based course shall be such that 30 marks are allotted to various assessments during the semester, while 70 marks shall be allotted for the end semester examinations. The End Semester Examinations shall ordinarily be conducted in the last week of November/April or on such dates may be fixed by the University. The academic performance of a candidate shall be evaluated in respect of the courses of study prescribed for each semester through the examinations held for respective semesters.
The system of evaluation would be as per details given under:-
The following shall be guidelines for project evaluation:
The marks obtained by students in End Semester examination shall be displayed on the notice board. The students may see the evaluated answer-scripts within ten days of the display of awards on the notice board for the semester by contacting the teacher concerned. Thereafter, within a week, all the answer books along with the statement of marks shall be sent by the examiner to the Office of the Controller of Examinations for declaration of the results.
If any student is not satisfied with the clarification to the queries given by the teacher-in-charge to a student regarding evaluation of the examined scripts of End-Term Examination, he may apply within notify period to the Controller of Examination for the review of the concerned examined script. The Controller of Examination may allow the review of such examined script on payment of Rs. 300/- (Rupees three hundred only) per script.
The concerned examined script shall be reviewed by an Expert nominated by the Vice-Chancellor on the recommendation of the concerned Head of the Department.
The credits, unless otherwise specified for B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) shall be five for each courses. The number of credits along with grade points that the student has satisfactorily completed measures the performance of the student. Satisfactory progress of a student is subject to his/ her maintaining a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), as well as minimum grades in different courses of the programme. A certain number of credits, that may be specified by the Academic Council from time to time, must be earned by the student to qualify for the degree.
Credits of a course shall be assigned in the following manner:
Each course shall carry a weightage of ‘5’ credits unless otherwise specified by the academic council. The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) will be the weighted average of the grade points. If the grade points of the letter grades awarded to a student in five courses are denoted by g1, g2, g3, g4. g5, and the weights of the courses by w1, w2, w3, w4, w5 respectively, the SGPA will be computed as follows:
|SGPA=||w1g1 + w2g2 + w3g3 + w4g4 + w5g5+........|
|w1 + w2 + w3 + w4 + w5+.........|
The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) will be used to describe the overall performance of a student up to and including the latest semester. It will be computed in a similar manner from the grade points of all the grades the student has received since his beginning of the course.
w1g1 + w2g2 + w3g3 +.....
|w1 +w2 +w3+......|
|Marks Range (Out of 100)||Grade||Grade Point|
|90 -100||O (Outstanding)||10|
|80 – 89||A (Distinction)||9|
|70 – 79||B (Very Good)||8|
|60 – 69||C (Good)||7|
|50 – 59||D (Fair)||6|
|40 – 49||E (Average)||5|
|00 – 39||F (Fail)||0|
The F grade denotes poor performance, i.e., failing in the course. A student has to appear at subsequent examination(s), if provided under the regulations in all courses in which he/she obtains "F" grade, until a passing grade is obtained.
A candidate may not be admitted into examination room unless he/she produces his/her admit card to the officer conducting the examination or satisfies such officer that it shall be subsequently produced.
The Controller of Examinations may, if satisfied that an examinee’s admit card has been lost or destroyed, grant duplicate admit card on payment of a further fee of Rs. 50/-
All the candidates who have put in the minimum percentage of attendance for appearing at the Examination and have filled in the examination form in time for appearing at the End Semester Examination shall be allowed to appear at the respective examinations. However, students who have not put in the minimum percentage of attendance or did not fill up the examination form in time in a Semester shall be allowed to take re-admission in that Semester.
There shall be no supplementary examination for students of Ist to VIIIth semesters. However, there shall be a provision of supplementary examination for IXth and Xth semesters after declaration of the result of Xth Semester. Students failing in courses of IXth and Xth semesters may appear in supplementary examination(s) or subsequent main examination(s)
The candidates who have taken admission in B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) programme First Semester in a session can be put in the following two categories on the basis of their attendance in the Semester:
Those who did not put in the required minimum percentage of attendance for appearing at the I-Semester Examination or did not fill up examination form in time for appearing at the I-Semester Examination.
Candidates under Category 10.(i)(a-i) are eligible for appearing at the examination of I-Semester, while candidates under Category 10.(i)(a-ii) are not allowed to appear at the examination of the Semester. However, category 10.(i)(a-ii) candidates are allowed to reappear at the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) of subsequent year(s) for seeking admission afresh subject to the fulfillment of other eligibility requirements. This implies that no readmission is permissible to those who do not put in the required percentage of attendance for taking the examination or did not submit the examination form in time.
All students who have put in the minimum percentage of attendance in III-Semester and filled in the examination form in time and shall be promoted to IV Semester.
Failed candidates shall not be promoted to the VII Semester. However, they shall be promoted to the VII semester when they become eligible to come under the category of either ‘Passed’ or ‘Promoted’ as explained above after passing the Failed papers in the subsequent available examinations as ex-students.
After declaration of results of IX & X Semesters, a candidate can be put in the following two categories:
Such failed students may clear their failed courses in subsequent examinations as ex-students. There shall be a provision of supplementary examinations for IX and X Semesters after declaration of results of X Semester. Students failing in courses of IX and X Semesters may appear in the supplementary examination or subsequent main examination(s).

|(iii)||Second Division||:||CGPA 5.0 and above, but below 6.5|
|(iv)||Third Division||:||CGPA 4.0 and to 4.9|
Note: The SGPA and CGPA shall be computed upto 2 places of decimals (truncated at the second place).
The conversion formula for converting CGPA to the corresponding Percentage of Marks will be as follow:
X = 10 Y - 4.5
where, X = Percentage of Marks
Y = CGPA
