SCHEME OF INSTRUCTION AND EXAMINATION
The scheme of instruction and examination is followed as per the norms laid down by the affiliating Osmania University, which are released in the academic regulations. The following are as per the Academic Regulations for B.E. courses from A.Y.2018-19.

  1. Instruction in the various courses in each semester of all the four years shall be provided by theDean, Faculty of Engineering, Osmania University as per the Scheme of Instructions and SyllabiPrescribed. This is available in the following site: http://www.uceou.edu/DeanFE.html
  1. The distribution of marks for Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and the Semester EndExamination (SEE) shall be as follows:

Note: Semester End Examination (SEE) means University Examination.
Based on combined marks (i.e. CIE + SEE) obtained by the candidate Letter Grades areawarded and the corresponding Grade Points are shown in the Tablebelow:

* Out of 30 marks forContinuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) for Theory Course, 10 marks are allotted for Assignments /Quizzes etc. At least two Assignments and one Quiz are to be conducted.The rest of the 20 marks are allotted for internal test. Two Internal Tests will be conducted in each semester. Each test will carry 20 marks, out of which 6 marks are for Part-A consisting of objective and short answer questions and14marks are for Part-B consisting of subjective questions. Average of two tests plus marks obtained in assignments/quizzes etc., will constitute the marks obtained by individual candidate underCIE.
**       Out of 25 or 50 CIE marks for Practical or Drawing course, respectively, 10 or 20 areallotted for viva-voce examination and 15 or 30 marks are awarded for class performance, record andobservations, respectively.
+ The question paper for SEE, which carries 70 marks, will be in two parts, viz., Part-A and Part-B.

Part- B (50 marks) consist of five questions (long answer) covering all the units ofsyllabus.
#Out of 50 marks under CIE for project, 25 marks are awarded by the Guide/Supervisor and remaining 25 are awarded by the subject expert committee constituted by the concerned Head of the Department at the respectiveCollege.
##The evaluation of BE project for maximum of 100 marks will be done as per guidelines given below:

      1. 40 Marks are allocated for quality of the project workcovering
        1. Literature-review,
        2. innovation /Originality
        3. Methodologyand

  2. The medium of instruction and examination shall beEnglish.
  3. At the end of each semester, Semester End Examination shall be conducted as prescribed inthe respective Schemes of Examination. The examinations pertaining to the semester conducted immediately after the semester is termed as Main Examination and the examinations pertaining to the other semesters conducted thereafter will be called as SupplementaryExaminations.
  4. To enable- the B.E. Final Year students to complete the program requirements in time, there shall be a Make-up Exam, for VIII semester only, which will be scheduled within one month after publication of results of VIII semester (SEE) MainExaminations
  5. All the examination in Theory Course shall be conducted as written examination for duration as prescribed in the Scheme of Examination. The examination in Laboratory Courses shall be conducted as written and oral together by carrying out the experiments as required in the specificLaboratory Course for the specified duration. Laboratory record of experiments conducted during semester is also required to be produced at the semester end examination. For the Project work (mini or major), the related document (Report) is to be produced at the time of oralexamination.
  6. All the general rules for examinations shall be adheredto.
  7. A candidate shall be deemed to have fully passed a course (Theory/Practical), if he/she secures not less than the minimum marks/grade as prescribed. Minimum pass marks / grade in the University Examinations (SEE) plus CIE shallbe.

 

      1. EachTheorySubject                                          : 40% - EGrade
      2. Each Practical CourseandProject                     : 50% - DGrade
      3. Drawing Course treated aspractical/Labcourse     : 50% - DGrade

Important Note:  The candidate has to appear at the Semester EndExamination (SEE) inallthePractical/Laboratory/Drawing Courses compulsorily irrespective of marks secured underCIE.

    • If a candidate in any semester examination of the program fails to secure the minimum marks/grade in any subject, then he/she shall have to appear only in the failed course of the semester.

  • The Grade secured by the candidate will be shown in the Memorandum of Marks as per his/her performance both in SEE and CIE together and as per the norms indicated in clause 4.3 of the Academic Regulation.
  • A minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5 is required for the award of Degree. The consolidated memorandum of marks will reflect the Credits & Grade obtained by the candidates in all the course of B.E. Program.
 
Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) Calculations:

 

 

  • SGPA is calculated up to second decimalpoint
  • SGPA is calculated only when all subjects in that semester areCleared/Passed

 

  • CGPA at a given point of Semester is calculated up to second decimalpoint
  • CGPA is calculated only when total credits earned are equal to total credits prescribed as per the scheme, up to a semester in which the candidate has last appeared for Semester EndExamination(SEE).
