Semester system of examination will be followed under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) according to the guidelines of Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) and Adikavi Nannaya University(AKNU), Rajamahendravaram.
Two consecutive (one odd + one even) semesters constitute one academic year in the three year degree course. External theory and practical (if applicable) examinations will be held at the end of every semester. There will be internal assessment for all subjects except for foundation courses and practical examinations. The internal (25 Marks) and external (75 Marks) assessment marks are divided in the ratio 25:75. The internal assessment will be carried out by the way of conducting two Mid-semester theory examinations for 20 marks each (1hr duration) and average of these two examinations will be taken as internal assessment marks out of 20. The remaining five marks will be awarded for student assignments. The total marks for each paper which are having no internal assessment component are 50. The student must possess a minimum of 75% of attendance in each subject in every semester to be eligible to appear for the semester end examination. The time duration of examination for foundation courses is 2hrs whereas for practical examinations and other theory examinations, it is 3hrs.
The pass minimum for foundation courses and practical examinations is 40% (i.e., 20 out of 50). The pass minimum for the other external examinations which are having internal assessment component is 35%. But, the pass minimum is 40% for each subject on combining both internal and external assessment marks. There is no pass minimum for examinations of internal assessment. According to the proceedings of the Vice-Chancellor, Adikavi Nannaya University, No.ANUR/Conc. In U.G./2015 dated 15/10/2015, the pass percentage for Blind, Deaf and Dumb students in the external examinations is reduced from 35% to 25%.
