- BVRIT System of Education
BVRIT has adopted a continuous education system with two semesters in an academic year. Each semester is of 17-22 weeks which concludes with an Semester End Examination followed by a break, which is usually spent on industrial training / Internship and educational tour to meet the degree requirements.
The degree is awarded under Course Based Credit System. Each course has a well defined syllabus with specified number of credit hours for theory and practical classes. The research component also forms a part of the curriculum for postgraduate studies.
The credit hours are regulated as follows:
1. One credit hour of theory is one hour of class room teaching.
2. One credit hour of practical is two hours' of teaching in the laboratory/workshop.
Undergraduate Programme: The system of examination is partly internal and partly external. Besides, each student has to appear / submit assignment, presentation, quiz, surprise test etc as a part of Continuous Internal Evaluation
Postgraduate Programme: Examination system is partly internal and partly external. Besides, each student has to appear two midterm examinations as a part of Continuous Internal Evaluation
A student is evaluated for a course for both theory and practical, following Grade Point Average (GPA) system:
An undergraduate student is evaluated through Continuous Internal Evaluation and external Semester End Examination. He or she has to pass in external examination separately and Internal & External Exam taken together, both in theory and practical courses.
Postgraduate students have to pass in theory and practical examinations separately.
A student is declared pass only if he or she secures the following minimum Grade Points in each subject and SGPA on a scale of 10:
Undergraduate Examinations: 5.0 grade points in each subject and 5.0 in SGPA.
Postgraduate Examinations: 6.0 Grade points in each subject and 6.0 in SGPA.
As per UGC / AICTE guideline a student is eligible to write the Semester End Examinations only if he acquires a minimum of 75% of attendance in aggregate of all the courses.
- Supplementary Examinations
External Supplementary examinations are conducted in addition to Regular Semester End Examinations during the year. A student who has failed in regular Semester End Examination ( both theory and Practical) can take exams during supplementary examinations. A student can appear for any number of supplementary examinations till he clears all courses which he could not clear in the first attempt. However the maximum stipulated period cannot be relaxed under any circumstances.
- Grading Procedure
As a measure of the student’s performance the college follows the 10-point Absolute Grading System(as per UGC/AICTE guidelines) given below. A Letter Grade and grade points will be awarded to a student in each course based on his performance, as per the grading system and corresponding percentage of marks, shall be followed.
Letter Grade Grade Points %age of marks earned
10 90% and above
( ≥90% , ≤ 100%)
9 Below 90% but not less than 80%
( ≥80% , < 90%)
8 Below 80% but not less than 70%
( ≥ 70% , < 80%)
7 Below 70% but not less than 60%
( ≥ 60% , < 70%)
6 Below 60% but not less than 50%
(≥ 50% , < 60%)
5 Below 50% but not less than 40%
(≥ 40% , < 50%)
Below40% ( < 40%)
For an approximate final percentage of marks equivalent to the computed final CGPA, the following formula may be used.
% of Marks = (final CGPA – 0.5) x 10
