Each paper carries 100 marks and four credits. The marks for each paper are
divided as 50 internal and 50 external. Internal examinations comprise of
oral tests, quizzes, assignments, presentations or written tests. At the end
of the semester, each paper has a 50 marks written external examination. For
passing in each course, a candidate must obtain 40 per cent in the
