Several initiatives are in place to address the genuine grievances of the students and to facilitate them to complete their programs of study without loss of time. These include re totaling, revaluation, Special Examinations, Betterment Examinations, Repeat Continuous Evaluation etc.
Assessment is carried out through a ten point Grade System; Choice Based Credit System is introduced with effect from the academic year 2015-16. The Directorate also attends the task of conducting the annual Convocations.
