o For passing the semeter, the aggregate marks must be at least 45% in theory & Computer Lab groups separately.

o For the purpose of award of merit or division the marks obtained in theory and practical groups of all semesters together shall be considered.

o To avoid obsolescence the subject 5BCA3, 5BCA4 and 5BCA5 will be changed from year to year, and will be announced at the time of commencement of semester IV.

Strict standards would be maintained, to ensure quality.

Since computing is an applied field, it has been decided to increase the weightage of computer labs to 40% of the theory. Thus each student will have 5 theroy and 2 practical courses in each semester, except for the last semester, which would be wholly devoted to a project.
