Photo 2.2. First Year Students in Classroom

  1. Evaluation System Followed:
    • Under graduate level: The students who have been offered a prescribed number of courses in each semester are evaluated for 100 marks, including 50% internal, 50 % external but in the courses where there is no practicals classes internal marks are evaluated out of 20 marks (mid term), remaining 80% marks are automatically allotted for external examination The total marks obtained in each course are converted to grade poit on a 10-point scale and the grade point average for all the courses are computed for each semester. A student is eligible to obtain his degree if gets a minimum Overall Grade Point Average (OGPA) of 5.5 out of 10.

The University publications like college prospectus, course syllabus, academic rules & regulations etc., are supplied to each of the student at the time of his/her admission to various degree programs. The annual report of the College containing Teaching, Research, Extension, Administrative and Student Welfare activities is prepared every year and sent to the University for compiling and inclusion in the Annual Report of the University. In addition, the college has brought out a printed brochure furnishing information about the college.

  • Faculty interaction for students development: In addition to regular courses offered by the teachers, special coaching classes are arranged for the benefit of final year students who aspire to take up ICAR’s- Junior Research Fellowship and IIT GATE examinations for perusing higher studies leading to M. Tech. Degree program. In this regard, teachers have been designated as group leaders for each of the disciplines like farm machinery power, soil water conservation, post harvest technology etc. who are entrusted with the responsibility of arranging special lectures by identifying the teachers/ scientists in the concerned subjects. The special coaching classes have two fold objectives, firstly to prepare the interested students for facing JRF examination, secondly to prepare the students for GATE examination. Model question papers similar to ICAR-JRF examination are prepared in each course and the students are taught the mode of answering the questions. In addition, coaching classes for comprehensive examination in each discipline are arranged by the concerned disciplines. Further, the students are advised about the Job opportunities in different Govt. and Private sectors and also trained them to take up competitive examinations. Some times, the campus interviews are conducted for providing certain jobs by the private organizations. In the ICAR JRF examination, 2002 our college was at first position in the country on the basis of successful candidates in JRF Ag. Engg. discipline.
