ISI Admission Test (PGDCA) Counselling FAQ

1) What are the Examination, Rules for Passing?

There are two examinations in each course in all programmes:
mid-semestral and semestral (final). The composite score in a course is a weighted average of the scores in the mid-semestral and semestral examinations, class tests, home-assignments, practical record-book, project work, etc. (announced at the beginning of the semester).

  • If the composite score of a student falls short of 45% in a credit course, or 35% in a non-credit course the student may take at most one back-paper examination to improve the score. The maximum score a student can secure in a back-paper examination is 45%. The maximum number of back-papers that can be taken in any given year of a programme is specified in the Students’Brochure.
  • If a student misses a mid-semestral or a semestral or a back-paper examination due to medical or family emergencies, there is a provision for a supplementary examination. The student can score at most 60% in the supplementary examinations to mid-semestral and semestral examinations, and at most 45% in the case of a back-paper examination.
