Amity University follows a Semester System which is in accordance to globally benchmarked practices and standards. The duration of the Course curriculum of one year is broken down into two semesters i.e.,17-18 weeks each. This system encourages superior interaction between faculty members and students and also results in creation of more meaningful term paper and research assignments.
Internal Evaluation System
Regular Examinations & Evaluations are the most important mechanisms to judge the academic performance and progress of the students. At Amity, students are assessed periodically with 30% weightage being ascribed to continuous/internal assessment in a semester. The assessment is done basis 3-4 evaluation components with pre-defined weightages. It consists of Class Test, Viva, Quiz, Case Discussion / Presentation / Analysis, Home Assignment, Project, Seminar, Term Paper, and Attendance among other.
The level of students' academic performance as the aggregate of continuous assessment and end term examination is represented by letter grades on a Ten Point Scale. Letter grades (A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, F) have points related with them in quantified hierarchy and have qualitative meaning. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) are evaluated upon the students' performance in Semester(s), & overall respectively.
Amity University follows Absolute Grading as well as Relative Grading depending upon the student strength in a specific programme & batch. Students must maintain minimum SGPA & CGPA to pass a semester/promote to the next semester and qualify for Degree/Diploma.
Every student in Amity University must mandatorily achieve 100% attendance in all the Lectures, Tutorials, Practicals and Seminars arranged for the relevant course during the semester. However, a moderation up to a maximum of 25% is granted in case of eventualities. A minimum of 75% attendance is obligatory to appear in the examinations. 100% attendance criteria inspire academic excellence, better disciplines and overall growth of the student.
