Amity University follows a Semester System which is in conformity with the global practices and standards. The Course curriculum of one year is taught into two semesters i.e., 17-18 weeks each. Semester system promotes greater interaction between faculty members and students and also permits more meaningful term paper and research assignments.
The course syllabus is regularly examined and evaluated by an expert committee as per the industry requirements. For this, many points are considered such as feedback reports on the placements, employability of the passed out students, latest developments in the technology, statutory compliances of various bodies etc. The revised course curriculum is then reviewed by Board of Studies of the institution for recommendations to Academic Council for approval.
The level of students' academic performance as the aggregate of continuous evaluation and end term examination is reflected by letter grades on a Ten Point Scale. Letter grades (A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, F) have points associated with them in quantified hierarchy and have qualitative meaning. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) are calculated based on 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 particular programme & batch. Students are required to maintain minimum SGPA & CGPA to pass a semester/promote to the next semester and qualify for Degree/Diploma.
At Amity, every student is required to achieve 100% attendance in all the Lectures, Tutorials and Practicals and Seminars during the semester; to ensure academic excellence, disciplinary approach and growth of the student. A minimum of 75% attendance is required to appear in the examinations. However, in case of contingencies, a relaxation up to a maximum of 25% is granted.
Right from the inception of Amity University, Quality Assurance & Enhancement has been a thrust area. A team of experienced professionals ensure that the best systems are implemented in all departments and all areas of the University.
This division also monitors the implementation and continuous improvements of academic syllabus.
