Criteria Not Met (CNM)

Students in all the Programmes except Ph.D are required to maintain a minimum modular grade point average (MGPA) of B-, i.e., 2.67 to pass in each module. For individual subjects, minimum passing grade would be C-, i.e., 1.67. For Ph.D minimum MGPA is B i.e., 3.00 to pass in each module and for individual subjects, the minimum passing grade would be C, i.e., 2.00.

In case a student has obtained the minimum passing grade in all papers of a module but MGPA is less than 2.67 for all programmes (3.00 for Ph.D) then the student has a CNM (Criteria Not Met) in that Module. How to meet the Criteria/ to improve on grades and get the required MGPA :

  • A student is allowed to resubmit assignments so as to get a minimum MGPA of 2.67. However, only students with CNM are eligible for resubmitting assignments for improvement. No re-registration fee will be applicable for students having CNM in a particular module.  These students should submit both assignments of the paper as given on website for the current session before 10th April/October on payment of Rs 150/- per assignment. The grades obtained for assignment will be intimated by first week of May/November.
  • If CNM is not cleared even after that, the students are advised to appear in June/December Examination with proper preparation. This special provision is made available to the students with CNM. Students may utilize this option after due consideration in order to clear the CNM. The Examination form should be submitted as per last dates and applicable fee. Ideally a student with CNM in any Module should repeat exam of subjects with low grades.
  • In case CNM is in last Module and Project Work has low grade, then the student may resubmit Project Report after incorporating faculty remarks and a DD of Rs 1000/- to meet the criteria.
    ”Students must note that on appearing in a paper or re-submission of assignments or resubmitting Project  to clear CNM, the best of the two grades will be considered”
