Contact Classes

The contact classes would be arranged for each subject in the beginning of each semester to give orientation on the subjects to be covered in that semester

The contact classes would be conducted at least for five continuous days as residential in the SWMTS campus. Food and accommodation would be arranged by the seminary during those days at students cost at Rs. 300/day. Attendance in the contact classes is compulsory as it merits 10% of marks for each subject which adds the chance of qualifying the final examination. Travel expenses and arrangements must be made by individual students.

Assignments

There would be two assignments covering the whole content of each subject which should be submitted to the Extension Education Department (EED) on quarterly basis for evaluation. Each assignment merits 15% of marks if found reasonably good in content and presentation, during evaluation.

Examination

The semester examination would be conducted at the end of each semester as per the time table and the answer paper would be evaluated by the concerned faculty. Each subject carries 60% of marks.

The candidate should score a minimum of 50% marks out of 100 in each subject compulsorily to qualify the concerned subject.

TStudy Materials

In order to effectively help each student with education, necessary study materials would be made available. Nevertheless, as far as possible they should purchase few source books of their own in the course of their study.

Matters to be noted

The student can complete the degree within three years in the normal course. However, one can be permitted to complete within a maximum period of five years, provided the student remits an extension fee of Rs. 500 per year.
