When the Learner Student remains absent/fails in the main Semester End Examination

SEMESTER END EXAMINATIONS: ELIGIBILITY TO APPEAR FOR ADDITIONAL SEMESTER END EXAMINATION:

A learner who does not appear, i.e. remains absent in some or all the courses on medical grounds or for representing the College / University in sports, cultural activities, activities of NSS, NCC or sports training camps conducted by recognized bodies / competent authorities or for any other reason which is considered valid under exceptional circumstances and to the satisfaction of the Principal or the Head of the Institute.

The learner who remains absent with the prior permission of the Principal of the College / Head of the Institution may be permitted to appear for the Additional Semester End Examination.

The additional Semester End Examination shall be of 2 ½ hour duration for 75 marks and 3 hour duration for 100 marks per course. The learner shall appear for the Semester End Examination of the course for which he/she was absent or has failed. Learners who are punished under O.5050 shall not be eligible to appear for this additional examination.

Also, a learner appearing for the repeat examination as ex-student may be permitted to appear for the additional Internal Assessment and Additional Semester End Examination conducted for the failed or the absent learner even if the learner does not register/appear at the regular examination conducted for such repeaters. For example, a regular learner of F.Y.B.Com. program of 2011-2012 under the SBCGS has failed in two courses after appearing for the regular and additional examination held in academic year 2011-2012 is now eligible to appear for the examination of the failed courses at the regular examination conducted along with the regular student of F.Y.B.Com. for the academic year 2012-2013. For some reason, this learner does not register for this regular examination. As he has not registered for the regular examination, the learner is not eligible to appear for the additional examination. Thus, losing a chance to appear for the examination and thereby losing a year, and hence to prevent the loss of academic year of such a student the student may be permitted to appear for the additional examination without registering for the regular examination.

It is not the right of the learner, who has failed or has remained absent, to appear for the additional examination without fulfilling the norms prescribed by the Head of the Institution / Department / Principal of the College.
