Bachelor’s Degree Programme (B.Sc.)
(Valid from 1st January, 2019 to 31st December, 2019) Please Note
You can take electives (56 to 64 credits) from a minimum of TWO and a maximum of FOUR science disciplines, viz. Physics, Chemistry, Life Sciences and Mathematics.
You can opt for elective courses worth a MINIMUM OF 8 CREDITS and a MAXIMUM OF 48 CREDITS from any of these four disciplines.
At least 25% of the total credits that you register for in the elective courses from Life Sciences, Chemistry and Physics disciplines must be from the laboratory courses. For example, if you opt for a total of 64 credits of electives in these 3 disciplines, at least 16 credits should be from lab courses.
You cannot appear in the Term-End Examination of any course without registering for the course. Otherwise, your result will not be declared and the onus will be on you.

We hope, you are familiar with the system of evaluation to be followed for the Bachelor’s Degree Programme. At this stage you may probably like to re-read the section on assignments in the Programme Guide that we sent you after your enrolment. A weightage of 30 percent, as you are aware, has been earmarked for continuous evaluation, which would consist of one tutor-marked assignment. The assignment is based on Blocks 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Instructions for Formatting Your Assignments
Before attempting the assignments, please read the following instructions carefully. 1 On top of the first page of your answer sheet, please write the details exactly in the following format:
COURSE CODE :
COURSE TITLE :
STUDY CENTRE : DATE
(NAME AND CODE)
PLEASE FOLLOW THE ABOVE FORMAT STRICTLY TO FACILITATE EVALUATION AND TO AVOID DELAY.
2 Use only foolscap size writing paper (but not of very thin variety) for writing your answers. 3 Leave 4 cm margin on the left, top and bottom of your answer sheet. 4 Your answers should be precise.
5 While writing answers, clearly indicate the Question No. and part of the question being solved. 6 Please note that:
i) The Assignment is valid from 1st January, 2019 to 31st December, 2019. ii) The response to this assignment is to be submitted to the Study Centre Coordinator within eight weeks of the receipt of this booklet in order to get the feedback and comments on the evaluated assignment.
iii) In any case, you have to submit the assignment response before appearing in the term end examination.
7 We strongly suggest that you should retain a copy of your assignment responses. Wishing you all good luck.
