2.  Semester end Exam (50%)

2.11½hrs Zoology theory  (allotted 50 marks, converted to 35%)                                                      -35%

The question format includes three parts:

  • M.C.Q (10 Nos × 2 marks)                        
  • Short questions (2 Nos × 5marks)
  • Essays (2 Nos. × 10 marks)

2.2   2 hours Practical Exam (allotted 50 marks, converted to 15%)                                                 - 15%

                                                                                                                                                Total           - 100%

*The overall marks will be allotted as 50 continuous assessments + 35 Theory paper + 15

  Practical paper = 100 in zoology. This 100  will be divided by 2 to get final Zoology of  50.

The final marks of 50 Zoology and 50 Botany will be combined as 100 marks BIOLOGY.

3. Criteria for pass and fail

3.1.  Pass mark                      50   in Biology (Botany + Zoology)                      

3.2. Distinction mark           80  in Biology

3.3. Moderation mark          46   in Biology

3.4.  Fail mark                      below 46 in Biology (Botany + Zoology)

 If a student fails in Botany & Zoology, he or she will sit for supplementary examination in both  

  subjects.
