As part of the Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA), SCC conducts two examinations in each semester. While the first is of one and a half hour duration, the second is an internal assessment cum preparatory examination in view of the end semester university examination, for a duration of three hours. These exams are conducted strictly in conformity with the University pattern (in terms of question papers, evaluation practices, seating arrangements, timetable etc.).
The pass mark for each subject is 40%. To compute the IA grades, equal weightage is given to both the internal exams. Information with regard to the performance in CIA is communicated to the parents and wards. These are also made available on the college website to enable parents and guardians to monitor and keep track of their ward’s progress and performance.
After the first exam, Progress Report indicating the marks and term attendance will be dispatched to the parents/guardians. The parents/guardians are required to sign the progress report and return the same to the Class Mentors during the parents’ meet organized a couple of weeks after the first internal assessment examination.
The scheduled dates of the CIAE are announced in the college calendar. The time table is announced at least 10 days ahead of the commencement of the examination. Attending the CIAE is mandatory. Prior permission needs to be taken from competent authorities to be absent for the internal examinations. In addition to the centralized exams, there are class tests organized by the departments for the continuous evaluation of students.
