SESSION 2018-19 ONWARDS

Biotechnology is making immense contribution for the betterment of society. This professional course aims to provide experimental knowledge, analytical and conceptual skills to the learners in diverse areas like molecular biology, tissue culture, genetics, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, biochemistry, fermentation technology etc. The course opens many career options after its completion.

The course for the degree of Bachelor of Science  (Hons.) Biotechnology shall be spread over three academic years (B.Sc. Part-I, II and III) and six semesters. The examination for the first, third and fifth semester shall be held in the month of November/December and examination for the second, fourth and sixth semester shall be held in the month of April/May.

  1. The candidates who have passed 10+2 examination in Science stream (Medical & Non- Medical etc.) are eligible.
  2. Minimum eligibility requirement for admission in First semester is 45% marks in the 10+2 examination (Relaxation will be given to specific categories as per Govt. rules)
  3. The course will be based on Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) as per UGC guidelines.
  4. Credit is a unit by which course work is measured. One credit is equivalent to one hour of teaching or two hours of practical work per week.
  5. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA): It is a measure of overall cumulative performance of a student over all semesters. The CGPA is the ratio of total credit points secured by a student in various courses in all semesters and the sum of the total credits of all courses in all the semesters. It is expressed up to two decimal places.
  6. Grade Point:  It is a numerical weight allotted to each letter grade on a 10-point scale.
  7.  Letter Grade: It is an index of the performance of students in a said course. Grades are denoted by letters O, A+, A, B+, B, C, P and F.
  8. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA): It is a measure of performance of work done in a semester. It is ratio of total credit points secured by a student in various courses registered in a semester and the total course credits taken during that semester. It shall be expressed up to two decimal places.
  9. The Successful candidates shall be classified on the basis of 10-point grade following letter grades

Computation of SGPA and CGPA

 The UGC recommends the following procedure to compute the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA):

  1. The SGPA is the ratio of sum of the product of the number of credits with the grade points scored by a student in all the courses taken by a student and the sum of the number of credits of all the courses undergone by a student, i.e

SGPA (Si) = ∑(Cix Gi) / ∑Ci

 where Ci is the number of credits of the ith course and Gi is the grade point scored by the student in the ith course.

  1. The CGPA is also calculated in the same manner taking into account all the courses undergone by a student over all the semesters of a programme, i.e.

CGPA = ∑(Ci x Si) / ∑ Ci

               where Si is the SGPA of the ith semester and Ci is the total number of credits in that semester.

  • The SGPA and CGPA shall be rounded off to 2 decimal points and shall be reported in the transcripts.
