Indian Institute of Information Technology Sri City, Chittoor
UG Regulations (Revised)
The institute offers B.Tech degree in two programs – Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE). The B.Tech degree is a residential program. The degree requirements will be specified in terms of minimum total credits to be earned, as well as minimum credits to be earned in specific areas. Details of these are given later, and is important while giving options for electives. These requirements are to make the programs flexible, in which the students can choose courses depending on their differing interests, as long as they satisfy the minimum requirement.
The prominent features of the credit system are the process of continuous evaluation of a student's performance, the absence of pass or fail on an annual or semester basis and the flexibility to allow the students to progress at a pace suited to individual ability and convenience, subject to the regulations of credit and pre-requisite requirements.
Each course has a certain number of credits assigned to it depending on its lecture, tutorial and laboratory contact hours in a week plus the time expected to be spent by the student outside formal contact hours in a week. Each course is coordinated by a member of the faculty of the course called the course instructor (also called instructor-in-charge). He/she has the full responsibility for conduct of the course, coordinating the work of the other members of the faculty involved in that course, holding the test and awarding the grades. In case of any difficulty the student is expected to approach the course instructor for advice and clarification. Sometimes, more than one member of the faculty can be jointly responsible for the course, in which case they are jointly the course instructors.
A letter grade with a specified number of grade points is awarded in each course for which a student is registered. A student's performance is measured by
(1) The number of credits that a student has earned, and
(2) A minimum number of credits that should be acquired in order to qualify for a degree by the weighted grade point average maintained by the student.
2.1.1 Number of Credits in a Course
For each course L-T-P-C are shown as follows:
For each course L-T-P-C are shown as follows:
L (Lecture Hours): Number of lecture hours per week
T (Tutorial Hours): Number of tutorial hours per week
P (Practicals/Laboratory Hours): Number of laboratory hours per week
C (Credits): Credits for course
Credits reflect the number of hours a student must work per week inclusive of contact hours. For a course with 4 credits, a student would have to put in about 12 hours of work per week. For example, L-T-P-C of 3-1-3-4 for a course implies – 3 hours of lecture 1 tutorial hour, 3 formal laboratory hours with a total of 4 credits.
2.1.2 Audit Courses
An audit course is one in which the student attends classes, does the necessary assignments, takes exams. However, the arrangement is between the instructor and the student. Such a course does not appear in his/her final grade card.
2.2 GRADING SYSTEM
2.2.1 Award of Grades
The grade awarded in a course for which the student is registered, will be based on performance in quizzes, tutorials, laboratory work, and home assignments, etc. as applicable, in addition to mid-semester exams and the final semester examination for the course. Typically, there will be two mid-semester examinations and one end-semester exam with suitable weightages for exams, quizzes, home assignments, laboratories, and tutorials. However, the instructor is free to conduct and assign weightages to the exams as well as term papers, open book exams, special laboratory exercises, solving open problems, in the manner he/she deems fit. The course, especially those of 3rd and 4th year may or may not even have final exams. The distribution of weightage should be decided and announced by the course instructor, in the beginning of the course, so that the students are aware of the evaluation mechanism to be followed in the course. The grades that can be awarded, and their equivalent numerical points, are listed below.
2.2.2 Grade and their Numerical Points
There are seven grades that reflect performance and carry points which are used in computation of grade point average (GPA):
The other grades that do not carry points and are not used in computation of GPA are:
P/F - Pass/Fail
I - Incomplete (grade to be assigned later)
W - Withdrawn
2.2.3 Earned Credits
The credits for the courses in which a student has cleared ('P' or a higher grade) will be counted as credits earned. In addition, PCO courses with 'P' grade, and project and thesis courses with 'S' grade, if any, as per the regulation regarding specified maximum, are also counted.
2.2.4 Description of Grades
The evaluation is generally Norm Referenced; however, the instructor may modify it for very good or very bad overall performance by the class as a whole. A student is required to repeat all core (institute core and programs core) courses in which he/she obtains an F grade. This has to be cleared in the next semester/academic year. Since the courses follow a continuous evaluation mechanism, a student has to attend and repeat the whole course.
At that time, he/she can also take courses of the next higher class, provided the prerequisite conditions are satisfied and the time-table permits this to happen. For the remaining failed courses (BCs and Electives), the student can take the same or substitute courses, as advised by the faculty advisor. It is to be noted that the F grades may result in an increased period of stay for completing degree requirements. Further, the F grades secured in any course stay permanently on the grade card, and they are included in the evaluation of the grade point average for that semester (SGPA). Once the failed course or equivalent course is cleared, the CGPA does not include the failed course grade.
2.3 Promotion/probation rules for UG1 students.
- Students have to register for all courses in their 1st and 2nd semesters.
- Completion of a course implies; a student obtains a minimum of ‘P’ grade in the respective course.
- Students who have obtained F grade in any course(s) must complete the prescribed course(s) through Formative assessment.
At the end of the first year:
- In order to continue the program and to be promoted to 2nd year, the following two conditions should be met:
a) A student should have successfully completed a minimum of 50% of the prescribed credits for the 1st year; and
b)Students should have a CGPA >= 4.0 (inclusive of new grades obtained through formative assessment).
- Students not meeting the above two requirements are not promoted to second year. They have an opportunity to continue the program by registering as a fresh student in 1st year.
Details on Formative Assessment – UG1:
1) Students who have F grade(s) must opt for formative assessment immediately after announcement of 1st semester results and complete before end of the subsequent semester.
2) Students have to meet the faculty on a scheduled basis and should follow the assessment process.
3) Generally, there will be no classes as such, but students will receive the necessary guidance to complete the course.
4) Students should give the exams/assignments/quizzes etc. as per the evaluation schedule for assessment as per the original components of the course.
5) Faculty would award marks for each of the evaluation items and would give a grade to the student at the end of completion of all the components successfully.
6) The grade is awarded based on the average of marks obtained in the regular course and formative assessment.
7) A student can take only one formative assessment. If the student fails in the formative assessment, then he/she has to repeat the entire course in the regular mode.
8) Length of the Formative assessment is from the date of announcement of results and before the end of next semester.
From 3rd Semester onwards:
1) A student with CGPA less than 5.0 is automatically on probation.
After fulfilling all credit requirements:
1) The minimum CGPA requirement for graduation is 5.0.
I Grade: This refers to an incomplete grade which is required to be converted to a regular grade. This grade is awarded when a student has not fulfilled all the requirements for the course, on account of extraordinary circumstances, subject to having fulfilled attendance requirements (described later). The student must complete the requirements within stipulated time to convert ‘I’ to a regular grade. The 'I' grade shall be converted to a proper grade (including F) and will be sent to the Academic Office within twenty-one days after the last working day of that semester.
2.4 Evaluation of Performance
The performance of a student will be evaluated in terms of two indices, viz. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for the Semester and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for all the completed semesters. The Grade Point Average (GPA) will be computed as under:
|GPA =||SUM (Credits x Grade Points for each course)|
|SUM (Credits Registered)|
2.5 Declaration of Results
The student shall have access to his answer paper/s in the end semester examination which may be shown to the student by the instructor(s) concerned. In the interest of transparency, the instructors have to show answer papers of all exams and quizzes to the students, whether aggrieved or not. The instructor has to make suitable announcements regarding date and time for showing final exam answer papers. The final exam answer papers should be preserved by the instructor (or by the Academic Section, in case of external faculty or guest faculty) for at least six months after the exam is over.
The grades of all courses are due before the twelve working days from the end of the semester stated in the almanac. The faculty have to be transparent regarding the evaluation and grading scheme employed for the course with the students. After finalization of the grades, the letter grades awarded will be announced individually to each student. An aggrieved student can contact the instructor concerned within two weeks from the commencement of the semester immediately following the announcement of the results. If the instructor feels that the case is genuine, it may be re-examined with Dean/Director’s approval and forward a revised grade, if any, to the Academic Section, with justification for the revision.
It is to be noted that if at any point of time, a student formally leaves the institute without completing the graduation requirements, he/she cannot re-join; unless it is through JOSAA/CSAB admission route.
2.6 REGISTRATION PROCEDURE
2.6.1 Dates and Venue of Registration
The academic record of a student is maintained in terms of the courses for which he/she registers in any semester, and the grades obtained in those courses. Registration for courses is done at the beginning of each semester. The date, time and venue of registration are announced in advance. Since registration is a very important procedural part of the credit system, it is absolutely essential that all students present themselves on the specified day. In case of illness or emergent circumstances of a student on the registration day, he/she must intimate and obtain approval of Dean-Academics (or appropriate authority) with documentary proof. Registration in absentia may be allowed only in rare cases, at the discretion of the Dean Academics. The institute can ask students to pre-register for courses to enable proper academic planning as and when needed.
2.6.2 Clearance of Dues
At the time of admission, the student must pay the fees and make other specified payments before course registration. In subsequent semesters, the student may be asked to obtain 'no dues certificates' from all applicable sections.
2.6.3 Advice on Courses
All students have to consult their Faculty Advisers and get their registration signed/approved by them. A Faculty Adviser is normally appointed for a batch of students in a discipline who will guide the complete/remaining programs of study of each student and advice on the courses to be taken by a student. Special provisions exist for academically weak students.
2.6.4 Lower and Upper Limits for Credits Registered
An undergraduate student should register for a minimum of 12 credits in a semester if s/he has at least that many credits to be completed for the degree s/he is in. No student should register for more than 24 credits in a semester. If a student registers for less than 12 credits (but has more than 12 credits to graduate), he/she will have to change his status to that of a part-time student and pay tuition fees. Registration with fewer or more credits is at the discretion of the Dean (Academics).
2.6.5 Minimum Student Registration in a Course
A course will normally run only if there is a minimum registration of eight students or as per Institute discretion.
2.6.6 Late Registration
For reasons beyond control, if a student is not able to appear at the registration desk or send an authorized representative with a medical certificate, he/she may apply to the Dean for late registration. The Dean will consider and may approve late registration in genuine cases on payment of an extra penalty (to be modified regularly). This penalty will not be waived, whatever be the reason for late registration. Late registration would end after two weeks of the start of the semester.
2.6.7 Semester-off for UG students
1) UG students can be given semester-off any time after completing 2nd year. The students have to apply for each semester for a leave. The maximum duration of the programs remains the same.
2) The student need not register during their absence in the semester and need not pay the fees. If a student registers (for want of BTP, Honors, etc.), they would have to pay the full Tuition fees.
3) The student should register for the semester in which he/she is getting the degree.
2.7.1 Attendance Requirement:
Students will have to attend all classes. However, to accommodate for any unforeseen events like minor health problems or so, a student can be absent in any course, for a maximum of 15% of classes. Beyond this 15% margin, the absence of a student is downgraded as follows. Let the attendance of a student in a course be ATT%.
*Due to medical reasons, if a student falls in the range of 70% - 85% of attendance, he/she may be exempted from downgrading after submission of supporting medical documents as per the institute norms. Even after claiming the attendance under medical reasons, if any student still has below 85% of attendance will have one grade reduction as mentioned above. A student whose attendance is less than 70% in a course is given an F grade.
(*Applicable for students admitted in 2019-20 onwards)
The attendance rule can be relaxed for a student’s absence for genuine and proven reasons like medical reason, on a case by case basis. This discretion power lies with the Director of the Institute.
2.7.2 Detailed Information on Attendance Policy
a) In order to maintain the attendance record of a particular course, a roll call may be taken in every scheduled lecture, tutorial and practical class (for the purposes of attendance, every scheduled practical class will count as one unit irrespective of the number of contact hours).
b) The instructor will consolidate the attendance record for the course (lectures, tutorials and practicals together as applicable) from the beginning of the semester up to the mid-sem exam and from the mid-sem exam to the final exam. The institute may send this information in writing to the concerned students and/or parents/guardian.
c) Absent due to participation in inter university sports/cultural events/programming contests, will be treated as Absent, unless prior permission is sanctioned by Dean/Appropriate Authority on authenticated documents submitted by the student(s).
d) Absent for short term on medical grounds, the student has to submit the medical certificates to the Dean (Academics) through the academic office within 2 working days from the date of resuming to class work.
e) Absent for long term on medical grounds, the student has to give intimation to the Dean (Academics) through the Academics office. The student has to submit the medical certificates to the Dean (Academics) through the academic office within 2 working days from the date of resuming to class work.
2.7.4 Semester Withdrawal
In case, the valid period of absence (on medical grounds) is more than 18 working days during the semester, the student may apply for withdrawal from the entire semester. Each application for semester withdrawal will be examined by Dean Academics (or appropriate authority). Depending on the merit of the case an appropriate recommendation will be made to the Chairman, Senate of the Institute. No partial withdrawal from courses registered in a semester will be considered.
2.7.5 Absence during the Mid Semester exam and Final Examination
In case of absence on medical grounds or other extraordinary ground before or during the Major Test period (typically the final semester exam), 'I' grade application may be made by a student on the prescribed form to the Dean (Academics) within 2 days after the exam through the regular medical leave application process.
2.7.6 On Medical Grounds:
1) Students who are absent on medical ground have to submit a certificate from the panel doctor of the Institute. On verification with the doctor, a makeup exam shall be conducted on a pre-announced date.
2) Absence due to illness not exceeding three weeks will be allowed after taking due permission. Due to emergencies, such permission may be taken later, and by the guardian if necessary.
3) If Dean/Institute accepts the application of the student for taking a make-up exam of the end- semester examination, this would be informed to the course instructor to conduct a makeup examination. The make-up exam should be completed within two weeks of the start of next semester.
4) No makeup exam is conducted for a missed mid-semester exam. Students need to submit a written request and take prior approval for taking up such exams for valid reasons.
2.7.7 On Extraordinary Circumstances:
The ‘I’ grade shall be converted to a proper grade and will be sent to the Academic Office within 21 days from the last working date of the semester. The Dean may relax the above in special situations, which arise due to extraordinary circumstances. The period for conversion of 'I' grade can be extended to the first week of the next semester, with the approval of the Dean/Director on the recommendations of the Instructor.
2.8 RULES FOR HONORS CONVERSION
2.8.1 Conversion to Honors Program:
A student at the end of 2nd year is given an opportunity to get into B.Tech Honors program. A student registered for B.Tech Honors has to take 176 credits. In order to do Honors, the student must work on a particular topic/ area for a period of 2 years (3rd and 4th year) under a particular faculty/faculties. The entry criteria for Honors program are:
1) A minimum CGPA of 8.0 in 1st two years
2) The student must be willing to work with a particular supervisor(s) who should agree to work with the student as well.
A student working on his Honors does not do separate BTP. A student is allowed to change his/her Honors supervisor only once. Moreover, if the student drops from Honors at the end of any semester, the student’s project in the 6th and 7th Sem. would be considered as his/her BTP. The work in the 5th Sem. need not be considered under Additional Project or Independent Study; unless an exception is made by the Dean/Institute for that student.
2.9 GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS FOR B. TECH
In order to graduate with B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) or Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE), a student must successfully complete 144 credits with minimum CGPA of 5.0 and meet the following requirements.

The normal duration for B.Tech is 4 years. The minimum duration is 3.5 years and the maximum duration for the completion of the requirements of B.Tech is 6 years from the date of admission. If a student repeats 1st year, then the count of duration starts from the year of repeating the 1st year. If a student is granted withdrawal for one or more semesters on medical grounds, this will count towards the maximum duration of stay at the Institute.
2.9.1 Eligibility for the Degree
A UG student shall be eligible for the award of degree of Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) only if the student has:
a. Undergone the prescribed program by earning all requisite credits specified in the curricula within the maximum stipulated duration

1. The student can repeat the course by registering for it in a regular semester when the course is offered.
2. The student can repeat the course by registering for it in a summer semester break if it is offered.
3. The student can take up formative assessment in that course, if it is a core course.
b) Students obtaining the grade 'F' in an elective course may have to repeat the course as fresh registration in the subsequent semester/year if it is offered, or register for any course that is deemed by the authorities to be another elective course.
c) In case of failure in Laboratory/Practical course the student will have to re-register for it in the next appropriate semester.
d) When a student registers for a course, his/ her grade will be used for SGPA calculation in that semester. A student taking a course again or giving a formative assessment will get a revised grade in comparison with the original grade obtained in the first sitting.
e) At the end of the first semester:
1. All students are eligible to register for 2nd semester, irrespective of CGPA/no. of F grades.
2. A student with CGPA ≤ 4.0 is put on probation and both the student and their parents are informed in writing.
3. Students with F Grades in any course in the 1st semester will have an opportunity to complete it under formative assessment after announcement of 1st semester results and before the end of the 2nd semester in order to complete the course(s).
f) At the end of the first year:

If the student fails the course on repeating it, he /she will again be given a chance to appear in one formative assessment and the cycle will repeat till the student passes the course.
i) As the maximum duration for the completion of the programme is six years, a student cannot repeat first year more than twice.
2.12 Assessment of Performance
There will be continuous assessment of a student's performance throughout the semester and grades will be awarded by the teacher concerned or the appropriate committee appointed for this purpose on the following basis.
a. In case of courses,
i. For theory courses, the evaluation will be based on instructors assessment, quizzes, mid semester examination and end semester examination, and
ii. For laboratory courses, the evaluation will be on the basis of attendance, assessment of the tasks assigned and end semester test/viva.
b. The evaluation of the project work will be based on sessional work assigned by the supervisor, seminar, project report and project evaluation committees’ assessment.

d. The mid-semester and end-semester examination will be conducted centrally by the Academic Section of the Institute every semester. Every theory course must have two mid-semesters and one end-semester examination. The durations of the examinations will be as laid down by the Senate from time to time. The class-tests or quizzes will be organized by the instructor concerned.
e. The weightage assigned to different components of assessment will be announced by the concerned instructor(s) in the beginning of the semester.
f. The results of performance of the students in the mid-semester examination shall be announced by the instructors. The following process will be followed to allow corrections in evaluations:
I. For spot verification by students, the evaluated answer scripts shall be made available during one of the lecture classes/lab classes/tutorials or during a special session, as may deemed fit by the instructor;
II. At least a week ahead of the notified time-schedule for verification of answer scripts by the students, individual course instructor(s) may display the model answers relating to the question paper, through website for information to the students;
III. Students shall point out discrepancies in the evaluation by the instructor, if any, on the spot
IV. After conclusion of the spot verification of answer scripts, the students shall be allowed to carry their answer scripts; and no claim whatsoever shall be entertained afterwards.
g. The final grades for a course must be submitted after the end-semester examination by the concerned instructor(s) to their Class Committee Chair for onward transmission to Academic Section within the date stipulated in the academic calendar (academic almanac).
2.13 BTP Projects:
a) A student is required to do one year BTP project, normally in 6th and 7th semesters. A team of two students will be allowed to do a BTP project. The project work is normally in two stages, each spread over a semester. At the end of the first stage, the student is required to submit a preliminary report of his/her work by a prescribed date to be evaluated by an Internal Project Evaluation Committee. The second stage of the work is continued in the following semester.
b) The second stage of project work is also evaluated in the same manner as in the first stage. However, in the second stage the students are required to submit unbounded copies of the report for examination.
On successful completion of the oral examination, the grade will be given to each student by both evaluation committee members and the supervisor for his/her overall performance.
c) For students having insufficient progress either in the second stage of a two stage project or in a single stage project, extension of time in the summer vacation not exceeding ten weeks from the announced last date for submission of the project report may be granted. In such cases, the concerned students will be temporarily awarded an 'I' grade. Further, if the reports are not submitted within the allowed period of time, the 'I' grade will be automatically converted to an 'F' grade.
2.14 Honors Programme:
a) A student at the end of 2nd year is given an opportunity to get into B.Tech Honors programme. A student registered for B.Tech Honors has to take additional 8 credits over and above the normal credits for regular B.Tech. Degree.
