The Institute is deemed to be university and awards its own degree. The semester scheme is followed for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
The academic performance of a student is graded on a ten-point scale, the letter grades awarded to a student in all the courses (except audit courses) are converted into a semester and cumulative performance index called the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) respectively.
