CERTIFICATION

Policy ( Read More):

To qualify for the certificate, a minimum attendance rate of 75% is mandatory for class attendance and culture program attendance. This criterion applies even if the student has performed exceptionally well in midterms, finals, and quizzes. Please ensure compliance with this attendance policy to secure your certificate.
We understand concerns about attendance and its impact on performance. We give students opportunities in the following ways:

  • A fine of ₹850 will be applied to students failing due to attendance issues. For this, the student must have at least 50% of the classes. Otherwise they will not qualify to take this chance. 
  • If a student fails for reasons unrelated to attendance such as due to less scores in exams, they will receive an additional chance to pass the exam without incurring any charges. After these attempts, a fee of ₹500 will be levied for each reexamination.
  • Students are free to repeat the level if they fail the course, but will not be promoted to the next level.
