Dropping Compulsory Courses


For all Compulsory courses, except those listed below, any student (Ph.D. or Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D) can approach the Course Instructor for a Drop Test.

This will be a written test with marks assigned out of 100 so that a student may be deemed to have cleared it if he/she gets 65 or more marks; this mark will then be used with the full credits in order to calculate the studentís CPI.

No prejudice will attach to a student who fails to secure 65 marks in the Drop Test; he/she may simply continue in the course.


The following Compulsory courses may not be dropped:

EX-1, EX-2, EX-3, DP-1, DP-2, M.Sc. Project


Drop Test is not permitted for Elective Courses. The student may choose another elective instead.
