Amity University follows a Semester System which is in conformity with the global
practices and standards. The Course curriculum of one year is taught into two semesters
i.e., 17-18 weeks each. Semester system promotes greater interaction between faculty
members and students and also permits more meaningful term paper and research assignments.
The level of students' academic performance as the aggregate of continuous evaluation
and end term examination is reflected by letter grades on a Ten Point Scale. Letter
grades (A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, F ) have points associated with them in quantified
hierarchy and have qualitative meaning. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), Annual
Grade Point Average (AGPA), Trimester Grade Point Average (TGPA) & Cumulative
Grade Point Average (CGPA) are calculated based on the students' performance in
Semester(s)Annual(A),Term(T), & overall respectively. Amity University follows
Absolute Grading as well as Relative Grading depending upon the student strength
in a particular programme & batch. Students are required to maintain minimum
SGPA & CGPA to pass a semester/year so to promote to the next semester/year
and qualify for Degree/Diploma.
Every student in Amity University is required to achieve 100% attendance in all
the Lectures, Tutorials and Practicals and Seminars arranged for the respective
course during the semester. However, a relaxation up to a maximum of 25% is granted
in case of contingencies. A minimum of 75% attendance is required to appear in the
examinations. 100% attendance criteria ensure academic excellence, disciplinary
approach and growth of the student.
The detailed course curriculum of all the programmes in Amity University is reviewed
at regular intervals as per the industry requirements. For this, many points are
considered such as feedback reports on the placements, employability of the passed
out students, latest developments in the technology, statutory compliances of various
bodies etc. The course syllabus is first examined and evaluated by an expert committee
which is then reviewed by Board of Studies of the institution for recommendations
to Academic Council for approval.
