If the difference of marks between the valuations is above 20% the answer script will be sent for third valuation and the average of the closest two marks will be taken as final mark. The students having arrear papers are permitted to write their arrear along with regular papers. A maximum of 4 arrear papers may be written by regular and present students in the semester examination. However the final year students can write all the papers in the last semester along with the regular papers.
