What is internal back?

Each semester carries 1000 marks out of which 500 marks are in the hands of college authority. These marks are given on the basis of your performance in college sessional marks. Different subjects carries different marks. If a student gets an internal back but has scored enough marks in external exam, then it will not be counted as carryover and his status will be termed as pass. For example: A subject of total 150 marks have 100 marks in external exams and 50 marks in internal exams. For getting pass status, he needs to score total 45 marks. If a student gets 10 marks in internal exams ( fail ) but secures 35 marks in external, he scores total of 45 marks thus getting the pass status.

Grace marks rule:

According to this rule, a student will be given at most 10 grace marks in a subject.
For Example: If a student is having back in three subjects- Subject 1 back by 7 marks , Subject 2 back by 2 mark., Subject 3 back by 1 mark. then he will be awarded grace marks in all subjects because now there is provision of awarding at most 10 marks (new rule) than of 5 marks (old rule).

You will get the notice from the college or from the official website about the carryover. You will have to fill the form worth Rs.500 and will have to give the exam again until you clear it.
