Evaluation of Answer Scripts of PG Course

All answer scripts of PG courses will be evaluated by two examiners
If the difference between First Evaluation and the Second Evaluation is more than 15, the third examiner shall evaluate the script.
The average of the marks of nearest two valuations shall be considered as the marks secured by the candidate. However, if one of the three marks falls exactly midway between the other two, then the higher two marks shall be taken for averaging.
The same process of third evaluation will be carried out for scripts of undergraduate courses during revaluation
