Kohima, June 10: The Nagaland University will introduce semesters at the undergraduate level from July 1.
The university’s professor A. Lanunungsang said hectic preparations for successful introduction of the system were on in the university as well as its affiliated colleges.
He said the decision to implement the system had been taken by the academic and executive councils of the university and added that the system would start from July 1, with the annual examination system being phased out gradually.
“Semesters I, III and V will start from July and end in December while semesters II, IV and VI will commence from January and end in June. Admission, classes, conduct of examinations and declaration of results along with semester-end breaks will be completed within these periods,” the professor said.
He said the overall results of the students would include 30 marks from internal assessment and 70 marks from the end-term examination. While the end-term examinations of the fourth and sixth semesters will be conducted and evaluated by the university, the remaining end-term examinations of the first, second, third and fifth semesters will be conducted by the university but evaluated at the respective colleges.
Lanunungsang said the system has been designed keeping the students’ interests in mind and added that the university had completed the process of creating the syllabi for various subjects and streams along with the guidelines for conduct of the system.
