These “Rules & Regulations” will help to develop a sustainable academic culture for quality education at IIUC. The Faculties shall also follow these as part of Ordinances.
(For Teachers, Students and officers)
1. Examination: An Examination is an assessment intended to measure the knowledge, skill and aptitude of a student. The International Islamic University Chittagong (IIUC) is not merely an examining body. It is rather basically a "nursery to create good citizens". We therefore emphasize the diffusion of scientific, technical and professional knowledge on the one hand, and building up of character in youth by making religion and ethics an integral part of education on the other. One of the essential characteristics of an Integrated Education System is the Continuous Evaluation Process. In this process a student is evaluated in a multidimensional manner, such as, (a) his punctuality in attending the classes (b) his ability to perform Class Tests and Assignments in time, and (c) his scores in the Mid-Term & Final Examination.
Apart from these, there is a Viva-Voce Board (Oral Examination) at IIUC for all Undergraduate programs. Viva-Voce helps a graduate to gain confidence in their own ability, and provides a final wake up call to take learning seriously. It is also valuable to take early preparation for professional oral Examinations and is useful to enhance employment interview skills.
1.1 Mid-Term and Final Examination: In each Semester there are Mid-Term and Final Examinations, which will be conducted by the concerned Examinations Committee(s) of the Departments. After conducting 6 weeks’ classes, Mid-Term Examination will be held centrally. After Mid-Term Examination and conducting 8 weeks’ classes and 1 (one) week preparatory period Final Examination is to be held. At least one Class Test & one Assignment with presentation before each of Mid-Term and Final Examination must be taken. The Evaluation system will be as follows:
- Theoretical Course Total = 100 marks
- Class attendance (10 marks)
- Assignment/Presentation/ Class Test (10 marks)
iii. Mid-Term (30 marks)
- Final Examination (50 marks)
- Laboratory/Field Work Total = 100 marks
- Class Participation and Attendance (10 marks)
- Practical /Design Work /Report, Assignments (40-60 marks)
iii. Lab Exam and Viva-Voce (40-60 marks
- Project Work Total = 100 marks
- Internal Examiner (Supervisor), Based on performance, regularity, quality of analysis,
design, organization writing style [35 marks]
- External Examiner, Based on quality of analysis, design, organization, writing style [35 marks]
iii. Presentation and Oral Examination (Viva-Voce), [30 marks]
