Semester – II
Paper – II: Practicals
Max. Marks: 100
Time: 3 + 3 hours
(on two days)
Special Note:

Do any eight experiments from each Section.

The students are required to calculate the error involved in a particular experiment.
Note:

The Practical examination will be held in two sessions of 3 hours each (first session I the evening of first day and the second session in the morning of the next day).

Distribution of Marks:
Experiments 25+25 = 50 Marks
Vivavoce 15+15 = 30 Marks
Lab. Record 20 Marks
Total 100 Marks
For giving marks under Lav. Record each college will maintain practical assessment record by using the following procedure:

Each student has to perform a minimum number of experiments prescribed in the syllabus.

After the completion of a practical the teacher concerned will check the note book and conduct the Viva – voce of each student to find out how much concepts related to the theoretical and experimental part of the experiment he/ she has understood. According to his/her performance marks will be recorded on their practical notebook. These marks will constitute the lab. Record.

To compute the final marks for lab. Record, a separate register will be maintained. Each student will be assigned separate page on this register. On this page the marks obtained by the student in different practicals will be entered. This record will be signed by the concerned teacher.

The lab. Record register will be presented to eth external practical examiners fro Lab. Record marks. These external examiners will verify the record randomly.
