Examination

Autonomy was conferred on Fatima College in 1990. The system of evaluation has been systematically and periodically remodeled to make it highly credible and valid. There has been a parallel evolution of the evaluation system to match the changing trends in curricular innovations and teaching-learning methodologies.

The basis of changes incorporated in the question paper pattern and evaluation components are aimed at comprehensive evaluation of the capabilities of the students. The evaluation pattern is designed to test the textual comprehension and practical application of knowledge gained in various areas of their chosen subjects. Hence credits and marks are allotted for projects, internships and training programmes.

The current system of evaluation is based on the CBCS (Choice Based Credit System) guidelines given by the Department of Higher Education, Tamil Nadu Government.

The two components of evaluation are:

   Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) = 25%
