IGNOU Evaluation System

Completion of the programme requires successful completion of both assignment component and the Term-end Examination component for each of the courses in the programme. The total numbers of courses in BCA (Revised) are 39 and the total number of credits are 99.

Evaluation for each course covers two aspects:

a) Continuous evaluation through Assignment with a weightage of 25% in all courses except ECO-01, ECO-02, FEG-02, and BcSP-064. The weightage for assignments in ECO-01, ECO-02 and FEG-02 is 30%. There is no assignment component in BCSP-064 (Project Course). Wherever marks for viva-voce are mentioned in the assignment of any of the courses, viva-voce is compulsory. If the student submits assignment and does not attend viva-voce, then the submission of the assignment becomes NULL and VOID. Student will be awarded ZERO marks for the assignment.

b) Term-end examination with a weightage of 75% for all the courses except ECO-01, ECO0- 02, FEG-02 and BCSP-064. The weightage for term end examination for EC0-01, ECO-02, and FEG-02 is 70%. In the case of BcSP-064, Project Report evaluation is having a weightage of 75% and viva-voce is having a weightage of 25%.
