Assessment System

The MBA Degree Programme has a total of 28 subjects, two of which carry 50 marks, while the rest carry 100 marks each (Total 2700 marks). The allocation of marks is as follows: For each Subject (course), the ongoing assessment carries 60% of the marks and the Semester-end Examination carries 40% of the marks. The ongoing assessment includes seminars and presentations, assignments and case studies, attendance and class tests. Students will be informed about the CIA programme at the beginning of the semester. Final CIA results will be displayed on the Students’ Notice Board. Subsequently the marks will be sent to the Controller of Examination by the Dean’s office.

Besides these, there are four other additional requirements:

  • The students will also be assessed for their Extracurricular Activities, which carry 100 marks
  • Every student has to take up a Project Work and submit a Report, which carries 150 marks and a Viva –voce of 50 marks
  • Every student has to write a Dissertation Paper on a subject of his/her choice (preferably on the area of specialization), which carries 100 marks
  • Finally, there will be a Comprehensive Viva Voce Examination at the end of II and IV Semesters. This Viva Voce will be conducted by a Board and it carries 50 marks in each semester

Thus, the entire MBA Degree Programme, offered by Xavier Business School (XBS) carries a total of 3200 marks in four Semesters.

Pass Mark
In order to pass, a student has to get a minimum of 50% marks in the ongoing assessment and a minimum of 50% marks in the Semester-end examinations. For the Project report, dissertation, comprehensive viva voce and extracurricular activities each student has to get a minimum of 50% of the marks. If someone does not secure the minimum marks in each subject, he/she will have to repeat the failed subjects. A student who fails in less than fifty percent of the subjects will be allowed to move to the next Semester, while he/she will have to repeat the examinations or assignments of the failed subjects, during the subsequent Semester. But, if a student fails in fifty percent or more subjects in a particular Semester, he/she will have to repeat the entire Semester Examinations, in the subsequent year along with the next batch of students. A student has to pass in 50% of all papers of first and second semesters taken together, or obtain 50% of total credits to continue from first year to second year.On failing to do sohe/she may be permitted to re-enrol in the next academic session as a casual or regular student. A student who fails in any subject in the third and/or final Semester will have to appear in a grand supplementary examination in order to pass MBA and get the Degree. A student, who fails in the extracurricular activities, will be required to fulfil some special programmes at his/her own cost, to be determined by the University.

The pattern of all written examinations, class tests as well as semester-end examinations, will be general in nature and practical in orientation, requiring creative and personalized answers. Hence, the students should not expect direct questions based on the different units of the curriculum.

Project Work
At the end of the Second Semester, every student will have to go for a Field Project. For this, each student is expected to make the necessary contacts with different firms or organizations much in advance and identify one organization/firm, with the approval of the Dean, where he/she will carry out the Project. The University will assist the students including official communications and guidance. Moreover, to carry out this Project, each student will be guided by a Faculty member and the student is expected to consult his/her guide regularly. The entire exercise must be carried out with seriousness and full concentration, as the performance in the Field Project will have a strong bearing on the placement opportunity of a student. The total duration of this Field Project is 8 weeks. All the expenses related to the Field Project are to be borne by the student himself/herself, as this is not included in the regular fees. Attendance at internship is compulsory and certificate of the competent authority of the respective organization is needed.
