Unless otherwise described, in this rule, a Semester means academic curriculum and activities conducted for a period of 6 (six) months named as 1st Semester and 2nd Semester in each academic year.

Students shall be admitted into the 1st year 1st Semester of the Bachelor Programme as per University rules.

If this provision is violated, studentship, examination, and examination results of the student shall immediately be cancelled.
(i) A student failing to appear in any Semester-final examination (not a single course), unless otherwise the clause 2.b (i) is applicable, may be allowed for re-admission with the same Semester of the next available batch. Readmitted students, however, shall always be assigned by the original student ID.
(ii) If a student fails to appear at any Semester-final examination due to shortage of required percentage of attendance, or failure to pay the dues or expulsion from the University or any other reason, as the case may be, s/he shall have to get herself/himself re-admitted to the same Semester of the next available batch.
(iii) If a student fails to earn the requisite CGPA for promotion (according to clause 14) from one Year to the next he/she may seek re-admission with the 1st Semester of the same year of the next available batch; however, if a student gets satisfied (as per the student) GPA in any odd Semester (First Year 1st Semester, 2nd Year 1st Semester, 3rd Year 1st Semester and 4th Year 1st Semester) but failed to get required CGPA in the even Semester (1st Year 2nd Semester, 2nd Year 2nd Semester, 3rd Year 2nd Semester and 4th Year 2nd Semester) he/she may seek re-admission with the 2nd Semester of the same year of the next available batch.

If the next batch already completed the odd/even semester the student shall get re-admission with the next available batch; in such cases his/her registration may be extended by one academic year (seven years to complete Bachelor programme).
(v) Students studying in the 2nd Year 1st Semester or 3rd Year 1st Semester or 4th Year 1st Semester found obtain less than required CGPA for promotion (2.0 in the 1st Year 2nd Semester and 2.25 in the 2nd Year 2nd Semester 3rd Year 2nd Semester and 4th Year 2nd Semester) in the immediate past even Semester when result published shall have to get readmission with the next available batch either in 1st or 2nd Semester (whichever applicable/appropriate). Such students, if appeared in the improvement examinations of immediate past odd Semester and found secure required CGPA for promotion after adding the improvement result (when published), may be allowed get re-admission in the same odd Semester of the next available batch.
(vi) On re-admission, grades earned earlier by a student in a Semester shall be cancelled and the student shall have to retake all the course-works (such as in-course/practical/quiz tests, internship programme, project, field work viva-voce and final examinations) of that Semester.

Mid-Semester examination, if completed before her/his re-admission, the Chairman of the Department shall arrange make-up Mid-Semester examination.
(viii) A student has to complete the Bachelor programme within a maximum of six academic years of his/her admission session, therefore, shall not get chance for re-admission more than twice during the entire programme unless any other clause allowed for an extension of his/her registration.
