C. Attendance of Lectures Tutorials Etc.
Each year a student is required to attend in each subject a minimum of 75% of lectures, practical and tutorials calculated separately in order to be eligible for promotion to the next higher class or for being sent up for the Council/University Examination. The Syndicate may however condone deficiency of attendance to the extent of 15% only in exceptional cases. There is no law to help a student in case his percentage of attendance falls below the irreducible minimum of 60% during an academic year students are advised to bear this fact in mind and not absent themselves from College classes, as otherwise they are liable to be detained irrespective of their performance in the examination. The Syndicate may also grant condensation to further extents of 5% in case of those who are deputed by the Government or the University for any purpose.
