      Cases of candidates with attendance below 60% will not be considered. 

3.   Students are not permitted to use calculators during examination. 

4.  Writing on the question paper is prohibited and will be construed as malpractice (except on self answering sheets).

5.  If a student is found using unfair means during an examination, he / she will be given “Zero” in the paper and his / her Examination will be cancelled. 

6. Any incident of tampering with the examination records will be considered a serious offence and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
