KOCHI: The Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) has decided to implement grading system for its B.Tech. examinations from 2010-11.
The new system will be implemented at the university engineering departments, School of Engineering on Thrikkakara campus, Cochin University College of Engineering at Pulinkunnu, and its affiliated colleges.
Registrar N. Chandramohanakumar said on Tuesday that the evaluation of the first year B.Tech. students on the campus would be based on the grading system from this year onwards.
The grading pattern will be worked out in detail later.
Dr. Chandramohanakumar said that the university has no plans to introduce the semester pattern for the B.Tech. courses this year.
He said that the regular pattern of conducting the examinations after the completion of one year will be continued for B.Tech. programmes even as the evaluation method will be switched to the grading system.
