  Nomenclature
  The different terms used in connection with the MPEC system are explained below:
 

* Registration for a course: 
     
    It entitles a student to regularly attend classes for the course to satisfy the prescribed provision for earning the credit for the course.

Earning Credit for a registered course: Appearing in end term theory/practical examination for the course, having end term examination, and securing minimum specified percentage of marks in Theory/Practical examination, separately for each course. Securing minimum specified percentage of marks in Internal Assessment for the course not having end-term examination.
    * Keeping the term: 
   
  Students who have satisfied the eligibility for appearing in end term examination for a course and either have not appeared in end-term examination or appeared in the end-term examination but could not obtain the credit for the respective course are said to have ‘kept the term’ for the respective course.
 

* Re-registration for a course: 
 

 
       The students who have ‘kept the term’ for a course can re-register for the respective course. Such students will have to appear only in the end-term examination of the respective course and the credits earned for attendance and Internal Assessment will be accumulated for transfer to the student. Such courses will be called “Backlog Courses”.
However, the accumulated credit for attendance and internal assessment will not be transferred if the student registers afresh for the respective course.
 

# A student will have to register, at the polytechnic, for the courses he/she would like to study in a term, at the beginning of each term, till he/she becomes eligible for the award of diploma. The Guidance and Counseling Unit of the Institute will advise the student in deciding about the courses of his/her choice and the pace of learning.
 

# A student must complete the study of the pre-requisite course (i.e., at least have “kept the term”) specified for a course before selecting the respective course for registration.
 

# A 10+ student would be allowed to register for Applied Technology and Elective courses only after he/she has completed the study (at least have “kept the term”) of pre-requisite Foundation and Hard Core courses.
 

# A 12+ student would be allowed to register for Applied Technology and Elective courses only after he/she has completed the study (at least have “kept the term”) of pre-requisite Hard Core courses.
 

# The institute authorities would provide the list of courses to be offered in the Odd and Even terms of an academic year, at the commencement of each academic year.
 

# The Guidance and Counseling Unit would advice the students about the options available to each individual student, taking into consideration the courses in which credit had been earned by the student (through study/exemption), pre-requisites for the courses, backlog courses and limits for registration of courses.
 

# The institute would not arrange special classes in courses not scheduled to be offered in the term.
 

# Selection of courses would be done satisfying the condition of maximum and minimum number of classes.
  * Limit of courses for registration:
 


#1.       A student can register in any term for a maximum seven (7) number of courses, out of which, the courses having end-term examination shall not be more than six (6).
A student not having any course for re-registration would have to register in any term, except the last term for minimum three (3) courses having end-term examination.
 

#2.       However, high achiever students would be permitted to register for additional courses in any term, in excess of stipulation (#1) above, as below:10+ High Achiever students would be permitted to register for upto eight (8) courses in any term after completion of ODD and EVEN terms of first year.
12+ High Achiever students would be permitted to register for upto nine (9) courses in any term after completion of ODD terms of first year.


Note:
(a) 10+ High Achiever – Those 10+ students who have registered for minimum seven (7) courses in each of the ODD term and EVEN term of first year and have earned credits for all the registered courses in first attempt would be designated as 10+ High Achiever.

(b) 12+ High Achiever – Those 12+ students who have registered for   
minimum seven (7) courses in the ODD term of first year and have  earned credits for all the registered courses in first attempt would be designated as 12+ High Achiever.

(c) Those High Achiever students will have to continue earning credits
for all the subsequently registered courses in the first attempt to be eligible to continue as high achievers.].
 



#3.       Maximum number of courses having end-term examination registered and re-registered by a student in any term shall not exceed ten (10). Examples explaining the above rule are given below:

  • A 10+ student has registered in a term for 6 courses, all having end-term examination and has earned credit for only one (1) course but has ‘kept the term’ for other five (5) courses.
Option-1:
         The student decides to re-register for all the five (5) backlog courses. Maximum number of courses, with end-term examination for registration/re-registration                                                                                                  = 10
Allowable number of courses, with end-term examination, for registration                                                   = 10 – 5 = 5 ‹ 6 (OK)
Hence, allowable number of fresh courses, with end-term examination, for registration              = 5
Total allowable number of fresh courses, with and without end-term examination, for registration     = 5 + 1 = 6.
Option-2:
         The student decides to re-register for two (2) backlog courses. And to register afresh for other 3 courses.
Maximum number of courses, with end-term examination for registration/re-registration                          = 10
Allowable number of courses, with end-term examination, for registration                                              = 10 – 2 = 8 › 6 (Not OK)
Hence, allowable number of courses, with end-term examination, for registration                     = 6
Hence allowable number of fresh courses, with end-term examination, for registration                     = 6 - 3 = 3.
Total allowable number of fresh courses, with and without end-term examination, for registration   = 3 + 1 = 4.
