Our philosophy of testing and feedback, and how it helps
"Evaluation at Loyola is a process of helping students find what they need to improve in. It is not about showing them their place in the class."- Mr. V. Jagadhish
Controller of examinations
Traditionally, Loyola has always wondered about the use of the word "examination". We would not do away with it, of course, since we are affiliated to and part of a system, but we believe that test performances are feedback we receive on our own administration of our programs, and that our evaluation is not a performance rating, but well-meaning advice.
It is this philosophy that guides all of evaluation at Loyola. We have adopted a Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) method to go along with the standard Semester-End System. Although there are various tests for different courses, these are some common methods for evaluation:
Held once every week, comprise 15 marks
Makes for 25 marks
Include viva voce, seminars, attendance & assessments, and are allotted 20 marks
Held in October and March, these are scored on 60 marks.
Practical exams are held each year in March for the relevant courses. Final examinations are held during the months of March & April.
To successfully qualify for the evaluation processes and to then receive a degree after our full-time programs, students need to follow these rules stipulated by the Osmania University:
Please note that these rules may change from time to time as determined by the College and the University.
