13 Awards for BS-MS students

Awards and certificates are given to students of the BS-MS Programme based on their performance indices. In case of degeneracy, both indices are calculated upto second decimal place to break ties as explained below.

The student(s) obtaining the highest SPI in the each of the first two semesters of the programme are given the CNR Rao award.36

The student obtaining the highest SPI (with a minimum of 9.0) in the semesters 3 and 4 of the BS-MS programme is given an Academic Excellence certificate. In each major programme and for each of the semesters 5-8 of the BS-MS programme, the student obtaining the highest SPI (with a minimum of 9.0) is given an Academic Excellence certificate.37

If more than one student receives a perfect 10.0 SPI in a given semester then all such students will receive the certificate. In all other cases, if multiple students have the same SPI, then the second place of decimal will be used to break degeneracy, if possible. In case the degeneracy persists, the CPI upto the second place of decimal will be used to break degeneracy, if possible. Only the student(s) ranked highest based on this will receive the certificate.38

The student obtaining the highest CPI (at least 9.0) of the graduating class in each major for the BS-MS programme is given an Academic Excellence award. In case of multiple students receiving the same CPI, the second place of decimal of CPI will be used to break degeneracy.39
