The basis for the calculation of the attendance shall be the period prescribed by the DDE according to its calendar of events

The student will be assigned a grade in each course based on his or her combined performance in the sessional work and the final examination. Grade distinction and grade point of each grade is as follows:

A student who has applied for exemption of a subject should continue attending the classes for the subject until the result is declared. He/she could discontinue only if exemption is granted.

A student may in consultation with his or her adviser and instructor, drop a subject on or before 7 days of registering for the courses.
A student may register again whenever the offer in the subsequent semester for that subject which he/she has dropped in a previous term arises.
A student cannot register again, for any subject that he/she has completed and passed, for the purpose of improving the grade in that subject. The possibility of improving a grade arises only when a student fails in a subject and gets a F grade.


 To achieve the objectives of education, the most important aspect is the assessment and evaluation of the students. SVYASA has evolved a unique and comprehensive way of evaluating the total personality development by a combination of the ancient Gurukula system of evaluation by the Gurus or the teachers and by the measurements of the modern era of science and technology. The students are evaluated by the following tools of assessment:

a. Theoretical comprehension of the subject
b. Achievements in yoga practices
c. Skills of communication
d. Team work performance including the organizational skills
e. Teaching capacities
f. Research attitudes and skills
g. Transformation of the personality and 
h. Development of the zeal for selfless service, national awareness and  spiritual growth

These will be used for giving the grades of the personality assessment of the students.  Assessment of the personality is done by recording the changes based on scientific measurements, assessments by the faculty, their team-work performances, self-assessments, attendance, regularity and steadiness, etc.   There is continuous monitoring of their growth.
