The institute management is very strict about this rule. Any student, who fails to meet the same in any course, is subject to face grade losses in the particular course. Attendance requirements will not be waived in case of sickness, except in extreme cases of illness, like those involving forced hospitalization.
    Missed Examinations/Quizzes
    Students are not allowed to miss any quizzes, examinations, presentations or course submissions without taking prior permission from the PGDM chairperson. For each missed component, the student will be awarded zero marks. In case a student falls seriously sick before exam, he/she would be expected to convey the same to the Academic Programmers Office (APO) through email, phone or personal contact, BEFORE THE EXAM. In such cases a re-examination may be organized for the student, at the discretion of the APO office.
