HoD will set a date for the valuation clarification day

As per new regulations, the HoD will set a date for the valuation clarification day . On that day, the HoD or nominee, the course instructor concerned, and a subject expert will be present. “Where a student is not satisfied with clarifications, the matter can be referred to the committee, which would evaluate the answer script again in front of the student concerned,” officials added.
