The candidate is required to obtain a minimum of 40% in each paper and an aggregate of 50% in the total of the remaining subjects of the group in the subsequent examinations.
Say a student has obtained the following marks in an examination
I - 65, II - 35, III - 30; IV – 40 ; Total = 170. [Aggregate < 50% → Fail]
Since the student has got marks 60% in Paper I and has also got the minimum required in other papers i.e. ≥ 25% in Papers II and III, he/she will be exempted from appearing in Paper I in the subsequent examinations.
In the next exam the candidate is required to appear only in papers II, III and IV and get a minimum of 40% and aggregate of 50% (total of 150) in the papers II,III and IV together.
Say the student has obtained the following marks in the subsequent exam
The student may obtain marks required to pass the examination.
II - 54, III – 58; IV – 45 Total = 157. [Aggregate ≥ 50% → Pass]
The student may fail the examination but still obtain an exemption in one more papers additionally.
II - 30, III – 65; IV - 42 Total = 137. [Aggregate < 50% → Fail]
The student fails the examination. Here there is a scope for exemption in Paper III since the student obtained ≥ 60% and has got a minimum of 25% in the other papers.
In the next exam the student is required to appear only Papers II and IV and get a minimum of 50%.
The student may fail the examination and not get any new exemptions.
II - 20, III – 65, IV – 15 Total = 100. [Aggregate < 50% and Failed in Paper II and IV → Fail]
Special Case » Failing after Getting an Aggregate ≥ 60%
Where a student who has appeared in all the papers of a group has failed in one paper but obtained a minimum of 60% of the total marks of the remaining subjects (not in each subject) shall be declared to have passed in that group if he secured 50% marks in that paper in which he failed in any subsequent examination.
I - 55, II - 35, III - 72 Total = 162. [Aggregate > 50% → Fail]
Has got 60% in I and III together (i.e. the other subjects).
In the subsequent exams the student needs to appear only in paper II and get a minimum of 50% in it to pass in the group.
