The revised rules state that 30 marks will be allotted to project-based work, while 20 marks will be reserved for seminars or journal completion of the subject. Previously, the students had a 30-mark exam and 20 marks were allotted or practical exams. But now after the revised pattern, students will be graded on the basis of the total marks they secure for their projects and seminars or journals. 

The students who secure a 'D' grade will be considered as fail. Moreover, the State Education even stated in its new Government Resolution (GR) that students from the Science field who have chosen PCB i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Biology will now have to give only one practical exam as compared to two.
