At the course level, the achievement criteria or passing threshold is defined as achieving 50% or higher in the assessment. Therefore, a student who has passed every assessment, is considered to have passed and attained the Course Outcomes (COs) and Programme Outcomes (POs) for that unit. At the programme level, the performance target for overall PO attainment (class average) is set at 50% for each PO.

All students have to achieve 50% or greater in all twelves POs during the four-year degree programme.

The Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) performance target is set at 70% of the graduates attains the three PEOs in their career and professional life a few (3 to 5) years after graduation (measured through alumni survey).
