All the candidates who have passed H.S. Examination or equivalent (10+2) Examination are eligible for applying for General Courses (Arts, Science and Commerce) in the College. For studying with Honours in any subject, a candidate is required to secure 45% marks in the H.S. Examination or equivalent (10+2) Exam. in the concerned year. Each and every year gap of the candidate will be compensated by deducting 10 marks from the Total Marks obtained for each previous year, a maximum for tenure of three years. That is, a student will not be allowed to apply if s/he had passed Higher Secondary equivalent Exam. prior to three years (year before 2015) as per B.U. rules.

A candidate can not apply for admission in any Honours Courses of any stream if s/he secured less than 45% marks in that subject. But a student from Science Stream may apply for Honours in Accountancy, Economics and Computer Science if s/he secures at least 30% marks in Mathematics.

The admission will strictly be on merit basis. The merit list will be prepared on the basis of Grade Points obtained by the applicants. The procedure for calculating Grade Point is given below:


For Honours Course:

(Except for applying into honours subjects: Mass Communication and Journalism and Music)

Grade Point = [Total marks obtained in Best FIVE papers in H.S./10+2 level (except Environmental Studies) + marks obtained in the subject applied for Honours Course]

* In case s/he has one language paper in H.S. Exam. (10+2), the marks of the same will be doubled. If the full marks of a subject is not 100, the same will be converted to a proportion of 100.

** In case the applicant student did not have Computer Science as a H.S./10+2 equivalent subject, the candidate needs to add their Mathematics marks from H.S./10+2 equivalent in its place. If the applicant student had Computer Application as 10+2 equivalent subject, the marks of Computer Application will not be taken into any consideration. Only Computer Science marks from 10+2 is to be added/considered.

Note : It is customary for the applicant student to have the specific Honours subject that s/he is applying Honours for in his/her chosen H.S. mark sheet. The score of the subject must be 45% or more. It is not applicable for the applicants of Mass Communication and Journalism, Music and Computer Science.


EXAMPLE:


Language Papers Combination subjects
Bengali English Sanskrit Geography *History Philosophy ENVS
60 62 75 80 77* 82 85

*Applied for Honours in History



Grade Point = (60+62+82+80+77+77*) = 431

The exceptions are given below—


For Mass Comm. And Journalism and Music (Honours):


Grade Point = [Total marks obtained in Best FIVE papers in H.S./10+2 level (except Environmental Studies) + the highest marks obtained among the two Language papers]]


After the admission into Music (Honours) the candidates have to appear in a comprehensive vocal screening test


For Computer Science (Honours):


Grade Point=[best five combination subjects except Environmental Studies + marks of Computer Science in H.S./10+2 equivalent*]

**In case the applicant student did not have Computer Science as a 10+2 equivalent subject, the candidate needs to add their Mathematics marks from 10+2 equivalent in its place. If the applicant student had Computer Application as 10+2 equivalent subject, the marks of Computer Application will not be taken into any consideration. Only Computer Science marks from 10+2 is to be added/considered

For Computer Science (Honours):


Grade Point=[best five combination subjects except Environmental Studies + marks of Computer Science in H.S./10+2 equivalent*]

*In case the applicant student did not have Computer Science as a 10+2 equivalent subject, the candidate needs to add their Mathematics marks from 10+2 equivalent in its place. If the applicant student had Computer Application as 10+2 equivalent subject, the marks of Computer Application will not be taken into any consideration. Only Computer Science marks from 10+2 is to be added/considered
