In accordance with the continuous evaluation system followed by our institution, students are assessed and evaluated throughout the semester. On a given day, it is very likely that students may have project work or quizzes and assignments in several classes. Amrita has a credit-based course curriculum, and assignments, seminars, presentations, practicals, and viva voce are part of daily life on the campus. This system helps inculcate a sense of responsibility among students. It helps them become creative and productive during their study period; this, in turn, helps them when they join a company after completing their studies.
A certain percentage of attendance is mandatory in order to write the examinations in all courses. Lunch break is from 12:00 noon to 01:50 p.m. Students stay back on campus after regular class hours with prior permission. This is required for those who want to use the additional time to complete their laboratory or written assignments. In the evening, students have the opportunity to attend evening bhajans in the Ashram prayer hall. In Amma’s divine presence, they become relaxed after intense college hours. After bhajans, dinner is served till 09:00 p.m.
