Assessment and Evaluation

During a semester the student may be required to take the following tests and examinations for each course(s). Each instrument carries proportionate marks which are accumulated in total marks.

UMT is using Relative Grading Scheme, allowing the student to achieve a grade with respect to his / her ranking in the class. Students are formally evaluated by the resource person through different pedagogical assessment tools throughout the semester.

Any given method can be used to grade the student in Relative Grading Scheme

  • Normal, Bell-Shaped Curve
  • Distribution Gap Method
  • Standard Deviation

A wide range of assessment methods are available to resource persons to evaluate the level of knowledge and skills acquired by students in a particular subject. The following two methods are employed at UMT, generally known as sessional evaluation and final term.

A combination of the following may be employed constituting sessional evaluation:

  • Case Study
  • Presentation
  • Assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Class Participation
  • Attendence
  • Projects
  • Viva Voce (for lab courses)
  • Mid Term Exams
  • Final Term Exams


The final standing of each participant, in each course,is assessed through the mid-term examination, sessional work(presentations, assignments, quizzes, class attendance, participation,practical) and final examination at the end of each semester.
