In case of Scaling down of marks, will it be shown in the marksheet? Any way to know if our marks are adjusted by the scaling down method?

R.    8668 Scaling Down the Marks Obtained by the Learner at the Internal Examination as Compared to the Marks Obtained by the Learner in the Semester End Theory Examination in the Course ConcernedIntroduced with effect from 2013-14 and is applicable for all semesters of all programs (aided and non-aided) of UG and PG for Credit Based Semester and Grading System under Faculties of Arts, Science and Commerce

Concept of scaling shall be applicable only for the marks obtained by the learners at all the individual courses.

Marks obtained by the learner at the Internal Assessment and Semester End Examinations should be converted to the percentage marks course wise.

Concept of scaling shall be applicable only in cases where the marks obtained by the learner in the Internal Assessment and Semester End Assessment Examinations differ by more than 20% in the course concerned i.e. percentage marks of the learner at a course in the Internal Assessment is 20% more than the percentage of marks scored by the learner concerned in the Semester End Examination in the course concerned.

Learner at the course concerned in the Internal Assessment should be scaled down to 20% plus the percentage score of the learner at the Semester End Examination.

The concept of scaling shall be applicable only in course/s where the learner has passed the course. In case if a learner fails in one or more courses at an attempt then the concept of scaling shall be applied to the courses that the learner has passed at the attempt concerned and for the remaining courses where the learner has failed, the concept of scaling will be applicable as and when the learner passes the course or earns the credit for the course.

The scaled marks can thus be used to calculate the Credits, Grades, Credit points earned by the learner can then be used to calculate the GPA, SGPA and CGPA.
Concept of scaling shall not be applicable where the percentage of the marks scored by the learner at the Semester End Examination is more than the percentage marks scored by the learner in the Internal Assessment at the course concerned. One of the reasons for the learner scoring low marks at the Internal Assessment could be non-appearance for one of the components of the Internal Assessment.
