Dynamic Teachers.
Our physics department have well equipped laboratory.

Limitation of time due to credit base pattern.

Opportunity: <
Enrich the student with knowledge & to improve student having 35% to more than 60%. Through exhibition we encourage students towards research.

We will focus on research work with help of teacher & student to publish yearly at least two papers.
To do minor research project.
They are trying their best to crack NET/SET.

Future plan:
To Setup Research Lab.

The allocation of marks for the Internal Assessment and Semester End Examinations are as shown below:-

Internal Assessment:

It is defined as the assessment of the learners on the basis of continuous evaluation as envisaged in the Credit based system by way of participation of learners in various academic and correlated activities in the given semester of the progamme.

Semester End Assessment :

It is defined as the assessment of the learners on the basis of Performance in the semester end Theory/ written/ Practical examination.

Internal Assessment - 40%
