  24. 24. Academic EvaluationEvaluationAll courses are conducted and evaluated in a continuous & internal manner by the faculty who teach these courses. The studentregisters for a certain number of courses each semester; the year being divided into two semesters, and a summer term, wheneveroffered. A faculty member, as registration advisor, helps a student to draw up his programme, suitable to his pace and needs, which ismade possible by the course-wise time-table of the Institute. It is the responsibility of the student to attend classes regularly and tomaintain the required level of scholastic standing (Please refer to the Attendance Charter).AssessmentThe performance of a student in each course is assessed by the teacher by means of continuous evaluation throughout the semester inclass work, periodical quizzes, tests (sometimes unannounced), tutorials, home work, projects, etc. and a comprehensive examinationat the end of the semester. The student is thereby given a large number of opportunities to prove himself and be evaluated. The systemencourages and rewards continuous and systematic study. It provides constant feedback to the student as to where he stands, thusenabling him to cultivate regular habits of studying / learning and preparing himself for the future.Unusual methods of evaluation have been evolved in the Practice School courses to take account of certain traits which do not surfacein classroom education, like professional judgement, decision-making ability, interdisciplinary approach, initiative, leadership, senseof responsibility, etc.GradingThe system discards the conventional emphasis on a single final examination and numerical marks as the only absolute indication ofthe quality of a students performance. Thus, at the end of the semester the teacher of the course awards letter grades A, B, C, F to thestudent based on the total performance of the student and it is relative to the performance of others taking the same course. These lettergrades stand for quality performance : A-Excellent, B-Good, C-Fair and F- Fail.Further, these letter grades have points associated with them in a quantified hierarchy. There are also courses in which the teacherawards non-letter grades which have only a qualitative hierarchy. The teacher may also pronounce the performance of a student in acourse in terms of certain reports which should not be misconstrued as grades.The Institute, being fully residential with an internal and continuous evaluation system, expects every student to be responsible forregular attendance in classrooms, to appear in scheduled tests and examinations and to fulfil all other tasks assigned to him in everycourse. The system has adequate resilience to accommodate unforeseen situations through withdrawal from a course, mock-up tests,feedback from examinations and interaction with teachers. When, in spite of all these facilities, a student fails to co-operate with theteacher in the discharge of his part of the contract to such an extent that the teacher is unable to award any grade, the teacher isauthorized to give a “F” (FAIL) report.A student is deemed to have cleared a course if he obtains a grade in the course. However the educational philosophy of the Instituteinterlinks and at the same time distinguishes between the performance of a student in a single course and his overall cumulativeperformance. The overall performance of a student is indicated by an index known as the “Cumulative Grade Point Average” (CGPA).It is the weighted average of the grade points of all the letter grades received by the student since his entry into the Institute and isexpressed on a 10-point scale.During the students stay in the Institute, the Institute expects him to show certain minimum performance and progress. The minimumacademic requirement is regarding the performance and progress for the Integrated programme is :?of at least 4.5 at the end of every semester.A CGPA? than one C grade in a semester is allowed for integrated programmes.Not moreStudents who fail to meet the minimum academic requirements stipulated above are put under an appropriate committee whichmonitors their programmes and gives guidance so that they are properly rehabilitated at the earliest. This is done by AcademicCounseling Board (ACB) which is appointed by the Senate and is given authority to take appropriate action including discontinuanceof the student. 22
  25. 25. Academic ConductWe take all academic misconduct extremely seriously and investigate all alleged offences of cheating in assessed work andexaminations. Students suspected of misconduct are dealt with accordingly through the Academys Student Discipline Procedures.Academic misconduct during examinations includes:Unauthorized MaterialThe act of bringing unauthorized material (written, printed or in any other format) into the examination room; communicating with,receiving assistance from, copying from or providing assistance to another candidate during an examination; removing examinationbooks or worksheets from the examination room. If the Institute finds a student to be in breach of discipline by having cheated inassessed work and/or examinations, it has the discretion to apply a range of penalties, ranging from nullification of module results upto suspension or expulsion from the Institute. The standard penalty applied is to make null and void all assessments undertaken duringthe relevant semester. We understand that students may not be fully aware of the issues surrounding academic misconduct. It istherefore important that students inform themselves of these issues and seek the advice of staff faculty support service as soon as anyproblems arise. The consequences of misconduct in examinations and all other forms of assessment are severe and may result in allassessments undertaken at the relevant subject being made null and void.CopyingCopying the work of others, including that of other students in the class or group, is an indication of unfair means whereby one persongains credit for the work undertaken by another. Where an element of reproduction is a desirable element of an assessment, as mightbe the case in a group project or presentation, the instructions for the assessed work will specify the extent to which such reproduction ispermissible. The extent of legitimate reproduction must be acknowledged by a student within their work. Students are advised to checkthe rest of their work to ensure that it is their own. Working with other students in informal study groups is a desirable part of theacademic experience but students must ensure that the work that is finally submitted is theirs and not that of anyone else. Studentsshould keep copies of material such as working notes, or sketches of diagrams or drafts of essays that show that the work and itssource has been acknowledged and identified.PlagiarismAs the consequences of misconduct in examinations and all other forms of assessment are severe, the Student Guide to Plagiarism canbe found at the end of Part B, prior to the Appendices.Note on Detection of PlagiarismCollege may require student work to be submitted for checking using plagiarism detection software. This is intended to assist studentsin identifying possible plagiarism in course work submitted for assessment which could otherwise result in disciplinary action againststudents.CollusionCollusion involves an agreement to deceive. This means that more than one person is involved in the deception. An accusation ofcollusion may be added to an accusation of copying if there is clear evidence of the involvement of each party. Students should beextremely careful about lending their completed work to other persons. Students may think that they are helping others to meet adeadline in lending their work to others but it may result in problems if other students copy a students work without informing them.What starts out as a supportive action may carry the risk of an accusation of collusion.Examination Rules and RegulationsPassing in all the examinations is a must. Any student having backlog (s) will not be allowed to appear for campus placement facility asthe companies dont want to consider students with backlogs. Students, having any backlog, should appear in the examination beingheld for the juniors, to clear the same. The management is seriously considering a proposal to classify the students according to theirmarks and allow them to appear before selected companies according to their standards, as exhibited by their performance, forcampus placements. 23

Inthe spare time, they are generally engaged in extra-curricular activities. Therefore, students rarely get time to update themselves on dayto day business news. Moreover, Indian education system (primary, secondary and graduation) is designed in such a way, that nowherestudents develop a habit of reading business newspapers. However, being daily updated about business affairs is a requirement ofevery job and unless students develop this habit, they will struggle to outstandingly perform in their respective careers.Salient Features of BizquizWeekly / Fortnightly Business Awareness Quiz throughout the yearNews covered from leading business newspapers like Economic Times, Business Standard, DNA Money, Financial Express, Wall StreetJournal etc.News coverage from all business categories like Economy, Corporate, Sports, Entertainment, Lifestyle and People with specialemphasis on reasoning based news.Domain (Functional Subject) QuizzesAs a part of continuous evaluation process students will also be judged on the basis of their functional (Finance, HR, Marketing,Operations, IT & International Business) knowledge base.

  32. 32. All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become. - Buddha30
  33. 33. VipassanaThe TechniqueVipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of Indias most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered byGautam Buddha more than 2500 years ago and was taught by him as a universal remedy for universal ills.This non-sectarian technique aims for the total eradication of mental impurities and the resultant highest happiness of full liberation.Healing, not merely the curing of diseases, but the essential healing of human suffering, is its purpose.Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body,which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuouslyinterconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind andbody that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.The scientific laws that operate ones thoughts, feelings, judgements and sensations become clear. Through direct experience, thenature of how one grows or regresses, how one produces suffering or frees oneself from suffering is understood. Life becomescharacterized by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.The TraditionSince the time of Buddha, Vipassana has been handed down, to the present day, by an unbroken chain of teachers. Although Indian bydescent, the current teacher in this chain, Mr. S.N. Goenka, was born and raised in Burma (Myanmar). While living there he had thegood fortune to learn Vipassana from his teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin who was at the time a high Government official. After receivingtraining from his teacher for fourteen years, Mr. Goenka settled in India and began teaching Vipassana in 1969. Since then he hastaught tens of thousands of people of all races and all religions in both the East and West. In 1982 he began to appoint assistantteachers to help him meet the growing demand for Vipassana courses.The CoursesThe technique is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants follow a prescribed Code of Discipline, learn the basicsof the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results.The course requires hard, serious work. There are three steps to the training.The first step is, for the period of the course, to abstain from killing, stealing, sexual activity, speaking falsely, and intoxicants. Thissimple code of moral conduct serves to calm the mind, which otherwise would be too agitated to perform the task of self-observation.The next step is to develop some mastery over the mind by learning to fix ones attention on the natural reality of the ever changing flowof breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. By the fourth day the mind is calmer and more focussed, better able to undertake thepractice of Vipassana itself: observing sensations throughout the body, understanding their nature, and developing equanimity bylearning not to react to them.Finally, on the last full day participants learn the meditation of loving kindness or goodwill towards all, in which the purity developedduring the course is shared with all beings.The results come gradually through continued practice. It is unrealistic to expect all problems to be solved in ten days. Within that time,however, the essentials of Vipassana can be learned so that it can be applied in daily life. The more the technique is practised, thegreater the freedom from misery, and the closer the approach to the ultimate goal of full liberation. Even ten days can provide resultswhich are vivid and obviously beneficial in everyday life. The entire practice is actually a mental training. Just as we use physicalexercises to improve our bodily health, Vipassana can be used to develop a healthy mind. Because it has been found to be genuinelyhelpful, great emphasis is put on preserving the technique in its original, authentic form.The course is compulsory for all the students studying at FMS- Pune without any exceptions whatsoever. Students withpsychological disorders and those who feel can not be a part of team should refrain taking admission in our college.All those who try it will find Vipassana to be an invaluable tool with which to achieve and share real happiness with others. 31
