Structure of The Pre Degree Science Programme

(A) Available Courses Offered for the Pre-Degree Science Programme

The Pre-Degree Science Programme, run by LAUTECH, will for now offer remedial course in the five required subjects for admission into her programme viz: English Language, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.

The Pre-Degree Science Programme is an intensive programme and each course attracts 5 contact sessions per week to be divided between lectures and tutorials. Course content of each subject is thoroughly described in the handbook which is obtained after registration or download on the PDS Handbook page of the website.


(B) Evaluation of Pre-Degree Science Programme

Each subject of the Pre-Degree Science Programme will be evaluated through continuous assessment, tests, quizzes, reports and other assignments during the period. There will be final examination to round up the programme.

Total attainable marks of 100 will be computed from the Continuous Assessment (CA) and final examination. Percentage allotted to CA will be determined and announced by the subject instructors.

All assignments, tests, quizzes, reports and the final examination are weighted and compulsory. Absence by candidates from participating in any of these is at the candidate’s risk. Make-ups in any of the above may not be entertained because of the

intensity of the programme and time constraint.
