As per Punjab Technical University’s calendar, Classes must be engaged for a minimum of 90 days in each semester. Classes may be arranged on Saturday/ Sunday or other holidays to make 90 days if it is not otherwise possible to meet the requirement of attendance. Each candidate is required to attend a minimum of 75% of the scheduled lectures/ tutorials/ practicals to be eligible to appear in examination of the subject. If a candidate fails to meet the requirements he/ she will be detained from appearing in the final University Examinations of that particular subject.

The 40 marks of internal evaluation are awarded by the teacher on the basis of continuous evaluation of the student, through class tests, seminars, home assignments and class work. Three class tests are conducted centrally during the semester, out of which best two tests are considered for award of Internal/ Sessional marks. 24 marks are assigned to class tests (best two out of three), 10 marks are assigned to assignment and tutorial sheets and 6 marks are based on class attendance.
