The minimum passing marks has been distributed as: a minimum of 35 per cent marks in theory examination and 20 per cent marks in the internal assessment examination. The recommendation was given by a Standing Committee (dated July 30, 2015) which was constituted under PU Vice-Chancellor Professor Arun Kumar Grover, in order to review the ongoing semester system at PU. All recommendations of the committee were presented for ratification in the meeting of the Syndicate on August 30 and were consequently approved.

The committee had also recommended that if a candidate did not qualify 50 per cent of his/her papers up to the second or fourth semester, the candidate would not be promoted to the third and fifth semesters, respectively. It was also pointed out that if a candidate of a PU-affiliated college failed in the annual examination for BCom/BCA/BBA, admission should be given to the student under the semester system by creating additional seats in the respective colleges only after the approval of the PU authorities.
As per the recommendations of the committee, it was further observed that in case a BA/BSc student failed or absented himself/herself in the practical examination, he/she would be allowed to appear in both theory and practical examinations with re-appear cases.
